PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
(Board of Optometry)
This memo serves as notice that the board of optometry is withdrawing the CR-101 for chapter 246-851 WAC which was filed February 23, 2010, and published in WSR 10-06-038. The original proposal was to develop a rule to clarify the authority of optometrists to prescribe therapeutic contact lenses used as a medication delivery system.
Since filing WSR 10-06-038, the board of optometry has determined that existing statutory language is sufficient to address the authority of optometrist[s] to prescribe therapeutic contact lenses. For this reason, the CR-101 for chapter 246-851 WAC is no longer needed.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Judy Haenke, board of optometry program manager, at (360) 236-4947.
