Our President's Message...

Akay Optik's Past and Present
and the Opakay Formation

Dear Colleagues,

Our company Akay Optik was established in Izmir in 1993 by Mr. Mehmet Akay with his broad experience in the optics industry since 1960.  Mehmet Akay, who is known as the doyen of optics in Turkish optical indstry not only today, but also in previous years, is of Cypriot origin and received his optics training in London in 1969. After the transfer of Akay Optik to Opak Lens Group of Companies in 2018, Mehmet Akay returned to Cyprus, where he was born and grew up, and continued to manage his family's optical stores. Mehmet Akay, the founder of Akay Optik, continues to contribute to Akay Optik with all his experience and knowledge, whenever necessary.

Established in 1993 to provide wholesale service as an optical glass warehouse, Akay Optik Ltd. Şti. started to manufacture Rx in 1998. With the addition of the AR laboratory in 2004, it continued to serve the sector as a fully equipped factory. With the R&D studies carried out, it has achieved the success of being the first company that can deliver AR coated organic lens in one day without sacrificing quality.

Today, Akay Optik is one of the leading companies that produce the highest quality optical lenses and anti-reflective coatings in Turkey, with its extensive experience in Rx and the latest technology we use. And today it is leading the market in optical lenses, as it has been for years.

In 2012, Akay Optik incorporated the "freeform" production technology, in addition to the traditional lens production technology, and started to provide services in this regard.

In November 2018, after a year of cooperation between Akay Optik and our company Opak Lens, which has the most extensive optical product distribution network in Turkey, Akay Optik joined Opak Lens Group of Companies, and naturally increased its service speed in all geographical regions. Thus, under the name of Opakay formation, Opak Lens has started to distribute its own brand of stock lenses, as well as the customized progressive lenses which are manufactured by Akay Optik.

Today, we are very proud that our company Akay Optik, which serves the optical sector as a customized progressive lens manufacturer of the Opak Lens Group of Companies, is one of the few companies in Turkey with its 100% national capital and producing at world standards. And likewise all our group companies we always work hard to keep Akay Optik evolving in its own path.
