Tomasik Optical Celebrating 55 Years of Service in WNY
Tomasik Optical Celebrating 55 Years of Service in WNY

This year marks the 55th anniversary of Tomasik Optical, founded in 1958 by Ed “Tommy” Tomasik. And through five-and-a-half decades, there’s been one corporate vision that has always remained in focus, according to second-generation owner Michael Tomasik. “We want people to see better, feel better and look better when they pick up their new glasses!”

Both the local business and the optical industry have seen plenty of changes during those 55 years, according to Tomasik, who still operates the store originally opened by his father at 1258 Electric Ave. in Lackawanna. The business expanded to a second location at 3800 N. Buffalo Road in Orchard Park in 2007.

Staffing the two locations are Tomasik, his wife MaryJo, and David Kuntz, former owner of Hoerbelt Optical in Lackawanna. Professional eye examinations are conducted by Dr. Mark Sorrentino. In addition to glasses and eye exams, Tomasik Optical also offers a wide variety of sunglasses and contact lenses, including the increasingly popular multifocal contact lenses.

“We strive to provide every person who walks through our doors with a large variety of different, elegant and beautiful frames, many of which they won’t find anywhere else,” said Tomasik. “Our styles range from classic or contemporary to sporty or vintage. We've hand-picked over 1,000 frames from all over the world for our customers to choose from. If we don't carry the frame you’re looking for, we will personally order it for you in the size and color of your choosing. We understand that glasses are not only a medical device to help you see better, but also an accessory for you to wear in style and confidence in order to look your best.”

As a small business owner, Tomasik is also a huge proponent of buying local and supporting family owned businesses here in Western New York. 

“Western New York is the place we proudly call home,” said the owner. “The Tomasik family lives local and shops local. Not only is it more convenient to shop locally, we find these shop owners to be more friendly and helpful. We are greeted with smiles because they are truly happy to see us, and that is how we treat our customers as well.”
