"Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996 I would like to comment on this ruling and suggest a change to the rules.....my prescription has not changed in 15 years, and yet the doctor insists on checking my sight every year and charging for it......this is a scam. I know when my eyes have changed and i do not need a person from the Luxottica group to tell me that my prescription has expired because it was only good for one year.......This is another scam perpetrated by the eyeglass industry and it's biggest monopoly LUXOTTICA. If the FTC is interested in protecting consumers against monopolies that control the ENTIRE eyeglass industry, then you should rewrite the rules so that short dated prescriptions without a medical rationale are illegal. This is a favorite ploy used by Lenscrafters, which of course, is owned by Luxottica. AND, every prescription should also contain the PD measurement - this is another scam they use to make you buy the glasses from them since they hold the SECRET PD measurement!! That company makes me sick. I suggest that the FTC be required to view the following video link about this monopoly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDdq2rIqAlM thank you
