MIT Optical is currently closed. We are in the process of moving the service to its new, permanent home within MIT Medical (Building E23) and plan to reopen this fall.
MIT Optical is a full-service optical store specializing in quality eyewear and frame repairs for the MIT community at a reasonable cost. We offer hundreds of eyeglass frames at heavily discounted prices, including major brands and designer frames from all over the world. We even have frames costing less than $100. We also offer a large selection of specialty eyewear for swimming, cycling, scuba diving, racquet sports, and other activities.
We adjust eyeglasses and repair minor problems free of charge for anyone who stops by.
Contact lenses are available through MIT Medical's Eye Service.
