In a recent column (“WV must revise optometry laws to attract new optometrists”), an optometrist espouses the need for lawmakers to “modernize” our state’s optometry laws. What she is really asking policy makers to do is change state law to allow optometrists, who are not medical doctors or trained surgeons, to perform eye surgery. If permitted, this will jeopardize the eye health of West Virginia patients.
