Piraeus 1935: Michael Vardavas, founder of our company, starts
his career as an optician with a small kiosk, the only one in Greece
that possesses the right to sell sunglasses and vision glasses. After
a while, this kiosk turns into a small shop sharing its place with a
drugstore. And a few years later, the first integrated optical store
is created, named "Vardavas Optics".
Athens 1975: Vardavas Optics is extended in Athens
and particularly in one of the most central roads, Acadimias street.
Michael Vardavas' son, Evripidis Vardavas, having been already an optician
since 19 years old, finishes his studies as a surgeon oculist and creates
an Ophthalmological Clinic and Institute of Contact Lenses exactly near
the Optical Store. Afterwards, Evripidis Vardavas and his wife Anastasia
Vardava devote themselves to the dynamic development and organization
of the company.
Today, our company is constituted by these two departments
in Acadimias street. On the one hand, Vardavas Optics, has become synonymous
not only to the best quality of sunglasses, vision glasses and accurate
execution of eye prescriptions but also to reliable and responsible
customer service. On the other hand, the Ofthalmological Clinic has
evolved to a state-of-the-art Diagnostic Eye Center and Institute of
Contact Lenses, called "Diavgia Opthalmologiko". The unbreakable
connection between the Eye Clinic and Optical Store is one of the main
reasons that our company is perceived to be a pioneer in its field.
We have continuously been by your side for seventy
five years about everything related with your eyes' health. With the
most personal and willing customer service. With the deepest knowledge
of our work. With our own Diagnostic Eye Center and Institute of Contact
Lenses. With our own technical laboratory for lenses and glasses.
Seven decades were enough to prove you that our
company always knows how to create what you ask from your optician and
