30 years as a leading 100% Australian eyewear company

Discount Optical is a business arm of one of Australia’s most successful eyewear wholesalers. A family owned and operated business founded 30 years ago in 1982, we wholesale a huge range of reading glasses and sunglasses to many of Australia’s biggest pharmacies and chemists.

Family owned and operated

Owned and operated by 2 generations of our family, we have become a trusted name in the eyewear industry – a trust built up by our continual insistence on great customer service and high quality, reliable eyewear at prices everyone can afford. We believe you don’t have to pay a lot of money to wear quality, stylish Australian designed frames and we believe in providing high quality prescription glasses at an affordable price.

Affordable online prescription glasses – quality and style guaranteed

We launched Discount Optical because we wanted to offer affordable prescription glasses and reading glasses direct to our customers online. We have made sure that buying glasses online with us is an enjoyable, hassle free process: why not put your order in now?
