Thank you for the opportunity to comment on Ophthalmic Practice Rules (Eyeglass Rule), 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. Recently I placed an order for eyeglasses, and my order was significantly delayed because my ophthalmologist didn't verify my prescription in a timely manner. I believe eye care practitioners should have an obligation to release and/or verify eyeglass prescriptions for their patients within a reasonable time frame.
