IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING DEXTENZA AND KLARITY-C

30 Oct 2019 10:12 PM | Katherine Dunatov (Administrator)

During the September 27, 2019 Board of Optometry meeting, the Board approved Dextenza (dexamethasone ophthalmic insert) 0.4 mg and approved Klarity-C (cyclosporine) 0.1% for addition to Rule 64B13-18.002, Florida Administrative Code – Formulary of Topical Pharmaceutical Agents.

Important Note: At this time, Dextenza and Klarity-C cannot be prescribed by Certified Optometrists in Florida until the rule has been approved. Once the rule has gone through the approval process, notice will be provided on the board website and both may be prescribed by Certified Optometrists at that time.
