487

NEW outpatient and day case services are now available at Nenagh Hospital with the opening of the Eye Suite.  Located in the €1.5 million outpatients extension and building on the designation of Nenagh as a centre for cataract surgery this new development means patients can for the first time have their eye injections in Nenagh.

The new service in Nenagh is led by consultant ophthalmologist Mr Conall Hurley. New treatments available to adult patients in Nenagh include intra-vitreal injections (i.e. IVTs) for conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusions and wet age-related macular degeneration. The new suite is also equipped with a range of modern ophthalmic lasers for the treatment of post cataract surgery capsular changes, retinal vascular diseases and uncontrolled glaucoma. The existing cataract surgery service will continue in Nenagh.

Since 2018, almost 5,000 patients have had their cataract surgery performed in Nenagh.
