PD measurement is almost never a part of an eye examination as this has historically been the task of the optician when a patient is purchasing glasses. Therefore, requiring PD measurements on eyeglass prescriptions is unnecessary and will require more time/expense on the part of the examining doctor. The current rule regarding this should NOT be changed.
