Vision Monday - WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety (HCAPS) and the American Optometric Association (AOA) support Representatives Michael Burgess (R-TX) and Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE) for the introduction of the Contact Lens Prescription Verification Modernization Act. If passed, this legislation, which was introduced on April 20, 2023, would prohibit sellers’ manipulation of the current contact lens prescription verification system and restore doctors’ oversight. The legislation, jointly backed by the AOA and HCAPS, is a priority issue for optometry’s advocates heading to Washington, D.C. in June, for the AOA’s single-largest federal advocacy event, AOA on Capitol Hill.
