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. Ultimately, the process took a full week longer than it needed to. It seems strange to me that when I order my contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for my eyeglasses. Having the PD on the Rx done by the prescribing doctor makes the most sense. It should not be done by technicians.
