Medical Exemption to Window Tint Law
This application shall be attested to by a licensed physician/optometrist. The application, payment, and the physician/optometrist letter, which must be on the physician's or optometrist's letterhead, must be mailed directly from the medical office to the Department of Public Safety, Office of Professional Standards.
The physician’s or optometrist’s letter must explain why the medical reason for requesting a window tint exemption is a condition that can only be addressed by a 9% reduction of visible light, not ultraviolet light (UVA or UVB). The applicant is required to grant permission to their physician/optometrist to discuss the specified medical condition with the Department of Public Safety, Office of Professional Standards, in case further clarification is required. Conditions that can be addressed through the use of protective eyewear (prescription or non-prescription), or the use of window tint within legal limits that block 99.9% of UV light, are not eligible for a window tint exemption. In addition, conditions that may occur due to family history are not eligible for a window tint exemption.
NOTE: It is a felony to knowingly make any false or fictitious statement on an application for, or within documentation supporting, a window tint medical exemption. Violators will be subject to criminal prosecution under the laws of this state.
