About Us


V.A.Mayekar Opticians was established in the year 1959 by Late MR.VASANT ATMARAM MAYEKAR with its first Optical Showroom at Dadar (Mumbai) on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami.

A decade back in late 1940’s when Mr.Vasant A. Mayekar came to Mumbai as a youngster he started working at an Optical Shop as a assistant performing all the odd jobs given by the employer and the staff working at the outlet. His inquisitive nature and sheer determination very quickly made him learn and understand the optical trade and in no time he was upgraded as a salesman in that same store. He soon found out the scarcity of Optometrist needed for Refraction and the lack of awareness on eye related complications amongst the people, which resulted in poor eyesight. He quickly learnt and mastered the art of refraction and decided to take it one step ahead, the shop he was working in had a lunch time from 12 to 4.30. When his colleagues rested he took this as an opportunity and he started visiting people door to door and performed the eye testing at their home itself. Immobilized people, the elderly, the house wives, children, people working in mills suffering from eye fatigues due to extensive overtimes and night shifts,& all those for whom commuting was a big hassle then, this door to door refraction and salesman was very convenient.

The hunger to excel and serve more people made him leave his job and from a part timer he dedicated all his time in to Door to Door Refractions cum salesman, visiting and later delivering the spectacles at the door step.  As the trust started building up and more and more people were benefiting from this service, one man travelling all across from Mahim to Lowerparel was getting difficult to optimally serve and satisfy all the customers. This demanded a fixed place where people can contact and connect.

This gave us our first store at Dadar in a lane opposite Plaza Cinema. Dadar as it was centrally located made it easy for the customers to access. Still continuing with his afternoon Door to Door service, the customers found a one contact point and more options to choose from in mornings and evenings. Very soon the helping and the serving hands increased as his nephew Mr.Uttam J Mayekar and then his son Mr.Sudhir V Mayekar joined him. After his second son Mr.Anil V Mayekar joined him they decided to spread their wings and serve more people in different areas. Lalbaug, Borivali & Thane Branches were added later.
