Our Story

For over 65 years, Longe Optical has proudly been serving Northeast Indiana residents' eye care needs by providing the highest quality products along with amazing customer service at competitive prices. We are proud to call Fort Wayne our home, and over the decades, we've grown to four convenient locations, so you never have to travel far to reach us.

High-tech Labs

In 1949, founder E. J. Longe revolutionized the eyewear buying experience, by offering the area's first same day service and glasses at unheard-of prices. Today, Longe is once again reinventing what you've come to expect from glasses with our on-site all-digital lab. We've invested heavily to deliver you the best cutting-edge high-definition (HD) lenses you'll find anywhere!

We produce all of our HD digital lenses in our state-of-the-art optical laboratory right here in Fort Wayne. We were the first and are still the only optical company making digital lenses in Fort Wayne, and while most other optical retailers receive their lenses from labs, hundreds of miles away, you can know that your lenses are always being made right here in your backyard. Our laboratory technicians average over 20 years of experience and are skilled in creating customized high-definition lenses.

Uncompromised Quality Since 1949

From our original lab on Wayne Street to today's high-tech digital lab, Longe Optical is constantly raising the bar by delivering you and your family the highest quality service, the best selection of designer frames, and the most-knowledgeable independent optometrists and staff members you'll find anywhere!

In addition, we pride ourselves on providing a friendly and personalized level of service that is missing from many of today's big-chain eyeglass stores. We stand behind this promise with our "One-year Worry-free Guarantee" that ensures a completely headache-free experience.

So come to one of our four convenient locations and see for yourself the Longe Difference.

Giving Back

We believe it's critically important to give back to the Fort Wayne community. We frequently perform free vision screenings for schools and non-profit organizations to ensure that everyone has access to the best-quality vision care and that no one goes without seeing.

We are also proud to be the official eye care provider of the Fort Wayne TinCaps and lead sponsor of the Fort Wayne TinCaps Reading Program. Seeing well is critically important to reading well and performing well in school. As a sponsor of the program, we contribute to the program prize offerings, provide discounts to over 100,000 children throughout Northeast Indiana, and perform vision screenings on special Reading Program days at Parkview Field.
