Eyeglass Repair in Bodrum

UPDATE! (June 16th, 2018)

Recently, I have been told that the shop - Emre Optik - I wrote about in this article is no longer exist.  I will try update this information next time I visit Bodrum. 

Actually this is a tiny part of a sad story: Local and global politics, economy and centralization of the capital have had deadly impact on tourism and local economy of Bodrum alike. I have met several people on my way to create enjoy-bodrum.com and realized that they are not only merchants but also real people who are working hard to make a living. I made friends among them and Emre Optik was one of them and I don't know where they are now. However it was a local shop employing locals in a city of tourism and I know hard hard it is.

I just feel sad...

I will post another update when I will be able to update this article. I am sorry for any inconvenience I might cause.

You’d never know when you are going to need eyeglass repair in Bodrum. Even if they are not prescription, sunglasses are one of the “must have” accessories of a Mediterranean trip. We need them not only in summers but in winters as well.

In a typical vacation you leave the room with your sunglasses and carry them till you return. On a beach, in a café, at a concert, in a museum or even in a pub at night they become a part of the body. That’s why they are more likely to be damaged in a vacation than any other time.

You can always buy a new one from an optician, a gift shop and even from the bazaar. There are variety of brands and prices available from no name eyeglasses to expensive and exclusive brands.

It wouldn't be always practical to buy something new when the old is broken, don’t you think? That leaves us only one solution; to get them fixed.

Eyeglass Repair in Bodrum

There should be some optician retail stores offering eyeglass repair in Bodrum but I would like to talk about one of them which I have been familiar for a long time: Emre Optik.

Emre Optik is a well-known optician in Bodrum. It is not one of the national or international chains that you can come across in the peninsula. The owner is a local and from Soke.

When you need to buy sunglasses or a prescription eyeglasses, it is one of the shops that you need to stop by. More importantly, they can also repair them.

Teoman Yaman, the owner of Emre Optik, has been in the business since 1997. He is also a very active member of the Bodrum community. I remember him sponsoring many events from sailing races to local festivals. A business man, a politician, a member of couple of societies; I may say he gives what Bodrum deserves.

Emre Optik is the only optician which has a local workshop to repair eyeglass in Bodrum at the time of writing in May 2014. This is a huge competitive advantage. While the others have to send bigger damages to Izmir, Emre can handle them locally and deliver your sunglasses just in hours.

The workshop is on the same building with the retail store. It is on the second floor and I was told it has all necessary equipment to repair serious damages as well.

I also asked about average delivery times. Of course they couldn’t be very specific because it depends on the work load and sometimes on spare parts but Teoman said it usually takes 1 to 2 hours to repair and deliver them. Meanwhile you can wait in one of the pubs and cafes at the old harbor because you are just 3 to 4 minutes far from there.

I hope you won’t but if you need to repair your eyeglasses, Emre Optik offers a reliable and professional service to get them fixed.
