Traditionally, words like handmade and heritage are applied to shoes and clothing, yet we seldom think of eyewear in those terms. The Steven Alan Optical collection aims to change that. Ours is a line of eyewear that is completely handcrafted, from start to finish.
The facility where the lenses are produced in Brooklyn, New York, perfectly balances high-tech production and hands-on finishing. Our lenses are carefully tended to from the first moment of production to the last polishing rinse by skilled craftsman. The lenses are cut, polished and inspected before they are ready to be mounted. These days we generally assume, if not expect, that even the simplest manufacturing is mechanized without any human contact. Steven Alan Optical is proud of the care and craftsmanship evident in each pair of our eyeglasses.
The factory in Brooklyn, NY where the lenses are made maintains the perfect balance of high-tech, cutting-edge production and old-world hands on finishing.
From start to finish the lenses are cared for by an individual craftsman who monitors each step in the process from edging, polishing and inspection for the highest quality and clarity.
