What began as a one room, 5 staff operation has today grown to 30+ branch operations with 300+ staff.

Our Services

Kenya has 100’s of opticians who are running shops but are not qualified to test/examine people’s eyes. Optica only hires professional Optometrists to conduct eye examinations. Our Optometrists make use of state of the art computerized testing equipment, to ensure accurate prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses. We have Optometrists from Austria, Spain, France, Britain, Philippines, Sri Lanka, India and Kenya.

We also have our own full service laboratory for manufacturing our client’s glasses, using the highest quality lens choices from leading optical lens manufacturers. We have technicians who have been trained in France, and thus specialize in up to date lens fitting techniques in frames.
