I have worked in this industry for over 20 years, customers want professional expert eyecare, quality stylish frames, great styling advice & an aftercare service that they can rely on. That is what we are all about here at Horizon.

At Horizon Optical, we have hand-picked all of our styles to suit different face shapes & skin tones, most of which are sourced from Italian fashion houses. The quality is unrivalled & styles are ever changing. We source new eyewear regularly which allows us to keep things fresh & unique which we know is something some customers really love - finding their own individual style that no one else (or very few) will be wearing also.

Among the big brand names, we stock eco-conscious brands, made from recycled materials ..... people want to help the planet & we can do this without compromising the look, feel & quality which aligns with where we want to be as a responsible optical provider.

Once you have chosen your new frame style we will take your measurements to tailor your lenses precisely to optimise your vision and comfort when wearing your new specs. We have a broad range of lenses to meet your needs. We source our lenses from high quality manufacturers like Essilor, Zeiss, Hoya & LR Precision who are based here in Ennis.

I was just in this morning and it was the best optical service I have experienced in Ennis in the many years I have been here. The staff were absolutely lovely and informative. The service was quick. I was shocked how quickly I was seen when I had previously always waited a long time at the other place I had frequented for years. Horizon has gained a new regular customer!

I cannot recommend Horizon Optical enough!! I called today mid afternoon for an eye exam that I needed yesterday. They squeezed me in according to when I could get there. Once there the receptionist and optometrist (Ruth Nolan) were professional, welcoming, patient, polite and informative. Would definitely return for all my eye needs!

Absolutely amazing service and definately accommodating. Staff are super helpful and friendly and assisted immediately as I needed an urgent eye test done for my driver licence on such short notice. Will highly recommend this establishment. Please support them as you won't get better service anywhere else in Ennis Town.

If you want a highly professional yet caring and personalised approach to your eye care look no further than this locally owned optician.I discovered that Horizon Optical Ennis are not only a great place to buy your spectacles but their after sales care is excellent too. On Easter Saturday, without an appointment and no charge, Rosaleen and Ruth the optometrist examined my eyes using their advanced ophthalmic equipment, diagnosed a retinal medical condition, referred me to hospital A& E straightaway. I cannot thank them enough for their medical expertise, as I had to have emergency laser treatment to mend an eyesight threatening retinal tear.I should have given them a glowing review last November when I had my first eye test and purchased spectacles from Rosaleen – the owner and experienced registered dispensing optician ; who alongside Tonia gave me individual attention in selecting from their range of stylish frames – which incidentally are no more expensive than the franchised optician chain stores - but without the pressurised selling techniques and misleading incentives like ‘free eye tests’ – which all people paying PRSI are entitled to from any Irish optician.When choosing spectacles, I found the natural light flooding the bright and airy shop interior makes seeing yourself and choosing frames to suit beneficial too. The premises, examination rooms and optical equipment are always pristine and clean.I am so impressed I would give them 6 stars!

Excellent customer service from very professional, friendly staff, huge range of frames to choose from so really appreciated the hour long appointment as it allowed plenty of time to try on and decide on frames, staff so helpful and experienced at recommending frames to suit. Would highly recommend Horizon Optical.

I recently visited Horizon Optical for a contact lens consultation and I could not have been happier with my experience. Ruth and Tonia were very patient with me during my visit, and put me at ease while showing me how to put in and take out the lenses.The shop itself is lovely too and I noticed they have a wide variety of frames, so the next time I'm getting glasses I'll definitely pop in to them.Thank you again for your help!
