Our Story

In 1961, a young Matthew Murphy qualified both as an Optometrist and Pharmacist. Looking to gain experience Matt worked in Cork, Dublin and Mullingar before deciding to set up his own practice in Wexford town. Starting out in 1961 in what was originally a bakery, Murphys the Opticians was established.

In 2009, Alison following in her father’s footsteps, established her own independent practice. Having graduated in 2001 with a 1st Class Honours and being awarded the Harte Barry Gold medal Alison gained vast experience working in Dublin, Cork and Wexford.

In 2018, Matt retired in the knowledge that Alison will carry on his legacy and maintain the excellence in standards that Murphys the Opticians is synonymous with.

We want all our clients to look, feel and see great. Traveling to International Optical Shows, Alison and her team guarantee to bring you an interesting and innovative eye wear collection. Lets put the fun back in to eye care and eye wear.
