Murphys the Opticians are one of Wexford’s longest established optical care practices. We are a boutique opticians located in the heart of Wexford town. We’re proud to be independent and we love what we do!

At our Wexford Opticians store, you will discover a world of independent eyewear. As a team, we have carefully handpicked glasses and sunglasses from leading eyewear designers from all over the world. If you are looking for something different than what you find on the high street, then these frames are for you.

Whether you’re looking for guidance on frame choices, style advice on your new look shades, lens options or just what’s in season, we’ve got you covered.

Combine this with premium Carl Zeiss lenses and we are sure we can help you find the perfect pair of glasses tailor made for you. This allows us to take into consideration lens thickness, weight, durability, colour, shape and overall aesthetics. Not only should your vision be crisp but your eye-wear should also be beautiful.
