Notice of Variances and Waivers

Board of Optometry
64B13-4.002: Reexamination
The Board of Optometry hereby gives notice:
that the Board of Optometry has issued an Order to Grant on the Petition for Waiver or Variance filed on April 14, 2011, by Rachel de la Riva Marcy, O.D. The Notice of Petition for Variance was published in Vol. 37, No. 17, April 29, 2011, Florida Administrative Weekly. The petition seeks a variance from Rule 64B13-4.002, F.A.C., with regard to an extension of time to allow a second retake due to the dates of the tests not being within the two year period by only 12 days. The Board considered the petition at its meeting held on June 8, 2011, by telephone conference. The Board’s Order, filed on July 5, 2011, approved to issue a waiver or variance in response to this petition because it would violate principles of fairness to deny Petitioner a retake of the examination when the deadline was affected by the date the exam was scheduled.
A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting:
Bruce Deterding, Executive Director, Board of Optometry, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #C07, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3257.
