—Alexander Bristol, President
In the Spring of 1982, Bristol Optical, a family-owned eyewear manufacturer, opened it's doors to the world of optical labs. Nestled among the bustling city life of colorful Miami, we thrived on offering a unique line of specialty lenses, aptly named Bristolite. The community of optical labs embraced our innovative products nationwide, and for this, we will always be grateful.
In 2014, seeking a larger audience, we added to our brick & mortar building with a larger warehouse, lab equipment and a new home on the internet. The expansion allowed us to gain retail customers as well as maintaining our bread & butter wholesale accounts, and the ability to offer better prices and a greater variety of products.
