Social Welfare And Medical Card Entitlements
If you hold a current full medical card you are entitled to a free eye exam at an opticians every two years. As well as this you may select glasses from a standard range at no charge. You must acquire prior approval from your local Health Office. Application forms are available from Cahill Opticians on request. Those with full PRSI can provide us with their PPS number and date of birth. We can check your entitlements on-line and if approved you will be eligible to a free examination and a contribution towards glasses or contact lenses.
This optician is a VHI VSP Network provider and offers a direct payment scheme. Contact us for more details.
