Durham Tech Optical Shop
The Optical Shop serves Durham Tech employees and current students with low-cost prescription and non-prescription eyewear. The client must provide a current, written prescription from an eye doctor in order to order prescription glasses and sunglasses. Students can save approximately 40 to 50 percent over retail optical shops. Contact lenses are also available.
The Optical Shop has a wide selection of frames from brands such as Helium, Timberland, CoverGirl, Michael Kors, Flexon, and Adrienne Vittadini. Sunglass brands include Guess, Kenneth Cole, Swarovski, Diesel, and others. All lens options are available including non-glare coating, progressive lenses, and Transitions.
The Durham Tech Optical Shop is located in the Nathaniel B. White Building (Building 1), room 1-143.
