about us

Over the past 80 years, Boonteng Optical Co. has developed into a well-respected chain of optical retail outlets specializing in the fitting and sales of quality spectacles and lenses. During this time, the company has earned a reputation for offering a wide range of brand-name eyeglass frames, lenses, contact lenses and sunglasses, coupled with friendly, personalized service from well-qualified opticians.

Boonteng Optical was one of the first optical shops in Thailand and has been a pioneer in the growth of Thailand’s optical business. The company's founder, Mr. Boonteng Lopansri, was the first president of the Thai Optical Association. He was the first optometrist in Thailand to offer Essilor Varilux progressive lenses, thus paving the way for future opticians.

Boonteng Optical was founded in 1931 under the name Prachak Optical, as a retailer of spectacle frames and lenses. Mr. Boonteng and his good friend Dr. Prachak decided that one would manage the optical side of the business, while the other would take care of the medical side.

Through a combination of hard work and good service, the shop’s reputation grew among its many customers and among eye doctors at hospitals throughout Bangkok. Its subsequent growth in business eventually led to the opening of a branch on Sukhumvit Road in 1978 under the name Boonteng Optical to honor the founder.

The original retail shop is still located in the Saphan Morn area of Charoen Krung Road, at Sikak Phyasri not far from Chalerm Krung Royal Theater. However, the opening of Boonteng Optical in the Sukhumvit Business District sparked a period of expansion for the company, which has continued to this day.
