Attention New Jersey Ophthalmologists:
Ophthalmology is Under Attack!

The optometrists have officially achieved introduction of a bill in both the NJ Assembly A-5445 (Benson/Giblin/McKnight) and Senate S3841 (Diegnan/Oroho) which calls for an aggressive expansion of the scope of practice for optometrists. This bill would allow optometrists to practice far beyond their training, education and experience including:

  • Laser surgery on the eye to treat glaucoma
  • Post cataract laser surgery on the eye
  • Incisional surgery on the eyelid with injectable anesthesia
  • Other surgeries unilaterally determined by the New Jersey State Board of Optometrists—which contains no medical doctors or trained surgeons!

We Need Your Help! Immediate Action is Needed:

We can’t compete with the financial resources that organized Optometry has without every Ophthalmologist being a member of the NJAO. Your membership empowers the NJAO to be an effective advocate on your behalf and for the patients you serve. If you are unsure of your membership status – please contact Meagan Rosina by email  mrosina@njpsi.com or call 609-392-1201

Be on the look out for more information on what you can do to contact your legislator and ask them to vote NO on bills that allow surgery by optometrists.
