With an innovative approach to frame board management and popular consumer brands,
we provide independent eye care professionals with eyewear products
and business solutions to help deliver excellent patient care.

Quality Eyewear


Our eyewear is designed in the heart of New York City
with trend-setting styles crafted from the finest materials.
With a portfolio that's balanced with leading consumer
brands and a diverse proprietary collection,
we've got something for every face, style, and budget.

  • Licensed Brands

    To us, licensing doesn't just mean putting a brand name on a frame. We work hand-in-hand with licensors to craft quality eyewear that truly aligns with the ethos
    of each brand.

    Our licensed collection includes: Anne Klein, bebe, CALVIN KLEIN JEANS, Cole Haan, Draper James, Joseph Abboud, and JOE Joseph Abboud.

  • Proprietary Brands

    With a refined approach to frame design, our proprietary collection features an assorted selection of clean, modern, and timeless styles perfect for men, women, and children who want fashionable, quality frames at affordable prices.

    Our proprietary collection includes: Evolution, Genesis, Kilter, and Sunlites.



As an independent eye care professional, you're taking a lot
of risk when you buy frames upfront. We reverse that risk
by giving you frame board samples at no cost. That means
you don't have to pay for the frames until they sell,
and you make a profit from the very first frame.

As a VSP Global® company, we're able to analyze VSP® Vision Care claims data to see how various styles are performing.
This takes the guesswork out of frame board management and helps extend the product lifecycle. It also allows us to
share with our customers trends that are happening in their region so they can see how their practice might grow.



Because of our unique business model, we're fully committed to the success of our customers. Each partner practice has
a dedicated account executive who can help ensure their product assortment meets the needs of their patients.
And since our account executives work at our headquarters, they're available to schedule calls when it's most convenient.

  • Same-day Shipping

    Our network of labs ensure that your patients won't have to wait for their prescription. Plus, all orders placed before 4 pm PT will be shipped the same day.

  • Free Returns

    Not happy with a frame? You can return or
    exchange it for free at any time.

A quarter of a century ago, VSP asked independent optometrists a simple question: How can we better support you? The resounding answer was for help easing the financial risk in eyewear dispensing. Altair was created to reverse this financial burden by providing no-cost board samples, and high-quality brands at affordable prices.

We've grown from a small operation to one of the top five eyewear manufacturers in the United States1. Much has changed since we were first founded 25 years ago, but what remains the same is our steadfast commitment to providing opportunities that support the success of independent optometry. And we're excited to see where the future will take us together in the next 25 years and beyond.
