Call to Action for Concerned Citizens
Optometrists, who are not medical doctors or surgeons, want Florida legislators to give them the authority to operate on the eyes of Floridians with lasers and scalpels-all without completing the required medical education, clinical and surgical training that physicians and surgeons are required to complete. In addition, they are looking to expand their prescribing authority to virtually all prescription medications, including opioids. If optometrists have their way, the safety and quality of eye care in Florida will be at risk.
Please write your legislators and urge them to protect patient safety by voting NO against this dangerous legislation!
