You must act promptly.

You Have Legal Rights

You have the right to defend yourself by demanding a trial before an administrative law judge where you can confront and cross examine witnesses, and challenge the investigative findings of the California Board of Optometry. You may issue requests for discovery, subpoenas to compel the appearance of witnesses and documents. You may call witnesses in your own defense, including fact, expert and character witnesses, and introduce mitigation evidence to context. You may challenge the decision to the superior court.

Sight is one of our most precious and valuable senses, making the the care of our eyes among our biggest health priorities. As an optometrists, also known as doctor of optometry (OD), you use special equipment and a keen eye to diagnose vision problems and eye diseases while testing patients for visual acuity, focus, depth and color perception.

Although your training as an optometrist finds you prescribing and dispensing eyeglasses and contact lenses, it can also provide vision therapy and, in some cases, rehabilitation as well, analyzing and testing results as you develop treatment plans. In the recent past, many optometrists have also become experts in laser vision correction, freeing many of patients from their glasses or contacts entirely.

California requires that optometrists be licensed through the California State Board of Optometry after having received a Doctor of Optometry degree from an accredited optometry school and having passed exams at the national, regional, state and local clinical board levels as well.
