When you update your every day look, do you feel bella? Do you enjoy changing up your eye color whether you need a prescription or not? Chances are, you’re using the renowned product range from Bella Contact Lenses. But where do they come from? bazaar dishes with the man behind it all, Ibrahim Wehbe, the founding father of Optical Supplies Co. and the literal vision behind Bella Contacts.
He claims that during his younger years, he never wanted to be regular or ordinary in life. “I have always wanted to create something special and be unique”, and something unique he did create. After establishing Optical Supplies Co., he put his blood sweat and tears into his work fuelled by his need to create something even more spectacular. “Pursuing this vision was my passion to care for the most minor elements to succeed in building the company, and thereafter, our very own brand of contact lenses, the Bella.” Ranging in different colors to suit every complexion and personal style, Bella Contacts have proven to be a very thoughtful product that encourages people to play around with their style for whatever occasion! And they aren’t stopping there “I’ve had my objectives to expand my contact lens color creations worldwide, and it is my pride to say that it is eventually being conceptualized.” With vision this spectacular, it’s with pride that we wear them to see the world through multicolored lenses!
What is the most interesting part of your job?
I enjoy creating something that receives positive feedback- especially when it doubles my time and effort. I love getting positive feedback from consumers, from the market and from our competitors on how Bella Contact Lenses remain a favorite in the market. It’s an honor to be part of a team such as Bella that complements the aesthetic/cosmetic needs of every woman. This factor alone completes me and saying that what we offer is just interesting is an understatement – it’s fulfilling.
