I have a comment about the Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. Ordering prescription eyeglasses online shouldn't be made difficult by uncooperative opticians or optometrists. I believe that a prescription for eyeglasses should include your pupillary distance (PD)--a measurement that's important for correct fit of eyeglasses. My usual eye doctor's office would not give out this information. In fact, they wouldn't even measure my PD it unless I purchased glasses from them. That seems a little wrong.
