Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has the required number of PRSI contributions paid to qualify for the treatment benefits scheme. As a result she will be entitled to a free optical examination and a contribution towards the cost of Optical appliances. She should contact her Optician who will make the application on her behalf and provide her with the necessary treatment that she requires.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
