M.L Soulliere Opticians opened on Ouellette on March 17, 1977 when Mike Soulliere started his Independent Opticianry practice and began serving Windsor/Essex county residents by providing exceptional service and only the best in eyewear.
Building the business
M.L Soulliere Opticians remained a fixture on Ouellette Avenue for nearly 43 years and was a family business in every sense of the word. Mike, his brother Tom who ran the in-store lab as well as Mike's son, Jeff joined the business to continue on the tradition.
On April 31st, 2020 we said farwell to our Ouellette location and moved the Optical to our new address at 3055 Dougall Ave. A brand refresh, a new space and new collections energized our family run business into this next exciting chapter.
From today on
We would like to welcome you into our bright space that houses more 2000 frames! A mixture of drawers, table top displays and custom wood shelves display our eyewear and we are here to help you with all of your eyewear needs.
We are happy to offer our Independent eyewear brands online and proud to bring these lines to Windsor/Essex. We have curated frames that we are sure our customers will be drawn to and that suit their style. All are handcrafted and have incredible attention to detail. What we have online is only a small sample of what we have at the Optical. Please make sure to stop by to see all of our brands in person, we have something to suit everyone and every budget.
Our kids want to look great in their specs too so come by the Optical to see our kids nook decked out with some pretty great wallpaper or shop online for our IZIPIZI line of screen/bluelight and sunglasses. The colours are fun, bright and sure to put a smile on your little one's face.
Jeff has been in the Optical Industry for 15 years and has great pride in establishing relationships with his clients. There's always a great playlist on in the Optical so stop by to see what the selection of the day is.
Mike began his career with Dr. Ing until he decided to open his own business in 1977 and he hasn't stopped since. Mike's customers are like family and you'll often see him at the Optical if he's not on the golf course.
Caron is mostly behind the scenes and runs the creative side of things, including social media, the website and the online shop. Full-time you will find her at Parks Canada working on the National Service team.
Fantastic selection of high quality frames from some of the best designers. Great customer service. Highly recommend this family run, local business with a long history of excellent service. The new location on Dougall is worth a visit!
Great small business I have dealt with Jeff's father Mike since 1973. Jeff took over from his father and moved location to South Windsor recently. Great selection, personal service and care continues after your purchase. I would never go anywhere else.
Our entire family has been getting our glasses from Soulliere Optical for many years and the service and selection has always been exceptional. Cannot recommend another optician more than Soulliere Optical - they will recommend great looking glasses for your whole family and are always there to help you. Great local business!
