This bill “uses health practice mandates to stifle competition for the benefit of a single industry,” he says.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley vetoed a bill that would have banned the use of Opternative in the state and required that patients see an optometrist for an in-person exam to obtain a prescription, Chicago Inno reports. The article cites Hailey’s written remarks:
Opternative is a Chicago-based company that, through its app, allows patients between the ages of 18 and 40 to take a 25-minute eye test and then receive a prescription for contact lenses or glasses for $40. The state of Georgia recently passed a law that requires patients to go for an in-person exam in order to obtain a prescription.
