→ See images

Your personal optician in the true sense of the word. At Benckert Optik, the clinical part, the personal meeting, the unique and handpicked range, and the service are equally important. Located on Åsögatan, near Medborgarplatsen, Benckert Optik caters to customers who want a little more from their glasses. For those customers who see glasses as part of their personality. To residents of Södermalm and Stockholmers who value aesthetics and quality.

Benckert has been a fixture in Södermalm since the 1970s and has acquired a well-deserved good reputation during that time. In 2011, current owners Daniel Johnsson and Marie Larsson took over. Two licensed opticians with the same basic vision of putting the customer first. Together, they often visit international fairs to handpick frames with that little something extra. The range consists of quality brands Cutler and Gross, Masunaga, EoE Eyewears, Oscar Magnusson, Maui Jim, Tom Ford, and Le Specs – to name just a few.

Benckert Optik can also boast about having one of Sweden’s largest selections of glasses from the Danish designer Lindberg, globally known for his minimalist and feather-light titanium frames of the highest standard. It’s all about being able to meet the customers’ demands for glasses. Timelessness over temporary trends, quality over quantity – of being able to truly offer our customers glasses that help them express their personality.

This optician undeniably stands out from the larger chains on the market. Not least when it comes to time. At Benkerts they take the time to help their customers from start to finish. Thorough research, and advice on brands, shapes, and colors – these things should not be rushed. The service and communication are top-notch. Competing with reduced prices on lower quality goods is not an option for this local optician. Instead, they have chosen to invest in consistent security based on the best value services and products.

With its own workshop on-site, Benckert Optiker can in many cases offer its own final production. Much can be solved during the day. Sometimes it is possible to get your glasses in just an hour. Of course, it is perfectly fine to just buy new glass to upgrade your own already existing frames. Today, Benckert uses the world-renowned German optical company, Carl Zeiss, as its main supplier of glass. In the assortment, you will also find layered glass (single ground Zeiss glass incl. scratch protection + anti-reflective). In addition, Södermalmsoptikern is one of the few in Sweden that works with the new i.Scription® technology – a unique glass concept that enables clearer and more contrasting vision at night and in the twilight.

Make an appointment online or drop in when you’re passing by. Order in-store or via the company’s webshop. The idea is to be simple and flexible. And let the glasses test take time. Daniel Johnsson cannot emphasize enough how important our eyes are and how crucial our vision is to our quality of life. All daily visual impressions… your eyes deserve only the very best.

Regardless of whether you are looking for glasses, sunglasses, night, monthly, or daily contact lenses, vision, eye health, or lens examination, Benckert Optik will provide a personal service where all your preferences are taken into account. Clinical expertise and aesthetic advice in a beautiful combination. Glasses are not just glasses – glasses are part of who you are.
