30.010 Diagnosis Treatment of Eye Diseases by Nonmedical Practitioners


Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Diseases by Nonmedical Practitioners: Only a person who is licensed to practice medicine is qualified to diagnose and treat diseases of the eye, ocular adnexa, or other diseases which could cause blindness. The Texas Medical Association opposes legislation allowing diagnostic or therapeutic use of legend drugs in eye care by nonphysicians without proper supervision and responsibility by a physician (Board of Councilors, p 59, A-94; reaffirmed BOC Rep. 3-A-04; amended BOC Rep. 6-A-14).
