I get it Smack you tend not to worry too much about a natural disaster until it hits your side of the planet. But it still doesn't make it right. The problem here is that you don't know what you don't know-not how easy the procedure is to learn. I can't tell you how many times I've been referred a p...

re: Optometry: LA HB 1065/SB 568: What if your Louisiana Eye Surgeon is NOT an MD? - jamarkus
Anybody (who's not an optometrists) & knows what really happened in this session is disgusted with the legislative process & people in it. The way it side stepped real training for real surgeries on real people just because they had a puppet in the Senate. Taking the easy easy way out. Hard for peo...

re: Optometry: LA HB 1065/SB 568: What if your Louisiana Eye Surgeon is NOT an MD? - jamarkus
So is their an Optometry surgical review panel? Like there is a medical review panel? Are their standards the same? How does that work?...

This will turn hurt > help the optoms. NOW people know the difference between the two--already patients are feeling a sense of pause & mistrust about their OD. And their relationship with the medical community has soured which is a shame because there WAS was a pretty good synergistic relationship...

re: Optometry: LA HB 1065/SB 568: What if your Louisiana Eye Surgeon is NOT an MD? - jamarkus
Well I'll guess we will have to live with 2 distinct standards of care: an OPTOMETRY standard based on their level of training (on pig eyes) & experience (ie. 4 days of lid & laser surgery training weekend course for 3-4 procedures -that happen to reimburse well) which was single-handedly jammed t...

Put your money where your mouth is- if you really have a problem or need surgery - please go to your local optom or NPor PA & let them fix you -& when there's a complication-let them handle it. You may not end up seeing too well or may even lose a limb but it will be cheap & convenient ...

Sure they did -this round. But not on merit or b/o respect -the head of the senate pushed it through plain & simple. Dirty LA politics. Nobody with common sense would want a minimally trained OD cutting on their eye when a highly qualified MD is next door The OD's are grabbing what they can whil...

So when an optometrist gets sued for malpractice after a botched eye or lid surgery, will they have to go in front of a medical review panel like other surgeons?...
