Congratulations to Dr. Cari Cannon the new MSO President and thank you to Dr. Matthew Forgues for your exemplary leadership during your extended term! Best Wishes to you both.
The MSO Executive Board invited Lumenis Optima to deliver a presentation on Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology at the 2018 Annual Meeting in December. The MSO Executive Board reviewed the information provided and over the past six months has worked to present this information to the Massachusetts Optometry Board for their deliberation, consideration, and approval. The use of IPL technology was not previously allowed by optometrists in MA.
After multiple presentations, industry testimony, MSO support, and consumer input, the Mass Board crafted policies and approved IPL in MA. (8/21/19)
The determined advocacy of the MSO helped deliver an expansion of emerging technology to its members for dry eye management.
The MSO Executive Board congratulates the Massachusetts Board of Optometry for their thoughtful and thorough decision-making process.
