Thanks for giving me the opportunity to comment on Eyeglass Rule 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I was trying to place an order for eyeglasses recently, but my order was significantly delayed because my doctor didn't verify my prescription quickly. I believe they should have an obligation to verify prescriptions within a reasonable time frame. By allowing them to take their time in verifying prescriptions, it tightens their monopoly on eyeglasses and makes it more difficult for other organizations to take advantage of free enterprise in the form of selling prescription eyeglasses.
