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 if I want to get a new pair of glass, which is ridiculous as my prescription hasn't changed in over 10 years! It's frustrating that I'm required to come back, spend money on an exam and take time off from work to do it. And then to learn that my doctor gave me didn't give me some of the details I need, like the pupillary distance because I didn't think to ask. This requirement is completely unnecessary and impractical.
