Why we are different ? 

Because we spend time with our patients:

Everyone is different. Different eye problems , needs , questions and expectations. Not everyone fits into a 15 minute time slot. So at Rods & Cones we are different too.

The basis of quality eyecare is a thorough eye exam . A thorough eye exam can not be done in 15 minutes or often even 20 minutes.

We offer 45 Minute consultation times for all our patients – which is twice and often 3 times the time allotted in larger multiples. This ensures you are relaxed during your exam and that you have the time to raise any queries about your ocular health, and that we have the time to explain our answers in a comprehensive manner.

Visual problems with your new glasses are often as a result of a hurried refraction during an eye exam or a measurement error during a rushed dispense when choosing your glasses.

We take the time to get it right , to double and triple check your prescription before you leave and explain our recommendations to you and what you should be using your glasses for.


Because we offer a personal service and individual attention:

At Rods & Cones we will guide you through the various frame and lens options available to you. We will explain the cost of every item and explain the benefits of one product over another.

You will nearly always see the same optician on every visit, and you can specifically request to see the optician of your choice at any time.

If you have any issues with any spectacles you purchase, we are here to help. Most problems can be remedied with a simple adjustment to the frame height or the fit. Where other problems arise we guarantee to resolve problems in a timely manner.


We are pleased to offer all our patients:

  • 90 Day Comfort Guarantee on all Varifocals
  • Mininum 12 month manufacturers warranty on all frames ( often extended to 24 months)
  • Lifetime aftercare on any spectacles purchased from the practice for :
    • cleaning
    • re-aligning
    • screw  & nose pad replacement
    • microfiber cloth & case replacement


Because we Buy Irish:

As a fully Irish owned business, registered in Ireland, we are proud to support Irish jobs and the economy by sourcing 90 % of our optical products from these Quality Irish Suppliers.
