Eyeglasses are a medical device and should be treated as such. Prescriptions for eyeglasses should expire per the prescribing doctor's discretion. They should only contain the date of the exam and expiration, prescription, signature and any recommendations by the prescribing doctor that may benefit the patient. No other measurement or instruction is needed.
