If you are new to Murphys the Opticians you’ll probably have some questions!

Below are the most common questions that we hear from new clients. I’ve tried to be as helpful as possible in the answers I give. However if anything is unclear, we’re always happy to answer your specific questions individually. Just call 053 91 42662 or email and one of the team will be at your service!

We take what we do seriously. Who are we for? Our clients tend to be people who want to look good in glasses and who care about design, quality and style. We find a lot of people struggle to know what will suit them and what will fit them.

Most of our clients are dissatisfied with normal frames on the high street. They are looking for something individual and different. Our goal is to combine individual eyewear design with professional expertise and personal service. We strive to bring the best in international eyewear to our clients. Our collections are sourced from the best eyewear designers around the world by travelling annually to international trade shows and design fairs.

Your 45 minutes eye exam will be with a senior optometrist. This allows us not only to carry out hugely important technical bits but the extra time we spend with you means that we can give you better advise and recommendations.

Long-term eye problems that can be caused by sun damage include cataracts, where small cloudy patches develop on the lens of the eye.

Macular degeneration, where there is a gradual loss of central vision, is also associated with long-term UV exposure.

Eyelid cancer and anterior eye complications can also be caused by sun exposure. The good news is prevention by wearing high quality sunglasses can prevent these in later life.

It has always been our belief that a beautiful frame deserves an equally special pair of lenses. The process of personalised lens design begins with an indepth eye examination.

Zeiss Vision Care is the world’s leading provider of precision optical lenses and we at Murphys the Opticians are proud of the relationship we have established over the years.
