Neubau our latest range is eco-friendly, high quality, extremely light with ergonomic design for great fitting frames. The frames are made from naturalPX which is a highly developed, eco-friendly material. naturalPX is made from organically sourced and renewable primary products, as 65% of it is based on oil extracted from the seeds of castor oil plants. Everything from the design process to the spectacle case is the best possible design for the environment. Learn more about Neubau.
As eyecare professionals the rising levels of obesity and it's associated health issues are a major concern. We support Richard Kennedy's FreeFruitforAll Campaign in South Tipperary General Hospital. Learn more about this great campaign here.
Our Charity of choice is Cystic Fibrosis Ireland,
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetically inherited disease that primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system. Ireland has the highest incidence of Cystic Fibrosis in the world – approximately 1 in 19 Irish people are said to 'carry' one copy of the altered gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis.
We all have to do our little bit for the environment. Optique Vision is a paperless practice. We have a state of the art software programme and do our best to keep the amount of paper to a strict minimum. We are encouraging all our customers to opt for phone, text or email communication. All our paper and plastic waste is recycled. We offer our patients a spectacle recycling service - old spectacles are donated to the Lions Club for redistribution to developing countries or recycling.
