About the owner

Murray O’Brien first entered optics in 1982 as an apprentice with the highly respected Melbourne company Coles and Garrard. He now has over 36 years experience in both retail and wholesale optics. His depth of knowledge in both theoretical and practical optics ensures trusted technical backup and advice. Murray is immediate past President of the Australian Dispensing Opticians Association (Victoria).

Murray has also regularly written for “Mivision”, a magazine for the ophthalmic industry. Here is a link to one of the many articles he has written http://www.mivision.com.au/a-japanese-frame-designing-odyssey/

Australian Owned

We are a locally owned family business. We would encourage everyone to buy locally and keep the money in their community. Buying your goods at foreign owned multinationals sends the profits overseas, so in particular please support your locally owned optical dispenser or optometrist!

 Retro and Modern

We have a range of the most modern and fashionable styles available, but our true love are traditional retro and classic styles. Come in and check out our great range of classic eyewear imported directly from the original suppliers in the U.S., England and Japan.
