Parents are complaining to local State Senator Tim Knopp of Bend about a bill that would mandate comprehensive eye exams for their children. 

 

Knopp says similar to immunizations - kids couldn't go to school until they have the exams.  Some parents don't have insurance and don't want the expense of the exam if their child has healthy eye-sight.  others feel its too much government intervention.

 

"I think it's just a general backlash from parents who don't like the government telling them what to do -i think the sponsors have gotten the message - and are favoring a more educational approach encouraging the importance of eye screenings" 

 

Knopp predicts this Senate Bill will die - but a trimmed down version on the house side may move forward.
