We continue to build upon the foundation established by the Cotran brothers. We are constantly in competition with ourselves to uphold the “Fastest Lab In America!™” moniker, striving to provide the highest level of service in the industry.

We remain independently managed, supported, by the most dedicated customer service team in the business. We employ the most optically knowledgeable sales team to assist our customers and ensure we are easy to do business with. Don’t keep all your eggs in one basket. Send your insurance work to the big production labs but entrust us with the private pay, cash jobs you need fast!


Founded by the Cotran brothers, Robert, Ron, and Ralph, in 2008, US Optical was the second time the Cotran brothers revolutionized the wholesale optical lab world. Their first lab was Optogenics where they introduced overnight service for prescription lenses with non-glare coating. US Optical was designed as an evolution of the knowledge gained from this experience.

Built on the single idea of being the “fastest lab in America”, US Optical has the capacity necessary to ship out 90% of the orders received same day. The ability to service the entire country with uncut and complete orders from Syracuse, NY is what makes us the fastest. The widest variety of digital freeform progressives under one roof allows us to serve all segments of the market.
