For many years I was using contact lenses, but these were no longer good for me. I considered LASIK on my eyes. As I am an experienced eye surgeon myself, I had to consider, where I should visit to perform the procedure.
As I have known Dr Arthur Cummings and the Wellington Eye Clinic for many years, I decided to visit Dr Cummings. His excellence, his warm-hearted art, his attitude to perfection are well known and convinced me to give my eyes to his hands. Also, his staff and colleague are so kind and care about absolutely everything, that I just felt like visiting my family rather than a clinic.
The procedure lead to a perfect result. Today for more than 40 years it is the first time, that I am able to look at my environment without any prosthesis. It is an overwhelming experience, and still after a week I sit down and only enjoy looking – at everything: I do not read the newspaper, but look at the contrasts changing on the paper in the light and those little particles in the material. It was three days after LASIK that I could do my work as a microsurgeon again, everything worked perfectly.
As a result, I am convinced, the Wellington Eye Clinic and Dr Arthur Cummings are clearly recommended.

In researching Laser Eye Surgery The Wellington Eye Clinic is the name that was mentioned to me again and again by Opticians, Ophthalmologists and even competing Laser Clinics as the foremost practice in Ireland. 3 months on, I have successfully corrected my stigmatism thanks to their expertise, and am enjoying 20/20 vision for the first time in my life. Whether the surgery could be done elsewhere is debatable but what was most impressive was the level of personal care I received was second to none, throughout what can be nervous process. From the first contact I never felt in any doubt as to where I stood, the sequence of events, and ultimately what the outcome would be. This continued on meeting my Surgeon Dr Cummings, my Ophthalmologist Claire, Maria and Christine and all the staff. I have already recommended the Wellington Eye Clinic to family and friends and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks again for everything
I visited many clinics before my decision to go go with the Wellington eye clinic. The staff there were very friendly and I was very impressed with how professional Mr Richard Corkin was. Everything was explained properly and I wasn’t asked to decide to pay more for different procedures. I had complete confidence in him and all the staff there. I was delighted with how kind everyone was and I too received the text to ask me how I was later the same day. I just never got around to replying! But I’d recommend this clinic to anyone considering procedures.
Ursula Sweeney, Blanchardstown
Thank you so much Dr Arthur Cummings. My result has been excellent, it is just a miracle, I now have very good sight without specs. The care and kindness which I received was excellent. There is no room for improvement at your clinic. All of the staff are superb. I can highly recommend the Wellington Eye Clinic to anyone. Thank you all so much.
Maureen Gleeson, Thurles, Co. Tipperary
Excellent experience. Friendly and helpful staff instilled confidence all the way. I have and will continue to recommend the Wellington Eye Clinic to anyone.
Tiarnan O’Rourke, Rathgar, Dublin 6
I found the Wellington Eye Clinic to be very professional and efficient. Everything was explained in detail prior to my surgery by my surgeon Mr Richard Corkin and his folow up care after surgery has been excellent.
Jim McGuire, Clondalkin Dublin 22
A text was sent to me by the doctor who operated on me the night of my operation. I found this really thoughtful and it also made me feel as if a pesonal interest was being taken in my well being. In general I found staff and facilities excellent. Staff were excellent in the way they explained the proedures and what was entailed in the recovery process.
Jeremy Hoare, Foxrock, Dublin 18
Service is fantastic!! Thank you!!
Jason Redford, Delgany Co Wicklow
I would definitely recommend it. I found it very reassuring that I could contact someone at all times. I was very well informed of the procedure and the risks involved.
Eamonn Mernagh, Protobello, Dublin 8
Very comfortable atmosphere with wonderful friendly staff. At no time did I feel that I was just another patient. The care and kindness shown were second to none. Well done to all the staff at the Wellington Clinic.
Catherine Gorey, Rathangan
I was extremely happy with the service I received at your clinic. I felt relaxed and comfortable there at all times. M concerns were taken seriously, I was given plenty of advice and the whole experience was a positive one.
Claire O’Mahony, Crookstown Co Cork
Of all the clinics that I researched before my operation I found the staff, from reception through to surgeons to be the most helpful and informative. At 53 I needed reading and distance glasses. NOT any more, thanks to monovision. It’s fantastic!
Graeme Armstrong Inchicore Dublin 8
Very simply my laser surgery has changed my life. Not wearing glasses is so liberating.
Anna Bergin, Ballybrophy Co Laois
The care was fantastic, the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Niamh O’Sullivan, Beaumont Dublin 9
I thought the whole experience was wonderful. At no time did I feel uncomfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I am thrilled with the results and would have no problem in recomending the Wellington to anyone.
Pauline Cooney, Loughrea, Co Galway
I decided on the clinic at the Beacon because (comparing it to another clinic where I had a consultation) the clinic was cleaner, no waiting time, the price was what it said and no pressure. I was very impressed and delighted with my new sight. Thank you Dr Cummings.
Ann Daly, Wicklow, Co Wicklow
I would highly recommend the Wellington Eye Clinic to anyone considering laser eye surgery. Dr Cummings is an excellent eye specialist and made sure I was always comfortable and he explained things so clearly to me. I now have 20:20 vision and it really is truely amazing.
Maura Feeney, Ratoath Co Meath
From start to finish, my experience was amazing. I have since completed a yacht engineering course and am starting a job on a liveaboard dive yacht in Sulawesi Indonesia as a dive instructor / engineer. Brilliant! Every morning I wake up and giggle at the fact that I can see! Thanks so much.
Jamie Farrington, Ballymore Eustace Co Kildare.
I believe that every aspect of my examination, procedure and recovery were extremely well thought out, peformed and catered for.
Darren Kelly, Athlone, Co Westmeath

Mrs Eileen Coletta, Drogheda, Co Louth
The Wellington Clinic gave me confidence and the miracle of sight without specs. Thank you!
Leonore Rothwell-O’Kane, Sandyford Dublin 16
I was a very nervous patient, have been to many rival laser eye clinics before I came to Wellington and was never comfortable with any of them to go ahead. I feel lke a new person. My eyesight is perfect beyond what I could have hoped for, the staff were lovely and helpful, surgery was 99% pain free, aftercare was again very informativ, so I cannot think of any reason how my experience could improve! My life has improved thanks to my perfect eyesight. I have nothing but praise for the staff and service of the Wellington.
Michelle Danaher, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim
There is little room for improvement. As a former senior executive with a large laser eye company in the USA I have very in-depth knowledge of the procedure and how it works.The Wellington Eye Clinic met all my expectations. After reserching all clinics in Ireland, WEC was one of very few I had the upmost confidence in.
Tom Finn, St Mullins, Co Carlow
Felt like we were given very personalised treatment. Admin staff very friendly and willing to accommodate. Clinicians very thourough, friendly and smiling – put us at ease. Lovely rapport among staff.
John Fitzpatrick, Mount Nugent Co. Cavan
I was completely happy with my visits to the clinic.
Thomas Byrne, Portalington Co. Offaly
I am very pleased with the result and after surgery care. The organisation in the clinic is very efficient and the receptionists very helpful with giving many options for scheduling the pre – and – post-surgery appointments.
Magda Sambor, Galloping Green, Stillorgan Co Dublin
I felt the care and treatment I received was excellent and the results have been fantastic. Many thanks!
Susan Boyd, Lucan Co.Dublin
The staff were super friendly and really put me at ease. It was over before I knew it. 6 months after surgery I’ve forgotten that I’ve ever needed glasses/contact lens in the past! Climbing Kilimanjaro next month, will be enough of a challenge without having to bring contact lens and solution with me!
Tracey Roche, Newport, Co.Tipperary
I think the clinic does a very good job and is well run. Would gladly recommend.
Donnacha Hurley, Portalington Co Laois
Excellent service. Thank you very much. Everyone was very friendly and put you at ease. The nurse who prepared me for surgery was particularly nice and eased any nerves.
Derek Henry, Balgriffin, Dublin 13
I was very impressed with Dr Arthur Cummings and all his staff at the clinic. I have recommended the clinic highly to my friends and keep up the good work for the future.
Brian Lennon, Athlone Co Westmeath
I was very impressed from the first contact over the phone to my most recent visit with everyone I came in contact with. Everything was explained in a clear concise fashion and all my questions were answered, which put me right at my ease. The procedure went very well and I cannot recommend enough to family and friends laser eye treatment and the Wellington Eye Clinic.
Christine Woods, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14
My experience was completely satisfactory and I have no problem in recommending them to my family and friends.
Michael O’Reilly, Blessington Co Wicklow
I had considered laser surgery for years, but was very nervous. The staff were excellent at put me at ease. The best thing about Wellington was the after care. It is the biggest difference between this clinic and other clinics – especially the fact that enhancement surgery is free.
Rita Murphy, Coolkenno, Co Carlow
I found the treatment and every aspect of the service second to none. I felt fully informed every step of the way and would highly recommend the Wellington Eye Clinic to anyone considering treatment.
Alison Hobson-Shaw, Rathmines Dublin 6
Excellent service, information and results. Very professional, very happy, after care very good. Very efficient.
John Gavigan, Naas Co.Kildare
From start to finish – I don’t think I could have had a better experience. I was made feel so comfortable and at ease at all times. No question was too “silly”. Laser surgery was the best decision I have made in a long time. Many thanks to all involved.
Susan Graham, Foxford Co.Mayo
I was very happy with the whole experience and have no hesitation in recommending the Wellington Eye Clinic. Although more expensive than other options – it’s well worth the extra.
Catherine Byers, Glenageary Co Dublin
Exceptional service and attention to detail. My surgery was complicated given my history of a squint and suppression. So far so good!
Cormac Doyle, Rathdrum Co.Wicklow
I have been thinking about this procedure for the past 10-20 years and I am only sorry I didn’t have it done then as the quality of life is much improved. The treatment was a lot better than reading about it. I would highly recommend Dr Corkin and AnnMarie.
Elizabeth Connell, Blackrock Co Dublin
I would highly recommend the Wellington Eye Clinic to anyone considering laser eye surgery. Dr Cummings is an excellent eye specialist and made sure I was always comfortable and he explained things so clearly to me. I now have 20/20 vision and it really is truly amazing.
Maire Ni Fheinidh, Ratoath, Co Meath
I don’t think there is any way the service could be improved. I was very pleased with the service I received. The procedure went well and all in all I think it was worth the money I paid.
Emma Deenihan, Tralee, Co.Kerry
I am thrilled with the way my eyesight has been returned to perfection! It is so great to be able to play with my baby without him knocking off my glases and I can give him a proper cuddle.
June Neylon, Cavan Co Cavan
I liked the text from Dr Corkin on the evening of my surgery. It was comforting to know that I could contact him at any time if I was worried. Thanks for making the expeience relatively stress-free.
Caroline Murphy, Palatine Co Carlow
Very impressed. Impressive improvement in quality of life.
