KY could regulate smartphone eye exams

A bill in Kentucky could regulate smartphone eye exams. The law would ban companies from issuing prescriptions during a mobile eye exam unless the information provided during an exam was verified by a Kentucky-licensed eye doctor or physician. Doctors would have to have real-time interaction with patients during the exam and patients would have to have had an eye exam in the past 2 years. Some companies are worried the law, if passed, would ban them from doing business in Kentucky. The bill is on its way to the House of Representatives.
