Mr Hassan Javed
Expert in Optometry
BSc (Hons), MCOptom, Prof Cert Med Ret, Prof Cert LV.
Since graduating I have worked in a whole range of sectors within Optometry. Commencing my Pre-Registration Period with Boots Opticians I completed registration at an Independent Practice. Therein I became the Lead Optometrist involved in enhance services such as Orthokeratology, Myopia control, MECs, Glaucoma refinement and OHT monitoring.
I then worked at a private highly reputed Ophthalmology provider and have since developed extensive clinical knowledge surrounding cataract surgery, providing pre and post-operative care, managing complications and dealing with complex cataract cases, often requiring vitreo-retinal management. Working alongside a wide range of surgeons with different sub-specialties in Ophthalmology has helped broaden my knowledge. I have also practiced in a range of environments across the country as a Locum Optometrist undertaking routine and general eye care services allowing me a broad experience of optometric practice.
I currently work part time in Private Ophthalmology and recently undertook a community role working at an Independent Practice. I am experienced in routine and enhanced eye care, contact lens fitting and aftercare, Minor Eye Conditions Services (MECS) and Ocular Coherence Tomography Interpretation (trained by Heidelberg). I have a keen interest in medical retina and have attended numerous courses and training seminars to broaden my skills. I am a committee member on the Rotherham and Barnsley LOC. Additionally I am studying Advanced Clinical Optometry at the University of Ulster. I have obtained Professional Certificates in Medical Retina and Low vision, and am due to complete my Independent Prescribing course. I have also completed the WOPEC accredited courses in Cataract, Glaucoma refinement and MECS.
I am a Bond Solon trained Expert witness with a keen interest in Medico-legal cases.
