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.

Three Rivers Optical wins the OLP Lab Innovator of the Year award

2014 Lab Innovator of the Year

We are the proud recipients of the 2014 OLP Lab Innovator of the year award. It's a great honor to be recognized as a wholesale labratory that demonstrates the unique products we have developed, the way we have marketed them, and our exemplary dealings with our customer base.

We have been called the bedrock laboratory model for our industry, and while we have continually grown and developed our products, abilities, and technology to best serve our customers, it's you that really makes us who we are.

We would like to thank everyone who has made our designation possible--while we may be receiving the award, it's our customers, our vendors, our suppliers, and most importantly our families who make all of this possible. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

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 premium non-glare lenses and edged work. We can deliver not just throughout the U.S., but all over the world. With the goal of being a partner in your business, we always like to know our customers as well as we can. Our account managers are trained and well-versed optical professionals themselves, ready to help educate, consult with, or actually assist your business as your needs dictate. 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, honored by the Optical Lab Association by being named one of the Top 25 Labs in the country. In 2014, we were winner of the Optical Lab Products Magazine 2014 Lab Innovator of the year and selected as the Unity Lab of the Year.

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.
