Optrep Optical Repairs operates from a well-equipped, modern workshop located on the South Coast of England. It has over 50 years of experience to draw upon and an unrivalled range of optical instruments can be repaired and serviced, including:-

and Ophthalmic Instruments such as:-

All makes and ages of equipment, from the earliest to the most modern, can be handled, including wartime binoculars. Turn-round is rapid and the work is both effective and reasonably priced. Servicing is always carried out as the manufacturer intended including, when appropriate, purging with zero grade nitrogen. Customers are invited to call in or send their equipment by post or courier (well-packed of course). Call-out for in-situ servicing can be arranged, this service being chiefly for the benefit of opticians. Free estimates are given when requested.

The Technical Director of Optrep, Tony Kay, is a trained engineer. Questions are often asked as to his origin and so this very brief CV is given: Academic work at Wimbledon Technical College was followed by a five-year apprenticeship in instrument making and then three years in the designing of heavy steelworks machines. He began working on optical instruments in 1960 and then, in 1962, he launched his own company, Kay Optical Servicing at Morden in south London. Over the years, much knowledge and material was amassed from the work on a great variety of optical instruments, including binoculars and then ophthalmic instruments. Later, the sales of binoculars and telescopes were added to the business. By 2002, Tony left the sales side of the business to his youngest son (also named Tony) and had the special Optrep workshop built next to his home in Selsey, West Sussex. Here, conditions were much more placid and were perfect for concentrating on repair work, with far fewer interruptions.

Today, when there are very few independent skilled optical technicians left, Optrep has a truly international reputation and has carried out optical repairs from countries as diverse as Australia, Alaska, Belgium, Canada, Cook Islands, Denmark, Eire, Finland, France, Germany, Hawaii, Holland, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Tanzania and the USA.
