How to complain about a private optical service
Complain directly to the optician
If you have received optical services privately you should consider making a complaint directly to the optician (optometrist or dispensing optician), in the first instance.
CORU is the registration and regulatory body for opticians (optometrists and dispensing opticians).
Opthamologists are doctors who are regulated by the Medical Council.
In cases where you feel there has been professional misconduct, you should refer your case to the Medical Council. The Medical Council is the regulator for all doctors working in Ireland, including doctors in hospitals.
