16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I recently tried to order glasses online and wasn't able to do so without my PD. Unfortunately, my doctor didn't provide that on my original prescription, so I had to take a time-consuming trip to a few optical shops before finally obtaining that number. In this day and age, consumers should be given the power to find their own eyeglass provider, and should get all information relevant to their prescriptions. Please consider this in evaluating existing rules around eyeglass prescriptions.
