Cherry Optical, Inc. has become the charter member and first to support the new Elite Visionary Sponsor Class of NYSSO! Pay attention to what that means to us as licensed professionals: An independent, non-branded surfacing and edging lab, has come out to support our NYS education programs, statewide. This is NOT a branded, large manufacturer, turned lab, turned online eyeglass dispensing entity. Cherry Optical, Inc. hires smart NYS-licensed Opticians, has a product to fit most niches that you may not know are even available and does exceptional lab work. Visit their website! Thank you Cherry Optical, Inc. for sustained support of a NYSSO that is for Opticians and by Opticians.
