Dr Colum Rooney has just completed his Doctorate in Optometry in 2016. Colum has been qualified as an independent speciality prescribing optometrist since 2014. Meaning he is now trained in diagnosing and treating lots of red eye conditions which would normally require a visit to the gp or eye casualty in the hospital. This is a very exciting a new venture for Northern Ireland. Colum will now be able to treat conditions such as, corneal abrasions , foreign body removal, iritis, corneal ulcer, dendritic ulcer ( caused by the herpes virus) as well as allergies and many other conditions.
Clinics are available in both practices in Hillsborough and Lisburn.
