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. Importantly, I had no other eyeglasses at the time. I wear contacts, but I need a pair of backup glasses in case of infection. If I had become unable to wear my contacts during this time I would have been severely handicapped waiting for my glasses. I believe they should have an obligation to verify prescriptions within a reasonable time frame.
