VS Eyewear is a family-owned and operated walk in retail and online store. Mike DeMasi the owner has over 30 years of experience in the glassworking and safety industries working as sales manager of one of the largest Glassblowing distributors in the USA. He was a key contributor with the expert assistance of Lewis Wilson, Kate Fowle and many others in starting the Artistic glassworking division of this company. Mike has since partnered with the Phillips family which has a history of more than 100 years in the optical business, to start his own company.
Phillips started producing Glasses for Bausch & Lomb in 1905. In 1914 Phillips Lens was founded, working out of the basement of their grandfather’s home in Rochester, New York. The company reworked the lenses that Bausch & Lomb rejected due to production errors and sold them back to Bausch & Lomb. When the ultex lens went off-patent in 1916, the company moved to Middlesex, New Jersey and started production of ultex bifocals, selling them to optical labs for prescription lenses. From 1916 to 2000, the Company made optical lenses for the military, semi-finished lenses for optical labs to make into prescription glasses and produced sunglass lenses and specialty bifocal lenses.
We partnered with a lab that offers full prescription options, so almost all work is done in-house. The prescription optical lab features some of the highest advanced technology, including a full line of CNC edging machines and an advanced CNC generator. Thanks to the commitment of the lab staff and an array of prescription generators, polishers, edgers and coating machinery, hundreds of pairs of prescription lenses can be produced a week. VS Eyewear distributes (both wholesale and retail) prescription safety glasses for the military and other safety markets. We’re also known as one of the leading sunglass distributors on the market, as well as a great source for reading glasses, computer eyewear, driving goggles, and more!
