The new standard for all clear spectacle lenses.
- UV radiation is always there. All year round. All day, even when it is cloudy.
- It is as dangerous for your eyes as it is for your skin; UV radiation is one of the biggest challenges to long-term eye health.
- UV protection is recommended against harmful UV rays up to 400nm. But up to 80% of today’s clear lenses do not offer full UV protection.
Optika Opticians has now opened a new optical shop at Pendergardens, featuring a full selection of fashionable and functional eyeglasses, contact lenses, sunglasses and eyecare cosmetics specifically designed for contact lens users and people with hypersensitive skin. The new store, which is situated along St. Andrew’s Road in St. Julians, is Optika’s fourth outlet in Malta. Since 1965, the family run business company has established itself as one of the most trusted opticians on the island.
With the opening of the new store at Pendergardens, Optika’s emphasis will continue to be on customer service, ensuring everyone has a first-class experience when visiting any of the four company outlets located in Malta. Optika’s mission has always been that to provide an efficient service whilst simultaneously providing individual attention to each customer.
“At Optika we go out of our way to provide the highest standards of eye care and eye wear by investing in the latest equipment and building a professional team. Our new leading store at Pendergardens was built around the needs of our patients and customers as we aim to uphold and improve on the service our outlets are reputable for,” said resident Optika Optometrists Mr Jerome Gabarretta.
For the past fifty years Optika has not only proved to be a national front-runner in the eye health industry but through its stores, in Sliema, St. Julians and Rabat, it has turned out to be a one stop shop for all optical things and necessities. “We want to make sure that all our patients eye care needs are catered for through the optometric services my brother Kerstien, and myself provide as well as roping in other ophthalmologists who will complete the team,” added Mr Gabarretta.
The new store at Pendergardens is set over two floors, with a retail area on the ground floor which will display all the latest eyewear (sunglasses and optical) collections from major brands such as Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vogue, Persol, Oliver Peoples, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Bulgari, Dolce&Gabbana, Michael Kors, Prada, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany & Co., Versace, and Valentino amongst others. At the new Pendergardens place, Optika will also stock the latest ranges of contact lenses and contact lens care products.
On the upper floor the new store has Optika’s state of the art clinics with all the latest diagnostic equipment to give the very best eye care experience to patients. The public Pendergardens car park is also available for Optika’s customers to use. Undoubtedly the specialised team are raring to go as they are using the very latest high-tech optical equipment which will surely make Optika’s outlet at Pendergardens as Malta’s favourite spot for eyecare and optometric clinical health services.
The new Optika flagship store in Pendergardens’ is being realized with the assistance of European Union ERDF funding achieved through the Business Enhance SME Growth Grant.
