Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Papeete modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Glasses (Prescription)

Cathedral Area

There are two eye glass places bordering on the Cathedral square in city center.

One is directly across from the front next to Foodie's Market.

The second is across from Foodies and to the left before you get to Air Tahiti office.

For more complex prescriptions like bi-focal, no line, sensa gray etc the glasses have to be made in France.  But for reading glasses and more straight fwd prescription they can be made in papeete.
