PRESCRIBING PRIVILEGES FOR OPTOMETRISTS
The College has consulted with the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists (SAO) to clarify the prescribing privileges for optometrists. We have replaced the April 2004 version on our Reference Manual. Please read the guidelines here.
Of specific relevance to members is subsection 11.12 of the Optometric Profession Bylaws, which allows qualified optometrists to prescribe and use therapeutic (including oral) agents for the treatment of ocular diseases and abnormal conditions, except for anti-glaucoma agents.
