To Remain Independent
As the only exclusively uncut laboratory in the U.S., we cater to you - dispensers committed to their customers and craft. We have been called renegades by some and crazy by others. Perhaps, we are a little of each because we take being independent seriously, without taking ourselves that way. Years ago, in deciding to turn down a Varilux deal requiring us to recommend a single brand over all others, we sacrificed profits for principles. Loyalty to you will always come before loyalty to any manufacturer.
To Earn and Keep Your Trust
We recognize accurate and consistent lens processing is essential to your business and is therefore our most fundamental business requirement. However, our mission only begins there. At Laramy-K Optical, we believe relationships are built on trust, which is why treat you as partners and are proud to call many of you friends. We realize that we can only succeed, if you do, making your business needs and ultimately your customers' needs our primary concern. Moreover, we strive to be a valuable resource for the entire independent optical community.
To Innovate and Improve
We believe we are the best at what we do and we are constantly in search of ways to innovate and improve. To meet the needs of our customers, Laramy-K was one of the first independent labs to commit to in-house AR and we continue to lead the way in digital freeform surfacing. To that end, your input, suggestions, and feedback are always welcome, encouraged, and necessary. We are not afraid to try new things to find a better way and will strive to be attentive to your needs, even if they are out of the ordinary.
In the sometimes maddening optical world, laughter often saves the day, or at least helps take the edge off.
To Be Grateful
Not a day goes by that we are not grateful for the blessings of our profession, the strength of our crew, the support of our families, and the friendship of our customers.
Thank you for being part of it.
