Also known as the ‘Megane-no-Miki,’ PARIS MIKI is a long-established optical store in the Kansai area (the western part of Japan).

It is now one of the largest optical chain stores globally as it’s expanded to other countries such as the United States, Europe and some parts of Asia.

The company’s ideology is consistent across all locations, with highly qualified and experienced staff providing thoughtful customer services, the local people have loved. Another highlight of ‘PARIS MIKI’ is the high-quality aftercare service offered by utilising the international store network, which has been operating for many years. To improve and maintain eyewear technology and eye care related skills to provide better services, the staff regularly attend professional seminars and courses to hone their skills. 



The first Australian ‘PARIS MIKI’ opened as the ‘PARIS MIKI OPTICAL CHATSWOOD’, reopening after the renovation in June 2015 in Chatswood Westfield. Just a 7-minute walk from Chatswood Station, it’s been popular among the locals searching for the ideal set of glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses to suit their needs. 

One feature which is unique to ‘PARIS MIKI OPTICAL CHATSWOOD’ is the store interior design. It is based on the red colour inspired by rock and roll, exhibiting music posters, instruments including real guitars, drums and organs, and vintage records and jukeboxes.

Customers, including music lovers, would visit the store to take commemorative photos of the store interior design or even play the guitars themselves. The layout of ‘PARIS MIKI OPTICAL CHATSWOOD’ is well thought out to provide the enjoyment of  in-store shopping, offering the place to not only purchase eyewear but also provide ‘MORE THAN JUST AN OPTICAL SHOP.’

Although each health insurance policy has different coverage, the annual benefit limits will typically reset at the end of each year.
