Meanwhile, back in Pittsburgh, Contact Lens Specialist Peter J. Lucas owned Lucas Contact Lens, and coincidentally, was married to George Ullom’s daughter.
It was here (at Lucas Contact Lens) where Nick Bender, current President of Price Optical, began his illustrious career as a Contact Lens Specialist. Nick worked there while attending school at the Optician’s Institute, and after graduating, began working full-time. He would also fly up to Williamsport once a week to fit patients with contact lenses at Price Optical.
In 1979, Dr. Thomas Gmitter joined the Price Optical team, and to this day, remains the optometrist at both Price Optical and Price Eyewear.
Price Optical continued to grow over the years, and in 1993, the current location at 567 E. Third St. was opened. The new store included state-of-the-art equipment and an impressive showroom layout. Because of its innovative design, Price Optical was featured in the October 1994 edition of Eyecare Business Magazine.
On February 19, 2003 under the Commonwealth laws of Pennsylvania, Price Optical became Price Optical Co., Incorporated, and Nick Bender became the President.
Since 1967, Price Optical’s mission has been to provide you with the highest quality eyecare. We offer second-to-none customer service and a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere. From cutting edge technology in contacts to iZon High Definition lenses and fashion frames from around the world, we are committed to bringing you the Finest in Eyewear.
