I appreciate you registering my comment about Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. Recently I attempted to buy a second pair of reading glasses. Though I had received my eyeglass prescription only 16 months prior, and my prescription hadn't changed, I was forced to pay for a costly and inconvenient eye exam. I require eyeglasses to read, but my prescription rarely changes. The current structure is arbitrary, expensive, and seems unnecessary. Please allow us to use a prescription beyond a single year. Thank you.
