Action Taken By ASCO Positively Impacts Eye Care in Brazil

July 12, 2013

ASCO shows its support to optometrists worldwide by writing a letter to the President of the Republic of Brazil asking her to veto Medical Bill No. 268/2002 which, if passed, “will significantly reduce access to immediate and affordable eye healthcare in Brazil”.

ASCO, and its World Council of Optometry colleagues, persuaded the President to veto the item that affected optometry.

A victory for optometrists.
