Mr. Brophy began his Optical career in sales and spent six years covering multiple territories across the country. In 2006 Mr. Brophy Co-founded Perfect Optics, a wholesale optical laboratory focused on freeform and digital lens technology in mass manufacturing.

The entrepreneurial mindset and excitement to disrupt is magnetic, yet their disruption levels up the entire industry and they’re hyper focused on education and the patient experience, vs just for disruption’s sake. I’m excited to be a part of this thriving organization and will work to expand and scale an already industry recognized stellar commercial organization.”
