Specsavers Ireland took on a pledge in 2014 to raise €100,000 for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, with the total funds raised to date exceeding €107,000.

The Department of Ophthalmology

Specsavers’ fundraising focus is on eye care with the money raised by stores and employees going towards the development of The Department of Ophthalmology, which typically diagnoses and treats over 10,000 patients annually, making it one of the busiest departments within the hospital.

The service provides care to children suffering from common eye conditions, such as squints, which if left untreated can result in sight problems.
