Ms. Anoma Wijesuriya - Proprietress / MD

As the only child out of 6 of Mr. & Mrs. Wijesuriya who required spectacles, Anoma began the use of spectacles whilst schooling at Anula Vidyalaya, Nugegoda. It was Mr Wijesuriya’s ingenious idea that optometry would be an ideal profession for Anoma.

Soon after finishing her secondary education, Anoma joined her brothers in the United Kingdom to pursue her higher studies in Optometry, qualifying as an Optometrist with an Honours Fellowship of the British Dispensing Opticians and the Worshipful Company of Spectacle makers, U.K. Immediately afterwards, she worked in London for some years before returning home to Sri Lanka.

On her return, she joined William Pedris Opticians, who were the pioneers in the field of optometry in Sri Lanka and the only company who had a few qualified optometrists at the time. After gathering experience for a few years, with encouragement and the guidance of her father and brothers, Anoma embarked on the journey to start up a business of her own.

Anoma took the first steps of building Anoma Opticians, on the 28th day of March 1984 at No.150, Hewawaitharana Building, Highlevel Road, Nugegoda with just one staff member. After a few years establishing Anoma Opticians, the company moved to a new location in February of 1990 to 128-Amara Nagaraya, Highlevel Road, Nugegoda to accommodate servicing an ever increasing customer base. As the only outlet, the company remains at the same location to date, while continually expanding its space at the same premises.

After nearly three decades since the inception of Anoma Opticians, we are proud to be serving many generations whilst continually striving to improve our services. As "the Professionals who care for your eyes", we look forward to continuing our services for generations to come.
