    From what I know you would need a license to even consider working but never heard of someone using other doctor's license

    I believe FL is a licensed state like TN. I do know that in TN it means that an office has to have a license on premises all hours they are open. You can still work unlicensed, but the pay is substantially less.

    Florida is a licensed state.
    Florida licensed Optician must be on premises at all times if he owns the practice or if the optician works for large box stores.
    You may work under the direct supervision of the Dr as long as the Dr owns the business.
