Hi, I would like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I order new eyeglasses probably once a year, and I recently tried doing so online. The problem? I wasn't able to do so without my pupillary distance (PD) measurement, which my eye doctor hadn't provided with my original prescription. So I had to call around to various eye doctors and glasses shops before finally finding one that would take the measurement without a charge. In the end, the whole thing took about a week longer than it needed to. This seems like a ridiculous thing that's easily fixable. What's the hold up? Make my life easier, please! Thanks, Brian
