Letter to Michigan House of Representatives

This week, APS wrote Michigan lawmakers to voice concerns about HB4356, which jeopardizes the vision health of roughly 1.5 million contact lens-wearing patients in Michigan.

HB 4356 places the commercial interests of certain retailers ahead of patient health and safety by removing the critical doctor-patient relationship from the center of care.
