The vision for Fine Arts Optical started in France over 100 years ago.  In 1930, the Ascher family purchased the company with the goal of crafting the highest quality of frames and lenses.  Fine Arts Optical also has the largest collection of vintage eyewear in the world.  Many of the vintage styles are still being produced today in the company's factory in France.  The latest styles of frames can be crafted from bamboo, buffalo horns, ram horns, metal, and plastic. With its own custom prescription lab, Fine Arts Optical can make lenses from start to finish.
