What is an independent optician?

Independent opticians are usually smaller, local practices that may have just one or a few clinics in the area. An independent optician typically serves the local community with professional eye care services and great brands, and you will usually see the same optometrist each time. In this way, your local optician can get to know you much better, and vice versa. This can result in a much more personal service for the whole family.

Can you get an PRSI eye test?

PRSI eye test in Ireland, is free but only available for those who meet certain criteria.

To qualify for a free PRSI eye test, you must have paid Class A, E, P, H or S social insurance contributions. The amount of social insurance you need depends on your age. There are a minimum number of paid contributions for different age brackets.

If you aren’t eligible for a free PRSI eye test, you must pay your optician for an eye examination. This is sometimes known as a private optician. Most practices will have an eye care plan that makes it easier for you to access the right eye care.

Alternatively, you will find contact details for the optician if you wish to call them to learn more about their services.
