Our founders, optometrists Dr. Dhavid Cooper and Dr. Guy Hodgson, started as partners in a chain of successful optometric practices in Houston, Texas. But they dreamed of something bigger. They wanted a way to provide patients with a better selection and more competitive pricing than they could offer in their brick and mortar practices.
With the Internet just gearing up for e-commerce, the timing couldn't have been better. The doctors assembled a small team to launch FramesDirect.com, doing most of the hands-on work themselves. In fact, Dr. Cooper designed and coded the original Website!
In 2008, we started AFEyewear.com to serve the needs of military members and their families. We have grown this business and enhanced our customer experience by really understanding all the dynamics of how a military family works. How did we figure that out? Well we actually have several military spouses working here in several locations throughout the US and they have inspired us to serve our military in ways we never imagined.
