VIEW ALLWhat Our Patients Say

After visiting you last Thursday I started applying your prescription drops and ointment 6 nights ago. I have had wonderful results! I am sleeping comfortably for the first time in years. As you know I had been waking very frequently - up to 5 times, with extremely dry eyes, which was distressing and painful. This is like a miracle for me. I now have hope for the future and thank you most sincerely for your diagnosis, concern and care for my eyes. I wish you and your team every success at the Cork Eye Clinic.
