Optiko James Street


Optiko on James St New Farm isn’t your average opto chain. You won’t find your run-of-the-mill common brands that are mass produced for every optometrist in Australia. At Optiko every piece is one of a kind and hand crafted. Here, you will get your hands on labels such as Cutler & Gross, Oscar Magnusson, Cartier, Thom Browne and more.


When I told a couple of friends that I was going to write a post for Brisbane Threads about Optiko, they quickly piped up and told me about their experiences with the boutique optometrist. It’s evident that every staff member at the store has a real love and passion for what they do, who they serve and giving their customers they most personalised and satisfying service in Brisbane. You’re sure to get the royal treatment from the moment you enter until you’ve found your dream specs that stand out from the crowd.

 In preparation for my US trip the team at Optiko hooked me up with a new pair of specs and sunnies, both as unique as it gets! My pair of Oliver Peoples‘ clear framed glasses match everything and add a funky twist. I also got my hands on a pair of Ann et Valentin sunglasses, (who hail from Paris) are perfectly suited to the fashion-set.


Optiko don’t just specialise in unique and carefully crafted specs, you can get your eyes tested and cared for here too. All of the latest eye care technologies are practiced at Optiko. Included in your optical experience will be high-res digital retinal photography as well as your standard vision tests to make sure your peepers are in tip-top shape.

Optiko are definitely worth checking out if you’re after a unique experience and some specs that will stand out from the rest.
