Section 4725.591 | Optical dispensing by volunteers licensed in other state.
Section 4725.41 of the Revised Code does not apply to a person who holds in good standing a valid license from another state to engage in optical dispensing and is engaging in optical dispensing as a volunteer without remuneration during a charitable event that lasts not more than seven days.
When a person meets the conditions of this section, the person shall be deemed to hold, during the course of the charitable event, a license to engage in optical dispensing from the state vision professionals board and shall be subject to the provisions of this chapter authorizing the board to take disciplinary action against a license holder. Not less than seven calendar days before the first day of the charitable event, the person or the event's organizer shall notify the board of the person's intent to engage in optical dispensing at the event. During the course of the charitable event, the person's scope of practice is limited to the procedures that a dispensing optician licensed under this chapter is authorized to perform unless the person's scope of practice in the other state is more restrictive than in this state. If the latter is the case, the person's scope of practice is limited to the procedures that a dispensing optician in the other state may perform.
