BC Government prepared to blind its citizens by outlawing routine eye exams for glasses & contacts

Dr. Scherzer, a glaucoma specialist in Vancouver comments on a new Canadian regulation,  with potentially ominous results for patients...

Please visit the British Columbia Association of Optometrists website to read a very important posting regarding new regulations set to be implemented in our province that will serve to blind our population by ignorance. The change in the Health Professions Act will permit opticians to dispense glasses or contact lenses without the need for anything more than computerized eyesight testing to estimate the required strength. By no longer requiring a proper examination by an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist, the people of our province will no longer be screened for asymptomatic eye diseases like glaucoma, retinal tears, and other conditions that will lead to permanent visual loss if not found and treated early.
