About Dr. R. Michael Murphy

R. Michael Murphy, OD provides the full range of optometric services. His interests include disease management, ocular infection, refractive surgery consultations, systemic disease with ocular implications and routine eye care, including custom prescribing of occupational glasses for work and recreation. He enjoys working with patients of all ages and seeing generations of family members.

Dr. Murphy was born in Atchison, Kansas where he attended Maur Hill Prep. He earned his undergraduate degree from Kansas State University and received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston in 1986. He returned to Kansas where he joined Dr. Doug Blackman in private practice. He joined Grene Vision Group in 2004.

Dr. Murphy has been a member of the Kansas Optometric Association and American Optometric Association since 1982. He is an active volunteer in fundraising for community organizations and has a special place in his heart for "The Lord's Diner," a not-for-profit soup kitchen that provides an evening meal in two Wichita locations seven days a week. When Dr. Murphy is out of the office, he enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including golf and running.

"I have had the privilege of practicing in Wichita since 1986 and enjoy the friendships I have developed with my patients. Each day I come to the office and am excited to see who is on my schedule. I attempt to know my patients and not just examine their eyes. This adds to the experience for me as much as it does for the patient. We are surrounded by talented surgeons and technology that allows us to provide the best care possible. This is truly a wonderful time for eye care."

Dr. Murphy provides care to his patients at the Grene Vision Group Ridge Road and Webb Road locations in Wichita, KS.
