Are you looking for high quality glasses made from sustainable materials? Then go to Optiek Cardoen in Beselare! This store, founded by Francisca, has been around for more than 30 years and is already an established name in West Flanders. A few years ago, this professional eyewear shop switched from the big, well-known eyewear brands to European brands and small, environmentally friendly eyewear manufacturers.

Are you looking for prescription glasses? At Optiek Cardoen you will enjoy expert advice and you can also have your eyes measured. The optician orders the lenses from the environmentally friendly lens manufacturer Zeiss. Moreover, all glasses are assembled by Francisca herself in her workshop at the back of the store. Are your glasses damaged or broken? Then you can also come in for repairs.

At Optiek Cardoen you will find a nice selection of frames from small, sustainable brands that work with recycled or bio-based materials. Francisca has only one pair of each style in her store.  That way you can be sure of getting a unique pair of glasses!

Good to know: for every pair of glasses sold, Optiek Cardoen donates 5 euros to Light For The World, a Belgian NGO that helps blind children in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, South Sudan and Uganda. So when you’re buying your new glasses here, you also contribute to a better world.
