We Improve Lives by Helping People See Better!
At Eyemart Express, we do more than just employ great people—we invest in them. Our optical training and development programs are designed to empower our associates. We strive to develop insightful, informed leaders at any career level both in the workplace and in the community. We’ve curated a culture of pride based on a defined set of principles: trust, compassion, openness, opportunity, and Kaizen. Simply put, we believe that developing good people creates the best environment for our business, our products, and most of all, our customers.
Since opening our doors in 1990, we have been driven by a singular focus: to make quality eyewear that is affordable, quick, and stylish. As a doctor-founded company, we understand that our success and innovation stems from maintaining great relationships with optometrists and optical experts across the country. We also believe in building a strong relationship with our customers and use their feedback to develop top-selling private label brands from lab to shelf. Through state-of-the-art lab technology, merchandising and online marketing, we continue to bring excitement back to the eye care industry.

Really helpful staff. Knowledgeable about product but leave you enough time to look for the right pair on your own. Love that you get your glasses so soon.
