Is your vision troubling you?  Have you been diagnosed with Cataracts?  Would you like free surgery?

It is hard to believe that so many people in Ireland are waiting to see an ophthalmologist to get the treatment that they need now.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO WAIT!  If you are waiting for treatment the only reason you are suffering is because you do not have the money to pay privately. Its expensive.


If you are struggling to read this because your eyesight is impaired, you can… if you wish, get the treatment you are entitled to NOW.

The EU Cross Border Directive – it’s your entitlement!

Most of the enquiries we get are from people that have waited around 2 years, and still wait because they think they have no choice.  The cost of private surgery is way beyond their pockets so their sight is allowed to get a little worse each day.  Their lives and the quality of living each day is diminished.  There is a choice. You do not have to wait.

Easy Booking
