Tri Optical was established by Mr. Edward Huan Khoi Tri in 1995 at our first location on Somerset St. in Chinatown. Since then, news of our exceptional customer service, great selection and quality has spread by word-of-mouth throughout Ottawa.


In December 2009, Tri Optical opened its second location at the new T&T grocery store at the corner of Riverside and Hunt Club. Both locations carry top-of-the-line brands that suit all tastes and styles, whether it is classic, modern or funky.


Currently, Tri Optical offers services in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and English.
