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 go through a process of taking my picture with a credit card, which did not seem to be the most accurate approach to getting this information. It seems strange to me that if I were to order contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but this is not the case for my eyeglasses. I believe the rule should be changed to standardize with contacts.
