Welcome to

Interstate Optical

Interstate Optical was founded in 1977 by entrepreneur Raymond Art. With roots as an optical sales rep, having personally experienced the daily needs of his customers, Ray left the corporate world to start a laboratory that put quality first and was passionate about serving the needs of its customers.

In 2008, Interstate partnered with Essilor to be able to provide their advanced technology and products, while maintaining their family business culture. Today, Interstate continues to operate with these same principles, under the guidance of Ray’s sons John and Rob Art, and grandson and namesake Raymond Art.  

Interstate Optical operates full service laboratories with all digital production and advanced finishing capabilities, with locations in Mansfield, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana.  

We welcome the opportunity to serve you!
