Your luxury boutique store in Amsterdam centre.
ALL OUR STAFFMEMBERS CAN HELP YOU IN ENGLISH !
Our boutique style optic shop is located in the centre of Amsterdam. Only 10 minutes away from central station it's easy to reach by foot or bicycle.
If you're only looking for a frame so you can have the lenses fit in your hometown then that's possible too. It may be a lot cheaper because of the tax (21%) return at the airport.
If you want to have an eye test done then we prefer you make an appointment. In that we have make sure we have enough time to do the test and explain to you what the best options for you are.
An eye test is €40 but if you buy the frame and lenses it's included in the price. If you don't buy that right away but come back in 6 months we still deduct the €40 from the price. After 6 months we advice you to do a new test.
We do the test in English if you prefer that. Other languages are not possible. Even when there is an interpreter present. A test is about very subtle differences and that doesn't work with an interpreter.
