The Federation of (Ophthalmic and Dispensing) Opticians Ireland represents eye care providers and registered opticians in business in the Republic of Ireland.
Our aim is to achieve eye health for all, delivered through world-class services, provided by regulated community-based professionals operating in a competitive environment.
Due to weak or poorly integrated 👁️ care services, many people lack access to routine checks that can detect conditions and lead to the delivery of appropriate preventive care or treatment https://t.co/Cs3B6gnAT3
The burden of 👁 conditions and vision impairment is often far greater in:
🏞️People living in rural areas
🏚️People with low incomes
♿️People with disabilities
It's #WorldSightDay 2019. In Ireland, five people lose their sight each week and over 247,000 children and adults are living with sight loss. We work to represent them and empower them. Join the fight today. Get us to the #cure sooner. #VisionFirst https://t.co/rpFUQ7qOGE https://t.co/QmY06srqiZ
