AOA takes positions on telehealth, CE, NASEM report

June 28, 2017

WASHINGTON – The American Optometric Association’s House of Delegates adopted 12 resolutions here at Optometry’s Meeting.

The delegates endorsed a statement on eye and vision telehealth services that was approved by the AOA Board of Trustees in February. It specifies that “the standard of care must remain the same regardless of whether” the services are provided in person or remotely and that telehealth services cannot “replace an in-person comprehensive eye examination provided by an eye doctor.”
