Just wanted to post a direct quote from a letter sent to the American Academy of Ophthalmology from members of the New Mexico House of Representatives Business Committee. "The offensive ads that you have been running on television and radio are both appalling and ill-founded. Resorting to scare tactics with regard to the citizens of this state, most especially the children is egregious. We are elected to represent the people of this state and the insinuation in these ads that we would put the health of the public at risk is outrageous and offensive. A personal approach to the members of this committee to discuss your issues with this legislation would have been a more professional and ethical method of promoting your viewpoint." "It is unfortunate that organizations like the American Academy of Ophthalmology choose to deceive the public with this type of negative and misleading advertising." And others wonder why Optometry has to be so defensive? Even legislators are finially getting tired of the attacks from Ophthalmology. Its pretty sad really. Please no flaming, I'm just presenting actual events.
