OUR
STORY
ALWAYS AUTHENTIC,
HONEST, AND TRUSTWORTHY

Since 1974, we’ve helped our customers lead better lives through better vision. As a Michigan-based company with over 80+ locations in nine states, SVS Vision has one of the largest selections of the latest designer frames and contact lenses, and utilizes the most advanced technology to offer the most experienced eye care in the industry. With our laboratory and corporate headquarters located in Mt. Clemens, Michigan, SVS Vision proudly supports the local economy, crafts quality lenses and is known for affordable prices.

OUR
MISSION
ALWAYS IMPROVING.
ALWAYS GROWING. ALWAYS FAMILY.

Since people are at the heart of everything we do, our mission is to passionately deliver leading eye care solutions to every customer through transparency, innovation and expertise. Through the power of better vision, we hope to inspire our customers, associates, and partners within the communities we serve to be anything but ordinary.

OUR
PROMISE
Perfect Vision for
Every Occasion.

In the nearly 50 years since we opened our first retail office and laboratory in Sterling Heights, Michigan, we’ve continuously improved our eyewear to better serve you, while exceeding expectations. But what has remained constant is our dedication to providing outstanding eye care, quality products and reasonable prices. Growth should only come from satisfied customers, and we’re proud to say our expansion has always complimented our first-class service. It’s the continued commitment to our customers that has allowed us to maintain our exceptional standards without compromise.

GIVING
BACK
Helping the communities we
serve is our greatest privilege.

We partner with various organizations, charities, and social programs, including:

Racquet Up Detroit

SVS Vision believes in Detroit. Racquet Up Detroit is an out-of-school youth development program that uses the sport of squash – in combination with fitness, academic support, community service, college exposure, summer opportunities, and mentoring – to make a difference in the lives of Detroit youth. Since 2010, we have helped Racquet Up Detroit to enable over 500 students to receive eye exams, protective eyewear, and to support their academic success on and off the court.

Kids See Free Promotion

SVS Vision believes in kids. In 2019, SVS Vision locations in the Grand Rapids and Ohio communities provided essential eye exams and glasses to children 18 years of age and younger for free.

Toys for Tots

The employees of SVS Vision believe the success of children starts at home. That’s why each holiday season SVS Vision employees team up with Toys for Tots to provide toys to children in our local communities.
