The oldest and greatest optical company in American history has pioneered optical and eyewear innovation for centuries. AO’s founders believed everyone should have access to eyewear, not just the elite, and changed history by bringing spectacle manufacturing to the US. Since then, AO has originated sunwear styles worn by pilots, Presidents, and NASA space crews.
For almost two centuries now, AO has stood as a symbol of American ingenuity, and they’re just getting started. In their state-of-the-art American factory, AO produces the quality, classic eyewear that defines True Original style.
