I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I think the FTC should revisit how quickly a doctor is required to verify a prescription for a patient. It doesn't make any sense to me that this would be treated so differently for glasses and contacts-- seems they should be treated the same way. Given the ease of current communications via email, I can not see any reason for a delay of anymore than a week. Thank you for your consideration of my thoughts on this matter.
