SportRx Optical Lab
At SportRx, we love what we do and we like to have a little fun on the job. But when it comes down to business, we take our optics very seriously. One of the things that set us apart from the rest is that we own and operate our very own optical lab. Not just any lab. A state-of-the-art facility that specializes in sports prescription eyewear. Our laboratory contains top-notch equipment which allows us to drive innovative technology, pushing the limits of the optical industry.
Many doctor’s offices and competitors farm out their lab work to a third party, which means they’re not as involved in the development, technology, and production of their lenses. For this reason, optometrists often tell their patients that it is impossible to have their prescription put into their favorite brand of wrap sunglasses. This is a common misconception that is usually due to the limitations of the lab they use, as well as their primary focus being regular ophthalmics and not sports prescription eyewear. Having our hand in every step of the production process, along with our sports-specific focus, frees us from these limitations and maintains our position at the forefront of the industry.
When it comes to technology, the SportRx lab is second-to-none. With digital wrap compensation, 3D CAD and MEI machinery, optical coating chambers, and digital lens surfacing, we’re constantly working to push the envelope when it comes to making sports wrap sunglasses with even the most powerful prescriptions.
Aside from cutting-edge technology, the human element to what we do remains very important to us. We are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and quality assurance. We don’t like the word “no,” and work hard to find a solution for everyone. We literally have engineers named Hans working on your lenses to make sure we can eliminate as much wrap distortion as humanly possible. What’s more, the opticians here on staff work closely with the opticians in the lab, facilitating a team effort toward solutions to even the most difficult prescriptions.
Bottom line, from start to finish, SportRx is involved in each step of the production process, working to deliver a superior product that will help people see better while doing the things they love.
