I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. After getting my eye exam from Visionworks in Clifton park NY, I was told that I could have my prescription but that the PD (pupillary Distance)was the doctors property and I would have to pay an extra fee to have the information. A PD is measured during my exam and is necessary to order prescription lenses. Withholding this information can be compared to my physician withholding me medical information from me. This is not right and certainly unethical.
