Windhoek Optics was officially registered in 1987, three years prior to Namibia’s independence.
However since the late 60’s the principal and founder of the company, Mr. Franz Mehl, travelled all over the country to make spectacles available to people in the remotest parts of Namibia. He was “ op Pad ”.
Thus, Windhoek Optics has been offering optometric service to the entire country for more than 50 years ! (see also at “Services”)
This service is well appreciated by the population and is still offered by the current owner of Windhoek Optics, Mr. Theo Klatte, who took over the company in 2007 .
As a well-established Optometric Service Provider, Windhoek Optics take care of all kinds of visual needs and in co-operation with the local Ophthalmologists always offers the best possible service.
Windhoek Optics opened its doors in 1987 and after 31 years of successful service the need of refurbishment arose. During the month of June 2018 a lot of tilers, carpenters, electricians and other craftsmen created a new look and gave the shop a stylish and modern atmosphere.
The Covid-19 pandemic had a huge impact to the entire world. Namibia was no exception and the population struggled as well. Windhoek Optics adhered to all regulations and could continue to provide the service to the valued customers in the shop as well as to the population in remote areas. We thank all our customers for their confidence and continued support during these challenging times !
Now, as the pandemic is over we are back stronger than before and pleased to serve our clients in Windhoek and the entire country.
