Cool Hi All
We are over next week for a fortnight. We have just had our eye test in the U.K and heard glasses are cheaper in Cyprus...Any recommendations for an competent optician around Paralimni, and possible time it takes to get them?
Thanks
Keith.

hello pictureman, i just got my eyes retested 2 weeks ago in larnaca.
i bought a new pair of specs designer frames with transission lenses, for a mere 90cyp. i think that glasses are one of the most inexpensive items on this island, along with phone calls. my glasses were ready in 2 days.
i hope this helps you in some way, ronnie

Hi Keith

I went to Nicos Nicolaides Opticians in Paralimni, Lovely man very helpful,even did my eye test with him.

Got a pair of varifocals in a Gucci frame for 160 on my perscription done in 3 days, went back the following week and got designer frame in big sunglasses with my perscription but without the reading bit in it for 100cy. The best pair of sunglasses I have ever had,done in 2 days.

The best way to describe where he is located is stand in the square in Paralimni facing the way the traffic is coming into it,walk down there keeping one careful eye on the cars of course,don,t turn immediate right but turn the fork right follow that road and he is down there a short distance on the left hand side, a couple of shops after him there is the road that takes you to Paralimni Post Office ok. He has lots of choice.Tell him I will be back soon want another pair! Cool

Lyn

If you do a search for opticians, you'll find several recommendations.

HTH, Marion
