Our Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians

 

OPTOMETRISTS

Our optometrists (ophthalmic opticians) are registered with the Opticians Board (Bord Na Radharcmhast) and are expert refractionists who prescribe and fit both glasses and contact lenses. They work in close conjunction with our medical eye doctors and are experienced in identifying abnormal ocular conditions.

You can be examined by one of out optometrists for no charge when using your HSE Medical Card or the Department of Social Protection’s Optical Benefit Scheme. All our optometrists specialise in contact lens fitting and can recommend the best type of contact lenses for your eyes. Our optometrists also carry out field testing, laser scanning polarimetry for glaucoma, OCT for macular degeneration (AMD) and photography.

If you have something significantly wrong with your eyes they will refer you to one of our medical eye doctors (ophthalmologists).
