The Story of Mike & Martin
Since 1950, delivering on our motto of “Quality Eyewear From People Who Care” in the optical industry.
Mike Martin Jr. grew up in a family that has been in the optical business since 1950. His brick and mortar stores consist of “high-end” designer brands and the very best in lenses. Having gained expertise working in their own state-of-the-art in house lab, Mike became passionate for the very best in lens optics. His unsurpassed knowledge of quality frames has come from years of experience.
Take these facts for instance:
The eyeglass industry is primarily dominated by one big corporation, which owns the majority of the eyewear industry, from countless brand names to retail chain stores as well as vision insurance plans.
That’s not good for anyone, except of course that one big corporation.
Mike Martin is a visionary and these facts weighed on him until they pointed him in the direction of what the eyeglass industry needs … CHANGE!
Fast forward two years and Mike & Martin Eyewear was born.
Now, some words from Mike Martin Jr.
I came up with the idea of “subscription based prescription eyewear”, simply because I’ve heard my customers for years say "I wish I could have 3 or 4 pairs, but I just can’t afford them”.
You wouldn’t wear the same shirt every day, yet most people wear the same pair of glasses every day.
I believe glasses are a necessary accessory that should be both functional and stylish. Mike & Martin has a passion for quality eyewear, crafted of the finest materials, including Italian Mazzuchelli acetate and stainless steel. These raw materials are used to manufacture Mike & Martin eyewear, allowing us to cut out the middle-man and offer you the highest quality for the best price available anywhere.
How It Works
The best way to build your eyewear collection
Start by choosing a frame and lens type. You can either purchase outright today with “Buy it Now”, or choose a “Subscribtion Plan” to start building your Mike & Martin collection. If you choose a subscription plan, you choose to pay for your eyewear with easy and affordable monthly payments.
Single vision premium HD prescription lenses are included for free with the monthly subscriptions. Progressive (no-line) bifocals and polarized lenses incur a one-time upgrade charge at checkout, with subsequent months at the original plan price. You can change your prescription or share your plan, it’s up to you! All of your eyewear is yours to keep forever, as this is NOT a rental program.
We have been able to achieve the lowest prices and highest quality by directly sourcing from the manufacturers and elminating the middle-man markups. Having our own in-house state-of-the-art lens finishing lab means we control everything from frame design to your prescription lenses. Using only the finest Mazzuchelli Italian acetate, stainless steel and the very best in lens optics, we guarantee exceptional quality for an affordable price.
