Specialties

We make custom Rx lenses for specialized uses as well as standard lenses for fashion frames.  Our owner Bret Hunter is recognized in the industry as inventing the wrap frame lens technology we use for our sport lenses and safety glasses that gives the wearer unobstructed and distortion free peripheral vision while blocking wind, light, and flying objects from the side.  Our lenses are in use all over the world as we ship worldwide to meet our customers needs for Rx lenses for Road biking, Mountain biking, Motorcycling, Golf, Squash, Shooting, Fly Fishing, Running, Triathlon, Triathlon, Duathlon,  Swim goggles, Ski goggles, Car racing, Motocross, Nordic skiing,  and just about any other outdoor sport where eye protection and clear vision is essential.

History

Established in 1993


Our small shop was on 6th ave and Garrison for a number of years before moving to Tennyson street in the art district.
The owner Bret has a passion for unique frames and clear vision.  He travels the world to find unique styles (doesn't just order and resell from a catalog)  In fact on the last buying trip to Milan, Italy in 2011 he purchased many limited edition frames that you just won't find anywhere else.  We stock frames made from Canadian Maple, Synthetic wood, Aluminum, Stainless steel, titanium, carbon fiber, and more.  Many of them are works of art, but not at outrageous prices.  Bret's passion for his work shows in everything in the shop from the display cases to the methodical research and testing he performs on his sport frames and lenses.  We even have a house brand of frames for both sport and fashion.

Meet the Business Owner: Bret H.


Sports Optical is owned and operated by Master Optician Bret Hunter. It is a family and veteran owned & operated company.
Bret actually used his GI bill to help pay for opticianry school. He has worn glasses since the fourth grade and could never get good glasses for all his high action activities (he was a competitor in the X-games) Bret  actually had the idea for this company before he started Opticionry school. After he graduated, he found work at a high end optical store in the mall (not to be named). There were not many sports vision options there, so in March of 1993 he started SportsOptical. There were a lot of challenges to overcome. The technology for making prescriptions to fit curved frames just didn't exist.  In fact, the rest of the optical industry told him it was impossible, defied physics, and can't be done. The first few years he worked with the few insert systems and the flatter lenses that were available. Then he started experimenting and the magic started...

I have been going to Sports Optical since Bret first opened the shop on Tennyson. Whether its for mountain biking or the high fashion glasses I wore when running a club, I have always come away with finely tuned functional lenses and style that brings compliments everywhere I go. You can't beat the expertise and customer service you'll find at Sports Optical!

  • Under standard conditions, chlorine is a yellow-green gas, which is the second lightest halogen after fluorine. Chlorine is a toxic chemical element that always do harmful to our health, especially irritate our eyes. Coughing, vomiting and lung damage may be all contribute to chlorine. Yellow eyes i most possible to be caused by jaundice in blood. Chlorine is possible to lead to yellow eyes, but not forever. It is just temporary. Plus, chlorine can easily lead to allergy eyes, pink eye and red eye.

  • Jalapeno, an irritant, will of course make your eyes feel pain when entering into your eyes. What you do is right. First of all, you should wash your eyes with clean water as soon as possible. Then, you let the eyes recover by themselves. However, if you still worry about it or the symptom has not declined for a long time, you may go to see the doctor and have a careful check.

  • With time flies, the skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. So if we want to keep young and have fresh skin, then some remedies must be taken. Firstly, we can use an exfoliating facial wash to get rid of dead skin cell. Secondly, apply a moisturizing eye cream to the affected area twice in the morning and at night. Thirdly, Use facial exercises to help smooth out eye wrinkles, especially yoga facial mask. Finally, avoiding being tired and staying up. Women, especially aged women, try their best to keep good appearance. So good rest is quite good to prevent liners under eyes from coming into being.

  • Well, in my opinion, ear infection can not lead to black eyes. First, you should know that when blood and other fluids collect in the space around the eye, a black eye can occur. And generally speaking, black eyes are often caused by the injury to the eyes, face or the head. Also, air bag can also lead to injury to your eyes, leading to black eyes. But there is nothing to do with ear infection. So you do not need to worry about it. Generally speaking, ear infection can lead to eye infection, so you should be careful about it.

  • If you're going to buy regular non prescription sunglasses, I don't think you need to do it. However, if you need to order prescription sunglasses, you'd better see your eye doctor unless you take eye exam frequently.

  • You can surf some official websites of glasses boutiques, looking for discount or promotional news. Then go to the hypostatic stores to get the one you find online. Besides, there are a lot of online stores providing more choices for you. Generally speaking, there are more promotional activities offering a lower discount. In the meantime, you can also try them on and have the glasses with the same quality. One more thing I have to say is that some online stores are offering free glasses such as https://www.coastalcontacts.com/. These free glasses are aimed at new users and those who didn't buy anything on the websites.

  • So, it seems that there is something wrong when you try to put in your contact lenses. From what I know, there are two primary reasons, number one, you have a bad use of your eyes and don't take care of your contact lenses. The other one, it is possible that you have got trachoma, which is an infection and would make you have such feelings. Of course that would make you crazy, it's really torturous. It is surely abnormal which should be treated in time.

  • The principle of cleaning the foggy glasses is to remain the glasses bright and clean, not contaminated with grease and avoid scratching the lens. You can use a mild soap or special cleaning agent to clean it, wash it with water and then dry it with lens paper or soft tissues. Many people pick up the clothes or handkerchief to wipe the lens. This is a bad habit, because the rough material can easily scratched lenses. To clean frames between the slit, you can use a soft old toothbrush to gently scrub it and to remove the grime.

  • Macular degeneration is often called AMD (age-related macular degeneration), so the greatest risk factor of AMD is age. People who are over 60 have a higher risk of developing AMD. Macular degeneration can also be caused by some other factors. For example, smoking can increase the risk of developing macular degeneration. And a family history of macular degeneration, long-term exposure to UV rays, obesity and high blood pressure are all the factors that can cause macular degeneration.

  • Yes, hemorrhoid cream are considered to treat wrinkles. Although the cream is made for reduce the hemorrhoid. But it make sense to remove wrinkles of the skin on the face. However, there are different type of hemorrhoid cream right now. Some of them can't help reduce wrinkles. So, you shall consider twice before you buy. As far as i know, hemorrhoid cream label with "Canadian Preparation H with Bio-Dyne" may help reduce wrinkles. If it label shows "phenylephrine 0.25%" in ingredient, you'd better not use it since they are not the original type. Hope this can help you.
