I am a practicing ophthalmologist in Washington and prescribe eyeglasses daily. However, I do not own an optical shop. I object to the proposed requirement of precribing providers to include the pupillary distance measurements. We continue to have services bundled and this is another example of adding a service without any reimbursement. It may seem like a small task, but when there are thousands of patient visits per provider every year, the workload adds up. Please do not pass this requirement. Thank you. Gary Chung MD
