Comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I have had a bear of a time trying to order a pair of glasses. I know my prescription is on file with my eye doctor and my optical shop can't make my glasses unless I present them with my current prescription. They offered to call and obtain verification that way, but as you can imagine, the doctor promised to provide a fax of the prescription, however, never did. It took me going back to the doctor and haggling with them for minutes to obtain my prescription. What should have taken minutes took days. It felt like they were holding my Rx ransom because I was looking to go elsewhere for glasses. That just doesn't seem right/fair.
