McCartan Opticians is a small Irish-owned practice in the heart of Ringsend, Dublin 4. We’ve been taking care of patients since 1935. And we’re deliberately different from the highstreet brands.

Our purpose is to provide personalised, high quality optical care. So we give every patient the kind of time and attention that’s rarely possible in a larger practice. And people from all over the country return to us again and again, because they can feel the difference. We’re proud to have patients for life.

Call us old-fashioned. We call it caring.

A thorough eye exam is recommended every two years.

What are our customers saying?

To me, my relationship with my optician is as important as my relationship with my doctor. There’s an optician on every corner these days, and glasses have become a ‘commodity’, but I return to Jason McNerney because he takes such good care of my eye health. I get a careful and comprehensive eye test, every time - and he takes the time to get it right. I don’t get ‘sold’ glasses I don’t need. And I have a relationship with a professional that I really trust. To me, that’s priceless.
