Ophthalmology

Gilabbey has offered a referral ophthalmology service for several years. We now routinely see patients from all over the South of Ireland.

In addition to the routine ophthalmic examination techniques of close and distant direct ophthalmoscopy, indirect ophthalmoscopy, slit-lamp biomicroscopy and tonometry (rebound or applanation), other more advanced diagnostic techniques such as gonioscopy, and ocular ultrasonography are in everyday use.

Patients undergoing eye surgery benefit from the availability within the practice of such items as our high specification Zeiss operating microscope, top quality microsurgical instrumentation, and a considerable range of other specialised ophthalmic surgical equipment.

Our ophthalmologist has a broad spectrum of interests in both medical and surgical eye conditions, such as eyelid disorders and reconstructive lid surgery, glaucoma management, investigation and treatment of ocular inflammatory disease, sudden onset blindness/SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome), corneal sequestrum and corneal grafting procedures for the management of corneal ulcers and other disorders of the cornea, lens luxation and cataracts, and especially in their surgical management by phacoemulsification.
