I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I'm currently required to update my prescription every 1-2 years, but I've worn glasses since I was 8 and my prescription has never changed. It seems a little silly that I have to take a day off work to go to an eye appointment when I know my prescription won't change for eyeglasses. Also, the inconsistencies with expiration date (it can be valid for as long as 5 years but also as short as 1 year) make getting a new prescription a little dubious. Thank you for this opportunity to comment.
