Proposed Regulation – Board of Examiners of Ophthalmic Dispensers and Ophthalmic Technicians

​ ​​​

NEWARK – The Board of Examiners of Ophthalmic Dispensers and Ophthalmic Technicians has proposed amendments to regulations governing applications, accreditation requirements for ophthalmic education, clinical education, and reporting requirements.   

The proposed amendments establish the information an applicant needs to submit to the Board in order to obtain an apprentice certificate and require clinical education supervisors to be individuals qualified to provide ophthalmic services who are physically present during clinical education.  The proposed amendments also establish accreditation standards for ophthalmic education programs.  A proposed new rule requires licensees to report misconduct on the part of other licensees and instances of unlicensed practice to the Board.   

The proposed regulation and information on how to submit a comment by October 18, 2019, can be viewed on the Division of Consumer Affairs’ website here.
