   penalty  provided  by  law,  a  civil  penalty to the Department in an      
   amount not to exceed $5,000 per offense. Excludes the division of fees      
   between 2 optometrists, an optometrist and  a  physician  licensed  to      
   practice  medicine  in  all  its  branches,  or  an  optometrist and a

        Provides that the patient care decisions that an  individual  who

   may not influence are diagnostic  or  treatment  decisions.   Provides
