“NCBI welcomes the allocation of extra resources to deal with the unacceptable waiting lists for eye surgery. Interventions such as cataract surgery can greatly improve the quality of life of many people.
We are also calling on the government to publish and implement a National Vision Strategy for Ireland that will provide adequate pathways to care for people affected by sight loss, mapping their needs from diagnosis to medical intervention and rehabilitation.”
