An Optical Story
With over 30 years of Optical experience combined, Laura and Jessica opened Van Brunt Optical Haus in March of 2016 because of their passion for handcrafted independent eyewear. Laura and Jess had been long time Opticians for other companies such as Optical Shop of Aspen, The Eye Gallery, Oliver Peoples, and had accumulated tons of unique frames in their own collections over the years.
The two envisioned opening their own shop, where they could carry independent brands that had a unique personality and told a story. They began looking for a space that would be a match for their concept, and found the design focused complex the OC Mix at SOCO in Costa Mesa, California.
In 2016, Optical Haus was born – where we freely curate a variety of unique and interesting brands that appeal to those with an independent spirit.
Since launching in March of 2016, the Optical Haus has become a hub for eyeglass and sunglass wearers looking for something different. They’ve developed a reputation for providing impeccable eyewear and service without the traditional stuffiness of a high end optical boutique.
Laura and Jess remain obsessed and enthusiastic about interesting and handcrafted eyewear, so whether you’re new to the eyewear scene, or a seasoned pro, stop in and say hello!
