Cannot recommend Progressive Vision highly enough! The level of service and care is top class! Every member of staff I encountered was a consummate professional. I was seen by optometrist Katie Robb and her knowledge and ability to explain everything was exceptional. She explained all of the options available and I came away fully confident that I had received the best possible care and advice available. Orlette Massey

I have been a patient of Mr Mark Cahill and his staff at Progressive Vision for approximately ten years. I am aged now in my eighties and suffer from Macular degeneration in both my eyes, wet macular degeneration in my right eye and dry macular degeneration in my left eye. Due to my failing eyesight I require an injection in my right eye approximately every month to maintain my normal vision. I also require two reviews annually to ensure the treatment is working properly and my eyesight in either eye is not deteriorating. I have found throughout my treatment the team at Progressive Vision led by Mr Mark Cahill, very friendly and easily approachable, all questions are answered in a clear uncomplicated fashion and readily understood. I am very impressed by the efficiency and cohesion of the team, the advanced technology in use and being able to follow what is happening to my eyes I can recommend Progressive Vision for their overall approach.

I first attended Progressive Vision in Nov.'20. I was put on a course of eye drops to reduce eye pressure before Mr. Cahill carried out cataract removal on both eyes in Jun.'21 and Sept.'21. Subsequently I have attended for post-operation check-up and regular reviews up to the current time. In March this year while in Spain I was diagnosed as having a tear in the retina of my right eye and while the emergency procedure was carried out in a Spanish Hospital, I got wonderful support over the telephone from Progressive Vision. My total experience with Progressive Vision has been superb particularly as I a very nervous patient in medical settings !

I recently had cataracts removed from both eyes by the Progressive Vision team under the leadership of surgeon, Mark Cahill. During the initial examinations and in both operations, what I experienced was a consistently high standard of professionalism and pastoral care. It is commonplace to speak of 'modern miracles', but that is what this particular medical intervention feels like to me, as it restored the 'forty shades of green' that my eyes had simply stopped registering.

What Our Patients Say

I have been a patient of Mr Mark Cahill and his staff at Progressive Vision for approximately ten years. I am in my eighties and suffer from macular degeneration in both eyes, wet AMD in my right eye and dry AMD in my left eye. Due to my failing eyesight I require an injection in my right eye approximately every months to maintain normal vision. I have two reviews annually to ensure the treatment is working properly and my eyesight is not deteriorating.   I have always found the Progressive Vision team very friendly and approachable, all questions are answered clearly. I am very impressed by the efficiency of the team, the advanced technology and I can recommend Progressive Vision for their overall approach.

Carmen Oroz Funes

Mr. Cahill carried out successful cataract removal on both eyes in Jun.’21 and Sept.’21.  In March ’23 while in Spain I needed emergency surgery for a tear in my retina. I got wonderful support over the phone from Progressive Vision. My total experience with Progressive Vision has been superb particularly as I am a very nervous patient in medical settings !

Andrew Flynn

Although its early days after my Valeda treatment for dry AMD, there is more brightness in my vision. I am now able to read numbers on the calendar and on my ipad more clearly, although I read slowly. Previously the writing was blurred so I am very happy with the result.

Caitriona Donnelly

Following my OptiLight treatments, my dry eye symptoms have really eased. Eyedrops were just masking the problem. My eyes are clear now- not red, gritty or streaming water. I’m delighted with the treatment- it was quick and painless and staff were very kind, especially Eve and Hannah.

Niamh Crosbie

While reading the newspaper a few weeks after my Valeda treatment for dry AMD, I thought my right eye, my bad eye felt very comfortable- it had been scratchy and very irritated. The other eye has eased also. I am very happy with the treatment and the staff at the clinic are so kind.

Maire Curtin

I recently had cataracts removed from both eyes under the leadership of surgeon, Mark Cahill. I experienced a consistently high standard of professionalism and pastoral care. It is commonplace to speak of ‘modern miracles’, but that is what this particular medical intervention feels like to me, as it restored the ‘forty shades of green’ that my eyes had simply stopped registering.

Celia G Kenny

Absolutely consummate professionals, friendly and courteous from the first experience at the front desk, through surgery and to the final review. Kind considerate team that ensure you are fully briefed and totally at ease. Great experience and unbelievable results. Thank you.

Adrian O'Dwyer

My treatment regime for macular degeneration has meant eye injections given by Dr Mark Cahill every seven weeks for almost two years now. Thankfully I don’t find it too difficult and my sight is back to normal a few hours after my injection. The staff at the Progressive Vision clinic are exceptionally kind and caring with all their patients. I would like to especially thank Justyna and Ciara.

Pat Shirran

I have been a patient since 2012 when I was diagnosed with a rare retinal disease. Because Mr Mark Cahill diagnosed it so early, I was able to start treatment very quickly and this has saved my sight in both eyes. I am so grateful to Mark and all the team at Progressive Vision for the excellent medical care and attention I receive on each visit. There is no cure but the amazing support from Progressive Vision has made living with this disease much easier.

Orla D

I am so happy to have my cataract operation done at Progressive Vision. The whole process went very smoothly with no pain. My vision has greatly improved. I cannot thank the team enough- I only need to wear my +2 reading glasses now!

Angela Lennon

I’ve been attending Progressive Vision for over seven years- my optician referred me with macular degeneration. Mark Cahill’s kindness and care is second to none. He has a lovely personality, I can ask him anything and talk to him about any issues I have. The clinic is wonderful- I have complete confidence in my eye care.

Dorothy Coghlan

Over eleven years ago I was referred to Dr Mark Cahill as a result of being diagnosed with diabetes and related vision problems. Thanks to Mark and his team I am doing very well with treatments every five or six weeks at the clinic.

Denis Kane

I am very happy with my treatment at Progressive Vision. It is a lovely place, staff are very friendly, helpful and the results are good. I have glaucoma but great treatment means it hasn’t interfered with my life.

Niamh Brophy

I saw my sister go blind with macular degeneration- she now has a white stick which prompted me to get my eyes checked. Macular degeneration started in my left eye, then moved to the right eye. I’ve been getting injections every 6-8 weeks in one eye at a time so I can keep driving and living my life. Dr Mark and his team are very kind and very patient.

Oliver McDonnell

Mark, thank you for being so patient with such a nervous person. Your staff are very kind. I want to praise especially Louise, Sadhbh and Alison. They are exceptional, and thanks also to kind Ciara who was so reassuring.

Jenny Dunne

Great specialists, they make you feel at ease and explain everything logically and in detail so you leave the place confident you’re in good hands. Katie was lovely to me, I’m grateful for the care. It may not be important for everyone, but the place is also beautiful, modern and spotless.

Alexandra Hadzhikidi

Progressive Vision staff are so welcoming. I am very happy with my Valeda treatment for macular degeneration. Dr Morsy was very kind – thank you.
