The 2013 legislative session brought very important changes for the practice of optometry. On April 19, 2013, Governor Rick Scott signed HB-239 into law, which significantly increased the scope of practice of optometry. One of those changes amended Section 463.0135, Florida Statutes, expanding the scope of practice to allow a certified optometrist to perform any eye examination, including a dilated examination, as required or authorized by law for boxing exhibitions.
