August 29, Pittsburgh, PA – Three Rivers Optical, a nationwide independent lab with the largest private brand portfolio and a leader in cutting-edge optical solutions, is excited to announce a significant expansion of its operations to accommodate the increasing demand for its innovative products and services. A new production line was installed last month, doubling job capacity. Combined with industry-leading turnaround times of less than three days, even more lenses will be distributed in a shorter time frame without compromising the quality that customers have come to expect.

Oliver Spandow, IDOC CFO and COO commented, “We are thrilled to see Three Rivers Optical continue to grow and expand the opportunity to delight more customers with our quality, service, and industry-leading turnaround times. Our ability to stay at the forefront of marketplace trends and new technologies makes us confident that the future of IDOC and Three Rivers Optical is very bright.”


Three Rivers Optical will now be offering in-house manufacturing of the full suite of Kodak products as well as Shamir’s Glacier Plus™ AR coating. The team at Three Rivers Optical is excited to bring these products in-house, alongside their private brand SEEMORE, for even better pricing and turnaround times for customers. Independent practices that frequently use these products will greatly benefit from these new offerings.

Kodak delivers lenses for everyone–all age groups, prescriptions, budgets, and more–and promises that every lens is the result of advanced lens technologies from a company with a long legacy of customer satisfaction. The Kodak Lens technology for producing customized lenses creates comfortable and clear vision for a wide range of patient needs and frame sizes.

The Glacier Plus™ coating from Shamir is a top-of-the-line AR coating that provides comprehensive protection from the various elements that glasses encounter every day, from dirt and dust to static and scratches, Glacier Plus™ coating keeps lenses clean and clear of distracting reflections. Adding Glacier Plus™ in-house completes the Shamir portfolio of products offered at Three Rivers Optical. View the full list of available products at
