Hidden between forests, heaths, and fens, lies Oisterwijk affectionately called ‘The Gem in the Green’ in the heart of Brabant. All over the city you will see well maintained and groomed green spaces with numerous bike paths. The historical buildings, centuries-old lime trees behind the town hall, exclusive shops in the stunning and historic De Lind, and perhaps the country’s largest terrace with 6000 chairs all add to the unique charm of Oisterwijk. It is easy to see why people call this city a true gem with restaurants, terraces, shops, and a wide range of culture and historic sites to experience. We joined Ruud Panis Brillen | Lenzen to tell us about their full service optical store and to learn more about the beautiful city of Oisterwijk in the Netherlands.

Interesting fact about your store:
Striving to lead the way in the fashion eyewear field, we aim to be the first to provide the latest eyewear brands and styles. In addition, we are experts in exclusive materials such as buffalo horn, leather, wood and Japanese titanium. We believe eyewear should make you more beautiful, the frame must match your face perfectly in shape and color, and our employees specialize in advising the best suitable eyewear and sunglasses. In addition, we consider the health of your eyes to be of great importance and are highly trained in optometry and use the latest techniques for medical eye exams.
