Our Journey so far…


Nishamani Duruge Optometrists have been catering to the eye-care needs of people since 26th August 1995. The  partnership of President Partner Optom. Samanthi Nishamani Duruge and Managing Partner Optom. Gamini Prasanna Duruge are at the helm of this customer-friendly Optometrist. Optom. Nishamani honed her skills with J.M Wickramarachchi & company at their head office between 1989 & 1995.

Having moved to our own premises back in 2000, we have managed to cater to the visionary care needs of several thousands. We obtained our preliminary qualifications from Germany back in 1993 and further relevant qualifications were acquired in Sri Lanka, later on.

Currently, we act as Sole Agent in Sri Lanka for Pennine Optical Group based in Manchester, United Kingdom. A great majority of our spectacle frames and sunglasses are imported from the United Kingdom. However, in order to make available a wider choice of frames, sunglasses and prices for our customers, we also import from Italy, Germany, France, Austria, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Optom. Nishamani Duruge has been a member of the Sri Lanka Optometric Association since 1991 whilst Optom. Gamini Duruge has been a member since 1996. Both are also Founder Members of the Eye Care Optometric Association.

Being a family business much loved by its customers over several years, our daughter Inone Duruge is currently an associate member of the Sri Lanka Optometric Association.

The capable Technicians who work with us all possess over 25 years of experience in this field and they provide us the support and strength to serve our customers to their utmost satisfaction who in turn, return to us for their eye-care requirements.

Optom. Nishamani Duruge’s brother Manuja Peiris based in the United Kingdom is a Consultant to the business and his valuable input is of immense value for us to keep up to-date with ethical aspects, regulations, technology and materials, in order to serve our customers with clinical efficiency.
