With over 25,000 cataract surgeries to his name, Mr Gerard Kervick is an experienced Ophthalmologist specialising in lens replacement surgery in Cork.

After training in Belfast, Mr Kervick has worked in Northern Ireland and North America, before joining the Mater Private Hospital in 1995. He has been performing LASIK surgery since 1998.

His specialism is in minimally invasive cataract surgery, but his other interests also lie in treating dry eyes and astigmatism.


1. Qualifications

Gerry Kervick first studied Medicine at University College Cork, before pursuing postgraduate studies in ophthalmology in Cork, Cardiff, Belfast and Miami.

Today, he is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), and a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO).

As well as treating patients, he now trains younger surgeons in this field. Here is his timeline to date:

  • 1991: Consultant at the Altnagelvin Area Hospital in Derry
  • 1992: Founder of AllClear, an independent laser refractive surgery provider
  • 1992: One of the first surgeons in the UK to perform photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)
  • 1995: Consultant at the Mater Hospital in Belfast

2. Experience

Mr Kervick has been performing laser eye surgery since 1998. He became a Consultant in 1991, and is currently a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Mater Hospital in Cork.

Known for his work in treating cataracts, Mr Kervick specialises in a specific style of vision correction called phacoemulsification. This involves performing cataract surgery using a tiny incision on the eye surface (cornea) using an excimer laser.

With anaesthetic eye drops alone, the surgeon is able to insert folding intraocular lenses. And the Mater Private Hospital prides itself on offering premium multifocal lenses.

For those not suitable for this type of treatment (perhaps due to age limits or complex eye prescriptions), Mr Kervick also provides refractive lens exchange (RLE), also known as clear lens extraction.


3. Mater Private Hospital

The Mater Private Hospital is a private hospital with clinics in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Liverpool.

It sets itself apart by offering same-day consultations to those who call before noon, and it claims to put its patients at the core of all its practices.

Even those without private health insurance may be able to enjoy this eye hospital’s services, thanks to a Self Pay service at the Cork and Dublin clinics.
