Covid-19 Update – Eye Surgery Consultations Can Now Be Scheduled in Republic of Ireland

Based on the latest advice, we are pleased to confirm that we are now carrying out consultations and refractive surgery at our clinics across the Republic of Ireland.

Consultations in our clinics can be booked online here:

At Optical Express our first priority is the safety of our patients and employees. We are continuing to closely follow advice from the Irish government, public health bodies and regulators in relation to Coronavirus.

We have further enhanced our robust protocols and procedures and will be following strict hygiene and safety guidelines. We have a number of measures in place to ensure our patients and our employees are safe in our clinics at all times, including social distancing and the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). On this basis, our experienced clinical teams are ready to welcome patients and assist you on taking the next step of your life-changing eye surgery journey.
