[optique] (s.xiii2/4)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,379a optikos; Gdf: ; GdfC: 10,236b optique; TL: 6,959 obtique; DEAF:  obtique; DMF:  optique; TLF:  optique 1; OED:  optic a. and n.; MED:  optik a.; DMLBS: 2039a opticus ]

The attestations of DMF, Gdf and TL (for French) and the MED (for English) suggest that in medieval times the adjective only seems to have been used in combination with nerf/nerve and sinew. The single A-N attestation confirms this.
