Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
