'Yes on 793' launches first TV ad


OKLAHOMA CITY (Sept. 7) - The Yes on 793 campaign will launch their first campaign commercial this weekend introducing Oklahomans to State Question 793 and the need to increase access, affordability and choice for eye care in our state.

Campaign Chair Tim Tippit said, "Allowing retail stores to offer eye care services such as eye exams and eyewear will work to improve access to affordable and convenient eye care for patients of all ages and incomes. Even more, this will bring down the cost of eye care for consumers and increase options for all Oklahomans. State Question 793 would let optometrists’ practice in retail stores, such as Costco, Walmart, Target and others– just as they do in 47 other states. Once again, Oklahoma is losing a border war to Texas, Kansas, Arkansas and other states who have this option."

Tim Tippit also said this is a statewide effort to educate voters on this important issue, "This is a robust statewide media buy. The opposition continues to mislead the public with false claims. Oklahoma eye doctors have spent all their time attacking the free market and maligning fellow optometrists to protect their bottom line at all costs - even if it means less access to care and higher prices for Oklahoma patients. The mistruths and fear mongering have been disappointing to say the least. It is imperative that we make every effort to provide factual information on the need to change this outdated, special interest protection and allow Oklahoma consumers the access, affordability and choice enjoyed by 47 other states. We need State Question 793 for children, families, seniors and all citizens."
