Optical House practices at Heraklion (Crete), Rhodes and Athens (Chalandri) are recognized as innovative optometry practices all over Greece, specializing in advanced contact lens fitting, low vision aids, sports vision and children eyecare, i.e. myopia management and amblyopia treatment using virtual reality.


The scientific personnel of Optical House has long-standing clinical experience, participating in vision-related research conferences and educational meetings worldwide. We provide a full optometric examination for the customised correction of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia and the selection of appropriate low vision aids for patients with eye disorders (eg. age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma).


We also prescribe latest generation contact lenses, with modern materials and therapeutic contact lenses for the treatment of corneal diseases (e.g. keratoconus, corneal grafts) and the correction of vision in post-surgical complications and in aphakia.
