Independent Prescribing Optometrist

providing the best clinical care

At John Forbes Opticians we strive to provide the best clinical care we possible. A number of our optometrists now are able to prescribe medicines for a large number of eye condition.

We can prescribe drops, creams, ointments and tablets when necessary. Your optometrist is now the first place to go if you have eye problems and works with your General Practitioner and the local eye department.

Independent prescribing optometrists have undertaken postgraduate training, attended hospital training sessions under the supervision of a senior consultant ophthalmologist and passed examination by the college of optometrists.
