VIEW ALLWhat Our Patients Say

Being of a nervous disposition, I was dreading having someone examine my eyes. On speaking to my optician, I asked him if he could recommend an Ophthalmic Surgeon to help me with my Glaucoma and cataracts. Without hesitation he recommended Mr. Golchin. On meeting Mr. Golchin I was immediately put at ease. He examined my eyes and explained the problems with them and what treatment he was going to do. I am delighted with the treatment I have received from Mr. Golchin and his very friendly and helpful staff at Cork Eye Clinic. I would highly recommend that you visit them.
