Optometry Issue Might Go To Oklahoma Voters

Updated:

    Oklahoma voters might get to decide whether optometrists will be permitted to operate inside Oklahoma stores.
    A group supported by Walmart says they've gathered enough signatures to place the measure on Oklahoma's November ballot.
    Oklahomans for Consumer Freedom announced Thursday they've gathered about 255,000 signatures from the state's registered voters. That's more than twice the number needed.
    If Oklahoma voters approve, State Question 793 would amend the state Constitution and nullify current state laws that prohibit optometrists from operating inside a retail establishment.
    Supporters say the proposal would offer consumers more choices and more affordable eye care.
    The proposal is opposed by the Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians, which describes the effort as a profit-driven power grab by Walmart and other large retailers.
