Independent Prescribing

Independent Prescribing enables optometrists to clinically assess a patient, establish a diagnosis, determine the clinical management required and prescribe where necessary.

First Optic is the only branch of optometrists on Brecon that are licensed.

A qualified Independent Prescriber may prescribe any licensed medicine (except for controlled drugs or medicines for parenteral (injected) administration) for conditions affecting the eye, and the tissues surrounding the eye, within their recognised area of expertise and competence.

They are able to prescribe privately and, where suitable arrangements have been made, write an NHS prescription.
