Our Partner in Eye Care

Our ophthalmology service is committed to improving patients’ quality of life through the preservation and restoration of vision. We offer personalised care delivered by a team of highly-skilled experts who regularly use innovative techniques, the latest therapies, and state-of-the-art equipment.

At UPMC Kildare Hospital, our team is comprised of ophthalmologists and optometrists from the Institute of Eye Surgery. Sub-specialists from the IOES focus their practice exclusively on a specific area of expertise, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, or glaucoma. As a result, they are highly skilled at treating minor ophthalmologic conditions to the most complicated diagnoses. They also are often involved in the development of new treatments and innovations in eye care.

A First for Ireland in
Ophthalmology Care

IOES consultants at UPMC Kildare Hospital, including Prof. Michael O’Keeffe, FRCS, FRCSE, (pictured), are the first in Ireland to invest in the revolutionary Ziemer Z8 laser. The device can be used for refractive laser eye surgery, laser cataract surgery, and therapeutic procedures.

Designed to be less invasive and more precise than traditional devices, the Ziemer Z8 provides patients with a more comfortable experience and improved results following their procedure. This innovative technology will soon be implemented at our U.S. locations, including the UPMC Eye Center in Pittsburgh.
