Went to Alton Murphy in Mold today. Pat the optician was lovely, made me feel at ease, and Kirsty was also lovely at helping me choose the right frame for my glasses.

Karen Edwards

Been going to alton Murphy in Llangefni for many years and the service from all the team there is amazing, always friendly and very helpful. They have been especially helpful over the lockdown period, phoning up to make sure I get my monthly contact lenses delivered and on time! Highly recommended

Give Your Old Glasses to Charity

We are now supporting Marie Curie who are working with The Lions Club to help recycle glasses and raise money for charity projects.

Donating your frames to charity is an excellent way of getting rid of an old pair while doing a good deed. Alton Murphy are happy to take your old frames off your hands and use them for good.

Please leave your unwanted spectacles at any of our Alton Murphy branches. Thank you
