Campus Optical, the not-for-profit shop selling glasses and contact lenses at SCCC, is back in business. Tucked just off to the right as you enter the Broadway-Edison building from the north, Campus Optical reopened after enjoying its first remodel in 15 years.
As a not-for-profit entity of SCCC’s School of Opticianry, all proceeds from the shop go to supporting the local program. Senior students of the program also work in Campus Optical several days a week, providing them real-life experience working in a licensed Opticianry. The shop also employs an independent Doctor of Optometry to give eye exams by appointment.
Campus Optical has always been open to students, staff, and the public. It will now be open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm, offering the community a full range of optical services from eye exams to lenses, while preparing SCCC students for a fulfilling career in Opticianry. It’s an exciting business model — go and see for yourself!
