Hello, I am Ali Badreddine.

The owner at Kaltenböck Opticians here in Toronto.

If you landed on our website then you understand we are fed up with the way the glasses industry is heading. Nearly all major famous brands are producing their glasses in the same factories in the far east.

This results in flimsy poor quality eyewear that will compromise comfort and vision.

This is why we made the decisions to only sell boutique or handmade glasses and invest in the equipment to edge the lenses ourselves. This allows us to sell glasses that are comfortable and incredibly accurate.

We also travel the world multiple times a year to go to fashion shows in Paris, Milan and NYC to bring you the most stylish glasses in Canada.

How Kaltenböck Opticians is different to all others in Ontario

  • We are fashion-forward and often the only opticians in Canada to stock unique glasses.
    We made it our mission to freshen up how our customers look. We aim to be ahead of the glasses fashion world, introducing looks and styles that are at least a year ahead of the market.
  • We value our customers and work with them to find their perfect look.
    If you have bad glasses, uncomfortable frames you will know the value of this. We will seek to transform your experience with working closely with you.
  • Complimentary styling consultation 
    For the past 35 years, we have been styling people from the Governor General of Ontario to CEOs of major Canadian and international cooperations.

This is why our customers stay loyal to us for over 30 years

Many of our customers chose to go out of their way to come buy from us. Some have moved out of the area or changed jobs but still decide to give up a Saturday to pay us a visit.


Our customers come in not knowing that where you buy your glasses and who edges them makes a substantial difference to your look and vision.

Once we educate our customers and show them the difference good customers service, unique glasses and in-house edging makes to their look and vision, they always come back.
