Does Stephen Hannan have any specialist qualifications in the management of dry eye?

Does he have an MSc in clinical optometry?

Is he a Fellow of the College of Optometrists?

Does Hannan have a PHD?

Has he ever worked anywhere other than OE?

I am answering questions to help those who have and are suffering from OE's neglect so I can possibly make up for my own part in this while I was working there.

To have Eyedoc question why I am doing this has actually saddened me as I am trying to make amends for my contribution to patients suffering

That Sasha has come so far shows me this fight is a long and tedious one, but I know she is more than up for it

So keep posting your questions and I'll help keep the fight fair with whatever knowledge I can offer.

And keep fighting 'til Moulsdale is broken!!!

I know how DLK is treated and I know that OE optoms pass it off as dry eye as unlike you I did work in the business. A patient who is worried about their symptoms will readily believe it is a small issue rather than something more serious because they have put their trust in these people

Yes most are GPs, and yes you do have to do further training, but not 4-7 years. If they go abroad to train (e.g. Holland) it's only one extra year

At the moment you don't have to be on the Specialist Register to perform Laser Eye Surgery (maybe the GMC needs to get their act together on this), but you do need to be on the Specialist Register to perform cataract surgery and/or RLE.

Yes you are right, but I was not asked about RLE, I was referring to laser surgery

Eyedoc not OE wrote: No-one got into Ophthalmology by accident and £2000 a day is actually way below par for a successful private practice in the UK

Yes it is below the private practice rates, but OE surgeons can earn £2000 for the number of eyes they treat in a day, with no overheads like wages, rent, equipment, so often earn a lot more than those in private practice.

No I don't, but I have seen the horror cases and heard the stories first hand

Let me ask you a question - have you ever blinded a patient in one eye through negligence, like a certain OE surgeon did?

If only Optical Express "Sales counsellors” and optoms understood this, and telesales staff too!

Oh please! The patient believes whatever they're told by the man in the white coat: "Touch of dry eye, use these drops and you'll be fine!"

Many overseas surgeons are unable to get into private/NHS practice in the UK because they don’t have sufficient qualifications. £2k a day is a lot of money for doctors who might otherwise be unemployed, or twiddling their thumbs in their own country where that amount of money is only a dream!

Eyedoc not OE wrote: • Finally, it is very easy, but quite cavalier, to pass judgement on a surgeon's abilities ("I have often seen where a surgeon had no idea what the problem was") when you don't have the necessary medical knowledge

I don’t need any medical knowledge (although unfortunately I now have more than I ever wanted) to know my eyes are irreparably damaged, and I reserve the right to "pass judgment" on the doctor who did this to me.

I suggest it's more "cavalier” - and criminal - to take risks with a person's eyesight, their most precious sense!

I can give you list of OE surgeons who've told their damaged patients they have no idea what the problem is, including IMAB Clinical Director Prof Jan Venter.

Incidentally, if you’re so confident about your claims why hide behind anonymity - I’m Sasha Rodoy, who are you?

There are 25 treatment weeks a year with approx 60 px each week and roughly 100 a year had retreatment with at least another 100 refusing because of fear
