Dick Story Optical

Our Story

Tucked away in a stretch of shops just across from Penn Square Mall sits Dick Story Optical. Our long-standing optical shop has been locally owned and operated since 1971.

Working under the store’s original Dick Story since 1977, the newest owner, Dave Trent, purchased the shop from his mentor in 1996. Dave has been in the optical industry for over 44 years and his expertise in the field is nothing short of extraordinary. In the 23 years since taking ownership of the shop himself, Dick Story Optical has grown exponentially.

The Art of Framing the Face

The one-size-fits-all adage doesn’t apply here. After over two decades in the optical industry, Dave’s passion for selecting optimal eyewear has never wavered. Selecting frames to compliment a particular face shape may sound daunting, but to Dave, it’s an artform. He is happiest when working with our customers one-on-one to hand-select the very best frames for their face.

Curated and Customized Eyewear

Today, eyewear is so much more than utilitarian – it’s an important accessory that complements your wardrobe, personal style and attitude. At Dick Story Optical, we cater to those with a discerning eye for quality and style. Our sophisticated collections are handcrafted by artisans from around the world. Along with classic and fashion-forward frames, you’ll find equal attention to optical science and lens technology. While our shop may be quaint, it is packed with an exquisite selection of both eyeglasses and sunglasses for you to look and feel your best in. When your new pair of frames feel less like a necessity and more like an accessory, we’ll know we’ve succeeded.
