Injectable Medications in Ocular Care

“You’re going to put a needle where? You are the glasses and contacts doctor, not the injections doctor.” In the words of football coach Lee Corso, “Not so fast, my friend.” With scope of practice expanding in many states, it may be only a matter of time before injections are a regular part of an optometrist’s daily grind.
