What is a Prescribing Optometrist?

Claire embarked on extensive post graduate training to qualify as a Prescribing Optometrist. Only a minority of optometrists in the UK can issue prescriptions and treat patients.

With stretched resources, and long waits to receive medical care, it is comforting to know that Claire has the expertise and ability to offer almost immediate help, should you have an eye complaint, or are worried about your vision.

Early treatment is critical to preventing damage to your eyesight. By receiving urgent treatment at Hammond & Dummer, you can avoid waiting for a GP appointment; or a lengthy wait in A&E . If you require hospital intervention, Claire can refer you directly.
