Who are we?

Philemon is an independent optical company that has set itself apart by doing things differently. We reinvent the concept of traditional eyewear and place the customer experience at the heart of our daily work:

  • We help people in the Outaouais region discover the pleasure of matching their glasses to their personality. We broaden their horizons on what eyewear has to offer and we surprise them with exclusive, colorful and original collections.
