Today, Kefan Optics boasts a thriving and successful presence in Kuwait, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Jordan and Iraq. “Through our collaboration with the best of international brands, we deliver world-class products and services to our customers,” says Wael Al Sabih, president of Kefan Optics.

Kefan takes pride in firmly establishing itself as the manufacturer and distributor of Nikon ophthalmic lenses in the GCC. They began distributing in 1996 and became commissioned in 2005 when they built their Nikon manufacturing plant. They are carefully monitored and regulated by Nikon France and Nikon Japan.

In its quest to ensure an outstanding experience for its customers, Kefan Optics invests heavily in training its employees. They enjoy regular training programs on subjects ranging from optics and customer service to positive thinking. Vice-president Hussain Al-Wazzan attributes the company’s growth and success to these training programs and unique philosophies.

Catering to market demands for unique concepts and diversity, Kefan has adopted “The Art of Vision” as one of its forward-thinking beliefs. Optylife is a new concept in luxury optics that caters to the eclectic needs and luxe standards of fashion-conscious eyewear consumers. Optysport, a unique concept, is regarded as the pioneer of sports eyewear, offering trendy, functional, sport-specific sunglasses and prescription lenses for serious athletes. Kefan is now looking at extending its horizons to reach a greater number of customers. With no limit to its expansion plans, perhaps the U.S. will soon be able to enjoy this leading Kuwaiti brand.
