SB 153 Hearing Aid Dealers and Dispensers; exempt certain activities

Voted on Friday March 24, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This bill was entirely replaced by language dealing with scope of practice for Optometrists. It permits Optometrists (rather than current standard of only Opthamologists) to practice injections in and around the eye. These types of scope expansion are important as we combat healthcare provider shortages in rural Georgia.
