Vol. 288 No. 4

Written Answers. - Reading Glasses Application.


Mr. Kitt

asked the Minister for Health when a person (name supplied) in County Galway, who applied for reading glasses almost three months ago, will receive them.

The provision of ophthalmic treatment in this case is a matter for the Western Health Board. I am advised by the board that the person concerned will be called for eye examination early in March. Glasses, if prescribed, would normally be available within two to three weeks following the eye examination.
