I am an ophthalmologist. Measuring pupillary distance is not and has never been part of the measurements for prescribing glasses. This is the job of the filling optician. Having to add this measurement to my refraction exam would be an additional un-reimbursed mandate. I am opposed to this proposed new burdensome requirement.
