DAREN GRAY & SUNGLASS OPTIC STUDIO
My career in optics started over 20 years ago where I cultivated my optical skills in New England. While on a vacation to visit some family in Las Vegas I recognized an opportunity to create a more fashion-forward and technology-based practice. I quickly established a strong reputation in the local community as well as in the industry with my ability to identify the next fashion trend as well as partnering with the most exclusive eyewear manufacturers. I set out to create an environment where my associates and I could provide unmatched customer service and unrivaled optical collections. It’s important to me that my clientele receives compliments on their eyewear as a majority of my business is referral based.
In addition to helping brands establish themselves in Las Vegas, I continue to consult many premiere optical companies on developing lens technology, frame design, and help them create RX standards in the sunglass industry. I periodically test products before they are released to the public, which helps me select the most comfortable, optically correct, and fashionable designs.
I enjoy spending time in New York, Paris, Italy, Germany, and many other markets searching out sustainable, cutting edge designs. I have hand-selected, designed, and modified eyewear for many celebrities including Elton John, Bono, Shaq, Kix Brooks, Michael Clark Duncan, Charles Oakley, Don Cheadle, and members of Duran Duran.
