    I can't thank Mr Horgan and his team enough, I had multi focal lens replacement to allow me to be glasses free, right from my very first appointment Mr. Horgan, Lorraine & Anne were amazing. They were friendly, professional, communicative, talked me through my surgery clearly, followed up with phone calls after surgery and was great during the follow up appointments. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Horgan.

    Firstly I would like to thank Mr. Horgan for his care and professionalism together with his team especially the anaesthetist who explained everything that would be happening . I would definitely recommend Mr. Horgan to friends who needed any particular eye care/operation. I have very recently had my second cataract operation and was surprised that by day 4 my eye was back to normal and not bloodshot. It is amazing what you can see with good eyesight. I am amazed at how I can read small print without glasses although will be needing them for reading only. Excellent after care. Thank you.

The depth and clarity of explanation regarding every aspect of the process before, during and after the treatment was outstanding. The results exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone considering serious eye treatment.

    The cataract in my left eye was operated on by another ophthalmologist in a different hospital, after which I had weeks of very unpleasant irritation. Eventually, it calmed down and I went to consult Mr Horgan about the developing cataract in the right eye. He explained why the irritation had occurred in the left eye and assured me that it would not happen again. He was right: after his surgery on my right eye, I had no pain, discomfort or irritation. A completely different outcome and an excellent result. My thanks to Mr Horgan and his team.
