Is your business feeling the squeeze from Giant Corporate Optical?

We’re not a ‘giant corporation’, we are a local nonprofit organization, so you know exactly how your hard earned dollars are being spent… profits go directly back into your community by providing meaningful employment to people who are blind, empowering them to live more fulfilling and productive lives.

Lighthouse Progressive Designs

  • The Lighthouse Aurora – A general purpose progressive designed for today’s screen time, intensive lifestyles with improved performance in intermediate and near zones.  This fully digital back surfaced progressive design features a variable hard or soft design based on each patient’s unique Rx requirements.

Anti-reflective and Photochromics Made Easy:

Let’s face it, with so many styles and brands of Photochromic lenses and Anti-reflective coatings, it can get overwhelming to find the right choice for the best price. We’ve tried to take some of the guess work out of it for you. By choosing Photochromic or Basic/Premium AR on your order, you allow us to pick the best lens for your needs at the best possible price. This allows you to rest easy knowing your lens will have all the features you need and expect:

  • Basic AR coatings that are multi-layer, hydrophobic, scratch resistant and warrantied against scratching for one year. 
  • Premium AR coatings that are multi-layer, super hydrophobic, oleophobic and warrantied against scratching for two years.
  • Photochromic lenses that clear completely, turn quickly and are available with anti-reflective coatings. 

Of course if you would rather specify the brand yourself, you are always able to do so with Lighthouse Optical Lab Services.
