Celebrating 40 years of Optelec


It has been 40 years since we started improving the life of visually impaired people with simple and effective solutions. We are very proud to have reached this milestone and are looking forward to help more people with our products in the future.


It all started with an ingenious optician...  

In1975, a customer of the Dutch optician Mr. Tieman could no longer see with his glasses. Mr. Tieman wanted to help this customer and developed his first video magnifier in the workshop of his optician practice. Little did he know that this project would one day turn into a flourishing business with offices throughout the world and a product assortment of Magnification, Braille and Speech products.
