Europa is the eyewear company committed to staying independent. Operated by the second generation of our founding family, we’re proud to craft products and policies focused on supporting likeminded, independent eye care professionals. 

Independence is in our DNA. You can chalk that up to the fact that Europa Eyewear is still owned and operated by its founding family, but it goes further than that. It's a deep-seated belief that we share with independent-minded eye care professionals and eyeglass wearers - that independent offices are vital parts of their communities.
