This is what I've been talking about. We are a bought and sold profession. They constantly hit us up for money so they (the AOA) can bribe politicians to let us do procedures we are trained for and bill on equal par to other doctors. THIS IS THEIR ONLY REAL JOB. They are like the mob
If the profession can't stand on it's own without constant payoffs, just let it die a quick death. .
jeez, what is wrong with you?? you seriously need some help, see a psychiatrist or something. Are you always like this? Nobody is trying to hurt you and the world is not coming to and end. Deep breaths and relax. Everything you write depicts that the sky is falling, just tone down on all the drama.
In regards to the video you didn't even mention the world VSP or stand alone vision plans, which the entire video was about. You just go crazy on AOA, how they will take your money and kids from you. You do realize that this profession doesn't exist in many countries, Optometrists in US have the most privileges compared to any other country. These rights weren't just handed, bills were passed which requires money. Yes money. Just look at BC, Canada where health minister was paid off to allow opticians to do eye exams. Do you want to practice where opticians can do the same things you do. This profession needs representation in the white house whether you like it or not, that could be AOA or AOS or whoever.
