16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I would the opportunity to comment on Eyeglass Rule 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I was trying to place an order for eyeglasses recently,however my order was significantly delayed because my doctor would not respond to the request to verify my prescription quickly. I believe they should have an obligation to verify prescriptions within a reasonable time frame. The doctor's position should be to check eye health and provide a prescription, not try to sell the patient glasses. Thank you for your serious consideration of this rule.
