Eye Examination

During your eye test, your optician will assess your prescription  and advise on any need for glasses.  Following this, the health of your eyes is carefully checked. At Deirdre Cooke Opticians we recommend that you have your eyes examined at least once every two years. 


Based on your eyes, your lifestyle and your visual needs your optician will discuss the lens solutions best suited to you.  Deirdre Cooke Opticians only use quality lenses which will optimise your visual experience.


We are all becoming more aware of the harm UV rays from the sun can do to our eyes.  Deirdre Cooke Opticians keep Sligo's eyes smiling with a wide variety of sunglasses to suit all budgets. These can be bought directly off the shelf or can be glazed with your prescription.



We are authorised Sligo stockists of a wide variety of frames including Miss Sixty, Mexx, Gucci, Esprit, Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, Gant, Lacoste, Elle and Diesel frames.

Safety Eyewear

At Deirdre Cooke Opticians we realise the importance of protecting your eyes from harmful activites - at work and at home.  We can advise on lens and frame suitability for both work activites and hobbies

Contact Lenses


 At Deirdre Cooke Opticians we know the idea of putting something on your eye can be quite daunting. Even if you have tried contact lenses before without success, we are here to gently welcome you to the freedom and flexibility that contact lenses bring.  As a fully independent Sligo based practice, our Optometrists have access to over 80 different contact lens types and will use their skills and experience to find the best product for you.
