Owned and run by Elaine O'Sullivan F.A.O.I. Optometrist, Optique Opticians first opened its doors on the first of October 2007 and has been proudly serving the people of Galway ever since.


Our second consulting room opened in June 2018 with advanced technology such as digital slit lamp imaging of the anterior and posterior eye. We also have new Dry Eye and Red Eye grading software. This ensures that our patients receive the very best professional care.


Optique boasts the most advanced and latest eye care technology including OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) which allows a 3D scanning of the anterior and posterior ocular tissues.


It enables Optometrists to observe early signs of tissue change of the cornea, lens and retina associated with glaucoma, age related macular degeneration, diabetic vascular disease and other ocular abnormalities.

OCT is relatively recent technology which is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. It captures 2D digital photography and 3D scanning of the ocular tissues at the same time.


We continually invest in our business with high levels of Professional Optometric standards and with the most advanced technology.  Our Optometrists are Fellows of the Association of Optometrists of Ireland and have Professional Post-Graduate Certificates in Medical Retina from the University of Ulster. Our brand new additional consulting room will open in June 2018. This ensures that our patients receive the very best professional care.


Optique has a specially designed childrens area complete with DVD and play area and with an impressive range of fun and funky kids and teens glasses.


Our state-of-the-art Opticians is a visually striking shop that awakens the senses as soon as you walk in. One is greeted by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, funky orange leather chairs, stunning designer eyewear plus accessories in steel and frosted glass surroundings.
