    Confused Consulting

    I have a question.

    What are the legalities of becoming a personal eyewear consultant outside of a store or retail chain without an optical license, while having a disclaimer stating such?
    OFC while operating under an LLC.

    (Personal Eyewear consultant meaning: Meeting with people and helping them with buying their eyewear online. Which would include taking measurements and placing orders online for them for a FEE and them signing a waiver for the service.)

    Depends on the laws in your state, either way, you would need to register your "business" before helping customers. Having your own license for this is strongly recommended, otherwise you'll be labelled the same way "street pharmacists" are.

    disclaimers aren't ways of getting past laws.
    -Poly is the best substrate for coatings.
    -Poly is extremely scratch resistant.
    -Poly is extremely impact resistant.
    -Poly is unparalleled in clarity.
    -Poly is much lighter than traditional crown glass.
    Like poly, you can trust me about 40% of the time.
