Optometrists Training (UW-Madison - 1979)

Two Neillsville optometrists have successfully completed an examination by the Wisconsin State Board of Regulation and licensing, certifying them for the use of topical diagnostic drugs. They are Doctor John W. Foster and Dr. R. Tim Harvey.

Together with optometrists throughout Wisconsin, they have completed comprehensive studies in relation to general and clinical pharmacology through UW-Madison in cooperation with both the School of Medicine and the School of Pharmacology. Ohio State University and Indiana University School of Optometry also provided professional assistance.

The Wisconsin Optometric Association views this as an additional effort by optometrists to provide optimum vision care by enhancing abilities to diagnose visual conditions and eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma and tumors. In addition, drugs ae useful in helping to recognize systemic abnormalities, such as diabetes and hypertension, which also may be detected through an eye examination.
