What is an Independent Prescribing Optometrists?

Our Optometrist, Mohammed Hafejee is an Independent Prescribing Optometrist following the successful completion of the College of Optometrists Diploma in Independent Prescribing and Therapeutics.

This higher qualification allows Mo to quickly and appropriately manage many eye conditions that you may have previously needed to be dealt with by your GP or by an eye doctor in A&E. For Dry Eye Sufferers this means any prescription only medication or tablet can now be prescribed privately without the long hospital/GP referral wait times.
