SERVICE DETAIL

Some of our optometrists are therapeutically qualified, which means they can prescribe topical medications for eye infections and inflammation.

Our therapeutically endorsed optometrists are able to:

  • Examine the anterior eye to facilitate management of patients presenting with red eye or other symptoms
  • Manage ocular emergencies
  • Provide primary care and treatment for ocular conditions such as dry eye and allergy
  • Treat patients with glaucoma in co-management with ophthalmologists
  • Examine patients for signs of ocular disease, including superficial infection and anterior eye disease, and where necessary, treat these patients or refer them for specialist ophthalmological assessment
