Eye World has been on Market Lane in Westport since December 2005 and our original founder, Clodagh McGovern, is still leading the team here.
Within a year of establishing the business, Eye World was the first practice in Ireland to go paperless, and a decade later we became one of the first to implement a state-of-the-art OCT machine which allows our optometrists to see beyond the surface of the eye.
Clodagh and the team have continued to update and modernise the practice throughout the years, including installing a kids room, free Wi-Fi, and introducing online booking in 2017.
Throughout the pandemic, we have still served patients and maintained our commitment to the community throughout, providing a telehealth service so you could have a remote consultation with your optometrist over the phone when routine appointments were halted.
Optometrist and director Clodagh McGovern said: “When I set up Eye World, I had a vision to eliminate mediocracy within the industry. Our aim was always to have a practice that excelled in technology, use the latest up-to-date equipment and supply the best quality stylish frames and sunglasses in a clinical environment.
“All of us have done our best to become a great team and deliver the best customer service and care; this has not happened overnight and it started with weekly team meetings and constant engagement and understanding of each other.
