Inside of Foley Opticians in Wexford Town

Foley Opticians Wexford Town

Foley Opticians has been situated in Cornmarket, Wexford Town since 1987. The practice is independently owned and operated by Wexford local, Brendan Foley. Brendan graduated with a Diploma (Honours) in Optometry in 1984, he opened his practice 3 years later and has been assisting the people of Wexford in their eye care ever since.

We also work in partnership with many of the leading ophthalmologists and local clinics in the south–east region of Ireland.

Some of our specialised services include visual field testing, contact and non-contact tonometry, fundus photography and specialized contact lens fitting, for example using rose-k and the newly availble clearKone lenses for kerataconic fitting.

The practice also boasts an in-house glazing lab, so as to provide a fast glazing and repair service for our patients. For more information please see our services section.
