Delaware State Board Of Examiners
CHANGES IN LICENSE LAW:
Senate Bill 143, enacted 8/2016, clarifies optometric and prescriptive practices and procedures that Delaware-licensed Therapeutic and Diagnostic Optometrists are permitted to perform. The major changes involve which medications you can prescribe (24 Del. C. § 2101) and a new duty to report (24 Del. C. §2123). If you have questions, contact the Board office at the phone or email below.
More than 100 million U.S. adults now live with diabetes or prediabetes, a condition that if left untreated could result in type 2 diabetes within five years. That's an enormous burden on the American health care system, and one that won't improve without a concerted effort on the part of every medical discipline involved. As frontline, primary eye care providers, doctors of optometry are well positioned to make an impactful and lasting contribution.
