Optical Express to create 60 new jobs in Ireland

Optical Express has announced that it will open three new locations in Cork, Dublin and Galway in the next 12 months, creating up to 60 jobs.

With an additional investment of €10 million, this will bring the number of Irish operations to six.

Dr Steve Schallhorn, chief medical director at Optical Express, said: “As Europe's number one provider of laser eye surgery, our €10 million investment in Ireland offers increased convenience for patients booking surgery and for their pre and post operative appointments.

“The new surgery treatment centres will have on-site ophthalmic surgeons, refractive trained optometrists and patient counsellors who are dedicated to providing the highest levels of clinical care in our state-of-the-art facilities”.

Optical Express currently operates out of Wellington Road in Dublin, Whitewater Shopping Centre in Kildare and Mahon Point in Cork.
