Can someone in B.C. comment on this? Quite disturbing if passed:

1) Opticians being able to perform unsupervised independent automated refraction (what they politely call “sight testing”)

2) Removal of restrictions that allow only optometrists or opticians or their staff to dispense glasses and contacts (yes, anyone)

3) Allowing people to order glasses or contacts online without having to provide the seller with a copy of their prescription or sight test assessment...:eek:
