I took a piss next to Johnnie Cochran in the New Orleans airport back in 1999 or 2000. Ate next to Helena Bonham Carter and her kids just outside of London a few years back. ...

[quote]Sorry...I'm with the optoms here. All of this hooting and hollering b.s. Is about money. Now more people who previously couldn't have even considered laser surgery will have an option. On the other hand, people who believe all of the b.s. The optho's are spewing certainly retain the right to ...

[quote]How much cheaper are optoms going to be for these surgeries so that it will be worth choosing you over an MD?[/quote] I can answer that question. I won't be any cheaper at all. Insurance companies are going to pay the same no matter who performs the procedure. This bill doesn't save th...

[quote]Is it the same 4 day course the older MDs took when LASIK came out? I hope the ODs get to go to Florida for it as well.[/quote] Just Stop. Those older MD's had also been performing thousands of surgeries for decades! One of the biggest problems with the optoms supporting this bill is...

[quote]This is my only real point. I understand that there are other differences. However, I think you might be surprised to see what they actually learn in optometry school. They also take neuro anatomy, cardiology, and pharmacology. [/quote] I will agree with you that optometry school is a re...

[quote]Or let ophthalmologists do liposuction. Oh wait[/quote] Last time I checked, whether you like it or not, ophthalmologists are medical doctors. Therefore, they are qualified to perform that procedure. HOWEVER, if they screw up they are subject to sanction by the Louisiana State Board of Med...

[quote]In the best interest of the patient? Yeah right. That's the reason ophthalmologists are challenging this. Get real. Let the patient decide. If they don't believe it is safe for them then they won't chose an optometrist. Give them the choice. Free enterprise [/quote] If you want me to get...

re: Optometry: LA HB 1065/SB 568: What if your Louisiana Eye Surgeon is NOT an MD? - EYEDOCNO
In the interest of full disclosure, I am an ophthalmologist. I obviously am not in favor of this bill. If it passes, I have no problem at all competing with optometrists. I am completely confident in my abilities and my surgical results. You don't learn to do surgery in a weekend course as is ...

[quote]Doesn't change the fact that a general dentist is not a medical doctor, doesn't do a residency, and performs surgery. Optometrists core science courses are also the same as medical school. Look at a school such as UAB where they offer MD, DDS, and OD degrees. First 2 years are all pretty much...
