16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I would like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. Obtaining a prescription for my eyeglasses has been crucial, improving my ability to purchase quality glasses at fair prices. The best eyeglasses that I have found have been online. Currently, the prescription provided by the optometrist does not include the pupillary distance (PD) needed to prepare prescription eyeglasses. In order to allow me to purchase the best prescription eyeglasses, the PD should be included in the prescription. This addition empowers both consumers and businesses, and is needed today.
