Additional qualifications (such as BSc/MSc Optometry degrees from the U.S.) are mainly post graduate qualifications obtained by practitioners who have completed higher studies in Optometry. Only additional qualifications approved by the Board may be listed in the online register-search by members of public.

It is important to note that the Board does not consider the additional qualifications on its own for registration purposes. It will not be displayed in the registration certificate as well.
