MEET THE TEAM
Rachel Murray – MCOptom
Originally from Sligo, Rachel completed her Optometry degree from Manchester University and joined the General Optical Council as a fully qualified member. Rachel stayed in the UK where she practiced in a varity of settings from hospital, multiple and independent opticians. In 2010 Rachel moved back to Ireland, registered with the Irish Association of Optometrists and worked for an independent optician in Dublin before making the leap to open her own practice in her home town of Sligo.
Rachel’s passion for giving back has led her to participate in volunteer missions with Vison Aid Overseas in Burkino Faso, Ethiopia and Uganda.
Rachel is totally committed to giving every patient superb eye care, and is keen to ensure her practice is fitted with the latest technology to enable this. Continuing education and personal development are important to Rachel, and she feels it is essential to pursue this goal, and therefore regularly attends conferences and courses. This enables her to keep updated with the latest techniques, and ideas on eye conditions and appliances.
Fraser McLean – Dispensing Optician (Awaiting CORU Registration)
Scottish native, Fraser has over 20 years of optical expertise. Fraser worked in both multiple and independent opticians throughout Scotland and Northern Ireland, before joining the team at Rachel Murray Eyecare in 2018.
Fraser brings not only a wealth of optical (and golfing!) knowledge to the role but also huge enthusiasm. He loves the challenge of turning a self proclaimed glasses hater into an unbridled eyewear enthusiast! Using his honed Columbo technique (minus the raincoat), he will take the time to get to the root of any eyewear conundrum and solve it with a spectacular pair of glasses that fits you like a glove and offers crystal clear vision. You can’t help but to be swept up and enjoy his unique style.
