Our Story

“Our Mission, To Serve Those that Have Served Us by Providing our Nation's Veterans, Active Military, and Their Families with Quality Eyewear at an Affordable Price”

Founded in 1991 by a Vietnam Veteran, Superior Optical Labs, Inc. is an Ocean Springs, Mississippi based wholesale optical laboratory focused on providing quality eyeglasses at an affordable price to our customers. Since 2005, through our contracts with the Veterans Administration (VA), we have been proudly manufacturing eyeglasses for our nations Veterans. In 2017 Superior was acquired by a
Service-Disabled Navy Veteran, Mr. Derek Bodart, with the goal of further expanding the company’s focus on providing exceptional eyewear at affordable prices to veterans as well as active members of the military community and their families.

Under Mr. Bodart’s leadership, Superior has made significant investments to further increase production capacity and ensure rapid turnaround of all orders with a relentless focus on quality and service. This includes the implementation of digital lens manufacturing technologies and an expansion of our production facilities. Mr. Bodart also actively recruits veterans to work in our lab and to provide them with a supportive workplace environment. As a result of this, we are very proud of the many veterans that work at Superior and honor them for their service to our company and to our great country.
