Our Doctors

Dr. Mary Murphy


Having worn glasses and contact lenses at a young age, Dr. Murphy knew she wanted to be an optometrist! She graduated from the University of Missouri – Saint Louis College of Optometry in 1988, is a member of local and state optometric associations, and has been in private practice for over 25 years! With 10 years of dedicated service to the Crestwood community, Dr. Murphy specializes in primary eye care, contact lenses, and macular degeneration.

Dr. Maria Nguyen Tantsits


Dr. Tantsits has been a doctor at Primary Eyecare & Eyeware since July of 2020 when she graduated from the University of Missouri St. Louis College of Optometry.  But Dr Tantsits was no stranger to our office as she had been working here as an optician for 5 years as she finished up her undergraduate degree at St. Louis University, and throughout her optometry school years. She has always been interested in private practice and has helped our office grow in so very many ways since she came on board.
