What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
In the optical industry since 1980 I saw a gap in the service aspect, often with the consumer not getting what they need or love. I want to assist in educating the consumer on what is available to them. Dispensing eyewear in a relaxing environment allows time to get the right product and fitting.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to see a client's face when I tell them they can draw a frame and I can get it made to fit them perfectly. I love it when someone sees clearly for the first time. I love it when clients learn I can have lenses made for their wearable device, athletic goggle & other new optical applications.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Without a doubt it's when a child saw their mom clearly for the first time and there were tears all around.
Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.

Though there are 115 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. In Philadelphia in 1972, a few friends had an idea to create an optical store that combined a friendly and open environment with a fair pricing structure and quality product. Today, they take pride in their continued commitment to value and customers.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Burberry, Prada, Ray-Ban, and more. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses—whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites—they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
