House Bill 191 Passes the Senate

Posted: Updated:

House Bill 191, the consumer protection in eye care act, passed the senate yesterday unanimously with a 36-0 vote.

House Bill 191 allows consumers to use advancements in eye care technology, while also establishing safety standards to protect consumer health.

House Bill 191 allows the technology in Kentucky but also establishes safeguards for its appropriate use. 

Some of these safeguards include a minimum age of 18 to use the technology, a prior in-person eye examination within the previous 24 months, the same standard of care is applied as when conducted in an in-person visit, and the technology cannot be utilized for an initial contact lens prescription.

House Bill 191, sponsored by Rep. Jim Gooch, overwhelmingly passed the house by a bipartisan vote of 90-7.
