OPTIK! European Eyewear

Located in the heart of St. Petersburg's Beach Drive, this small boutique offers independent eyewear from Europe. Our mission is to help you see and be seen.  At OPTIK! you can break free from the ordinary eyewear that is available everywhere and anywhere. Call us today to schedule your complimentary eyewear consultation. We want you to look and feel amazing in your new eyewear.
