Welcome to Three Rivers Optical

Welcome to Three Rivers Optical, a family-owned and operated independent optical lab located in Pittsburgh, PA. In business since 1969, we have extensive experience working with independent eye care practitioners to develop the in-demand lenses, frames, and coatings of renowned brands, as well as our own private label. Our approach is to not only provide practitioners with the highest quality products, but to also offer preferential service, insight, and information to ensure that they are fully supported when choosing the best products for their practices and patients.

We take pride in the fact that we've been in business since 1969, developing optical solutions in the form of lenses, frames, and coatings for independent eye care practitioners. Our approach is not just on providing our customers the highest quality products, but also providing the customer service, information, support, and insight you need to ensure that your business will thrive both now and in the years to come.

Our Commitment to Eye-care Professionals

We operate with a combination of quality, commitment, and impeccable customer service.

Since our beginning, we have kept a commitment to eye care professionals of providing them with excellent products, education, and support. We never sacrifice quality for price. We hold ourselves to the quick turnaround times that our customers can expect, averaging two-day turnarounds, even for uncuts and edged work. We can deliver not just throughout the U.S., but all over the world. We always like to know our customers as well as we can, so our account managers are trained and well-versed optical professionals themselves. Finally, we are always looking for ways to improve the company, whether that is through our technologies and manufacturing capabilities, or in the ways we serve our customers.

Three Rivers Optical is a recognized leader in its industry and maintains national reach throughout the U.S., with customers based everywhere from Maine to California. We have been nominated as a Transitions Lab of the Year, and we were honored by the Optical Lab Association by being named one of the Top 25 Labs in the country.

We look to deliver complete, reliable products and support services for each and every eye care professional who works with us. Thank you for visiting us here, and we welcome you to learn more about all that we offer by browsing our site or contacting us today.
