Huge support

The Department of Ophthalmology

Earlier this year, Specsavers presented Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin with a cheque for €120,000 and announced that it would be extending its commitment to the hospital by pledging to raise an additional €100,000 for the ophthalmology unit. The service provides care to children suffering from common eye conditions, such as squints, which if left untreated can result in sight problems. In addition, the service offers evaluation and treatment of other complex eye conditions such as congenital cataract, congenital glaucoma and visual problems associated with neurological disease.

Fundraising efforts

The team at Specsavers Tallaght will continue their fundraising efforts for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin throughout the year. The store would like to thank the local community for their unwavering support and encourages customers to keep an eye out in store and online for upcoming events.
