A History Made In Mauritius

We create our collection by using our beautiful, multi-faceted island as a source of inspiration. We provide an array of eyewear from casual, classic to sports sunglasses for men and women in a wide choice of colors and with polarized & 100% UV-protected lenses.


Helios Eyewear is a local factory brand located in the paradise island of Mauritius and founded in 2010 by Plastinax Austral Ltd.

We are the first and only brand of polarized sunglasses with the official label of Made in Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. We are also an eco-friendly eyewear brand and we provide internationally recognized qualitative eyewear at an affordable price.


Located in Mauritius, Plastinax Austral Ltd is an eyewear manufacturer specialized in plastic injection for sunglasses and optical frames with 300+ employees. The company started its operation in 1976 and since they accumulated a considerable amount of knowledge and expertise, they decided to create their own local eyewear brand for Mauritians, and this is how 12 years ago HELIOS EYEWEAR was founded.


Plastinax Austral Ltd is the leading manufacturer of injected sunglasses and optical frames in the Indian Ocean. The company started its operations in Mauritius in 1976 and has now 46 years of experience in the production of quality eyewear for major international brands. Plastinax Austral Ltd is owned by the ENL Group, one of the leading conglomerates in Mauritius.
