16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I would like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. As both an eyeglass wearer and employee of an eyewear brand (Warby Parker), I believe that there should be a rapid verification system in place to ensure that when I (or any customer) buy new glasses, I don't have to wait several days longer than necessary due to the excess time my doctor takes to verify my valid, current prescription. This becomes a real problem when customers need their new glasses as soon as possible for a variety of reasons (upcoming wedding, broke their last pair, got a new prescription, etc).
