Optometry/Ophthalmology Compromise Being Considered

Posted By Cheryl Frazier, Thursday, March 7, 2019
Over the last week, there has been a whirlwind of activity surrounding our scope expansion bill and advocacy efforts in Annapolis. After a Senate Hearing and House Sub-Committee Work Session last week, representatives from organized Optometry (MOA) and Ophthalmology (MSEPS) met this Monday in an attempt to work out a compromise agreement. With only doctors there, politics was taken out of the equation resulting in a respectful and rational dialogue that lasted more than 4 hours. The result? COMPROMISE! Yes, we may see the dawn of a new era of Maryland Optometry. As always, the devil is in the details and so we remain cautious BUT OPTIMISTIC. 
More to come soon, so stay tuned...

MOA also want to acknowledge and thank the optometry and ophthalmology diplomats who attended the compromise meeting. (Drs. Kevin Johnson, Robert Stutman, Scott LaBorwit, David Baranano, David Glasser and Sonny Goel)
