The Governor signed the Early Eyedrop Refill Bill into law on April 16.  The bill was an initiative of the Wisconsin Academy of Ophthalmology and led by WAO President-elect Dr Suzanne Falkenberry.  After its initial introduction in January, the bill received strong bi-partisan support in both the Assembly and Senate and was passed by the legislature at the end of March.  Special thank you to all those who contacted their legislators on behalf of the Academy, and to the many other state associations who supported the bill – including the Medical College of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Pharmacy Society, Wisconsin Medical Society and the Wisconsin Optometric Association.
