    Legislation targets contact lens prescription verification shortcomings

    Well I don't ever read too much as things like this in congress, so that's good. It may not solve the issues 100% but at least they are talking about it.

    Great read but what do Mitch and Chuck think?

    From the bottom of the article:


    Once again, optometry's advocates are called upon to act. Here's how you can take part:

    Visit the AOA Online Action Center, or text "AOA" to 855.465.5124 to access the Action Center directly from your mobile device, to view these priority issues and connect with your U.S. House members to encourage their support.

    Educate yourself on AOA's priority federal legislation and advocacy activities
    , such as H.R. 3975. Download fact sheets from the 2019 AOA on Capitol Hill to understand these important topics.

    Consider investing in AOA-PAC
    , the only federal political action committee dedicated to fighting and winning for optometry.

    Read more
    about how optometry's advocates shined a national spotlight on optometry's priority issues, including the contact lens prescription verification process and newly introduced Dental and Optometric Care Access Act, during AOA on Capitol Hill 2019.

    $ending a little something to the PAC is how to get action imo.
