A service needs to be provided at Mayo University Hospital for people who require cataract operations.

That's according to Castlebar Independent Councillor Michael Kilcoyne, who says it's unfair that Mayo patients requiring treatment for cataracts are referred to hospitals in Galway and Sligo.

There are currently over 1800 people on waiting lists at Galway and Sligo University Hospitals for an appointment with a consultant in relation to cataracts, with some people waiting up to two years for a consultation, before their procedure can go ahead.

The figures were provided to Councillor Kilcoyne at this week's meeting of the HSE Regional Forum in Galway.
