About Us

OPTIK! was established by Licensed Optician Anja Jakupovic and her husband Edin in 2017. Located in the heart of St. Petersburg's Beach Drive, the boutique offers only fine, handcrafted independent eyewear from European designers. Each frame is hand selected by Anja and her husband, during International Optical Trade Shows or in house while visiting with the designers themselves.

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.
