May Madness

Free eye tests for all Medical Card Holders and remember that there are more people entitled to a Free eye test under their PPS number, due to changes made in the last budget, for the self employed and their spouses.

Remember that our Kingscourt practice has amalgamated with our Bailieborough practice and we are open for appointments Monday to Saturday, with a late night Thursday for your convenience.

We wish you all a very Happy Easter!

We will be closing on Good Friday at 3.00pm and because Easter Monday is a Bank Holiday – we always close on the Saturday before a bank holiday Monday, we will be back in business on Tuesday at 10.00am.

We hope you have a good weekend!

If you have a real emergency with your eyes, please call Ian, who lives in a place with poor signal, but leave a message!


Free eye tests for more!

The Department of Social Protection has announced that Optical Benefit will be introduced for self employed people from the 27th of March.

Those that pay a class S contribution, and their dependent spouses can now claim for optical, dental and medical appliance benefits.

This is the first time that the self employed are included in this scheme, which until then was only for PAYE Employees.

Conditions still apply – you need to have made enough payments – usually over the last 5 tax years.

To see if you or your spouse is eligible, just call us with your name and PPS number – we can email the request to the Departments, and usually receive a response the same or next day.

Usually you would be entitled to an eye exam every two years under the scheme, but earlier tests can be done if there is a clinical justification.

A Christmas Tree

Christmas Opening Hours


As usual we will be taking a few days off over the festive season – we need a break, but also we cannot receive any deliveries in those 10 days – most of our suppliers use an overnight courier service, which delivers to a premises in Kingscourt, in the middle of the night – if that business is closed, we cannot get in to collect our deliveries!

Both practices will be closing at 5.30pm on Friday 23rd and will be closed until the new year.

Both practices will reopen on Tuesday January 3rd.


We would like to wish all our clients a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Ian, Neasa and Sandra (and Victoria)

Order your contacts – NOW we would suggest?

Christmas comes once a year, but it always seems to catch a few of us unawares – me included!

Every year we have a client or two who leaves their contact lens order too late to be delivered before the holidays. We do try to order lenses preemptively for our regular clients, but there are those who wear lenses infrequently, but more over the party season.


Don’t let it be you- call us today!
