Optique de Paris is the vision brought to life by Anna Moss, Optometrist and proud francophile. Seduced by the Parisian boutiques that deal in the exquisite, Anna set out 9 years ago to create a shop in Melbourne that would be right at home in the Champs-Élysées. Since then she has been serving the Hampton community with meticulous eye care, the latest developments in lens technology, and perfect eyewear for each unique person who walks through the door!
Anna wanted to create a place where people could feel at home, comfortable and looked after. Where people could find beautiful eyewear to enhance their image and match their personality. A little Parisian haven.
What we are about
Seeing beyond the ordinary.
Exceptional eyewear and the latest-technology lenses. No plain, uninspiring glasses you’ll see every other person wearing. No lenses that restrict your field of view and limit your lifestyle. No low-quality products that last less than 12 months. Clients are guaranteed to find eyewear that fits perfectly, looks spectacular, feels great and is a stylish accessory for their face. Glasses don't have to be boring!
Who we are
Anna is the Creator and Optometrist of Optique de Paris. A part of the Hampton community since 2007, she graduated from Melbourne University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Optometry and is Therapeutically-endorsed, meaning she can administer prescriptions for eye infections and diseases. Anna is also a Contact Lens Practitioner and highly-experienced in fitting contact lenses for the most complicated eyes and prescriptions. She loves getting to know her patients; hearing their stories and learning what is the most important in their lives – and therefore their glasses. She has a keen eye for detail and a flair for colour, so Anna is an expert when it comes to finding the perfect pair of glasses for every client.
Outside of the Boutique, Anna loves immersing herself in all the bayside life has to offer; whether it’s walking her dog on the beach, or SUP-ing (stand up paddle boarding). Above all else she loves spending time with her two gorgeous daughters and her family.
Ruby is the Optical Technician here. She has worked in the Optical industry since 2011 and studied Optical Dispensing at RMIT, graduating in 2014.
Ruby will be able to help you with selecting the right frame that flatters your features, and also is suitable for your prescription and visual needs. She is our lens guru and will ensure the lenses that go into your spectacles give you the best vision possible; interpreting the prescription reached by Anna and taking into consideration your lifestyle and work demands, as well as your expectations and the restrictions of the script.
When Ruby isn’t looking after people’s frames and lenses, she is pursuing her love for acting and playwriting. She has always revelled in storytelling and relating to people from all walks of life through our core humanity. Ruby has found that optical dispensing has greatly helped her grow as an actor, and vice versa; as both roles require really being present with people, listening and empathising, and then figuring out a way to fulfil their needs.
