Ray-Ban Custom-made sunglasses, AmberMatic lenses (Autumn Gold), Ray-Ban replacement parts, Glass lenses in prescription or non-prescription glasses, large frames for wide faces, cable temples (earpieces), Military Issue Randolph Engineering Custom-made sunglasses, special lenses for pilots, fishing, driving, shooting, skiing, cycling, traditional larger frames, replacement parts, polarized lenses--we have all of these things and more. We've been in business since 1967, have sold hundreds of thousands of Ray-Ban custom-made sunglasses and prescription glasses, and even more Randolph Engineering custom-made and stock sunglasses. We try you do things your way, give you what you want - not what the manufacturer decides you should have. We know what most people want in glasses that have certain jobs to do, in both prescription and non-prescription glasses. In spite of what manufacturers think, one size does not fit all.
We've been providing sunglasses and prescription eyewear to customers the world over for over 43 years. We started the business in 1967 in Houma, Louisiana while our founder was taking flying lessons and working in the oil industry as an offshore Well Logging Engineer. He couldn't find suitable sunglasses for flying and working offshore at a reasonable cost, so he did some research and found some really nice sunglasses for a fraction of the cost of the name brands. Since 1967 we have continued bringing functional eyewear to our customers at reasonable prices.
Our founder is a pilot, fisherman, sailor, water skier, motorcycle rider, model airplane flyer, target shooter, hunter, ham radio operator, backpacker, and engages in lots other outdoor activities, although age is slowing him down a lot these days. We know eyewear from having used the products we sell. We don't have to read notes or look up anything when you contact us for advice, we have been there and done that many times. There is almost nothing we haven't heard about eyewear or sunglass problems.
We offer custom-made prescription and non-prescription eyewear, made to ANSI standards (American National Standards Institute), for a fraction of what you'd pay locally. Prescription or non-prescription eyewear made to your specifications.
Lots of temple choices on metal frames, especially on Randolph Engineering frames.
Several glass lens choices, in regular sunglasses and prescription glasses. Glass is a superior lens material offering high scratch-resistance and superior clarity and filtering. We have always specialized in glass lenses, but as time has gone by plastic is now the dominate lens material, primarily because of weight. Nationwide, plastic lenses are 85%+ of the business. While we handle all kinds of plastic lenses, glass is getting harder and harder to find. Most labs have quit offering glass completely, and many manufacturers have trimmed down their selection of glass and expanded their plastic offerings.
Over the years we have offered a lot of top quality eyewear from Randolph Engineering, Serengeti, Ray-Ban, Vuarnet, Bolle and others.
We have also been a dealer for Boker knives, an old German manufacturer that has not only kept up with the times, but taken the lead in knife technology, combining old world craftsmanship with modern materials.
