Rx Optical, a leading eye care provider in Michigan, is deeply proud of their history in the Great Lakes state, and they pride themselves on creating exceptional experiences for each and every patient. They are also dedicated to promoting inspiring, sustainable careers for their team members.
Rx Optical was founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1947 to provide the local community with glasses frames and a variety of eye care services. From there, Rx Optical grew and expanded throughout the state of Michigan, and, eventually, across state lines into Indiana. Rx Optical now has 54 offices. Their team embodies true Midwest values and hospitality and has carried that with them to every location they have opened.
The Rx Optical team’s commitment to providing their patients with the highest level of care possible is a step above the rest. Both the staff and patients are treated as though they are one big family. Patients are more than just a number to Rx Optical, and they don’t open a new location in a new city or town unless they know they can provide true value for that community.
