Kensal Eyes is a much loved and respected family business with a long history in eye-care. Wojtek Wieczorek (DBO, FBDO), a qualified orthopist and dispensing optician, established Kensal Eyes a decade ago with the support of his wife, Ela. Today, their daughter,
Zuzia, plays a key role. A family-kitchen-table-competition came up with the name Kensal Eyes.
The Wieczoreks have been local residents for over half a century and are at the heart of their community, caring for generations of eyes. Wojtek has eye-care in his blood. In the 1950's, his father, a frame maker, and mother, a dispensing optician, worked from their front room offering bespoke service to appreciative clients. From there they moved to a shop in Warsaw's old town that is still run by the family today.
