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. My prescription has remained basically the same, and I am able to determine when a new prescription may be warranted. It's frustrating & time consuming that I have to go back to my doctor to "update" my prescription every time I want new glasses or to replace a damaged or lost pair Even if my Rx has slightly changed, I am better off with new, undamaged glasses than with damaged lenses that restrict my vision or no glasses at all. I'm trying to purchase new glasses but am unable to do so with my existing prescription...although I know I can see out of that prescription just fine.
