What Form of Post-Operative Care is Given?

What Level of Care Will I Receive?

Founded and directed by Professor Johnny Moore, Cathedral Eye Clinic was established in 2008 with the clear objective of serving as Ireland’s premier centre of ophthalmic (eyecare) excellence, offering a world-class, unrivalled patient experience with Quality Care, Clinical Excellence & Patient Safety as key tenets. Our facilities offer a variety of expert eye treatments which can provide patients with total freedom from glasses and we are proud to be the only healthcare company on the island of Ireland to offer the revolutionary ReLEx VisuMax SMILE laser eye treatment. At Cathedral Eye Clinic, we believe in raising the bar in the pursuit of medical excellence and as well as laser refractive surgery, our surgical specialty focuses on cataract treatment, ocular surface reconstruction, retinal treatment, oculoplastics and other forms of intra-ocular eye surgery.

Aside from striving to achieve 20/20 vision for each of our valued patients, Cathedral Eye Clinic continues to offer valuable contributions in the field, spearheading clinical research, innovation in clinical practice and presenting at some of the world’s ophthalmic conferences and events. For example, Clinical Director, Prof Johnny Moore, was recently amongst specialist dignitaries invited to present and perform live surgery at the 2019 West Lake International Congress of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in Hangzhou, China (see Facebook for more details and pictures).
