Optical Academy – On-site, mobile optical program

MTA Benefits is excited to announce the launch of Optical Academy – a full-service mobile optical shop that can travel to local associations throughout the state. Optical Academy's mission is to provide the best eye care and eyewear at a fraction of the price.

Optical Academy's prices are as much as 70% lower than retail. Here are just a few examples of the significant savings members will enjoy with this new program:

  • Single lens with frame – $29; average retail starts at $119
  • Progressive (no-line) bifocals – $60; average retail starts at $200
  • Bifocals (with line) – $20; average retail starts at $89

Full price list

Local presidents can arrange for OA to set up a shop in one of their schools for members and their families to have their eyes tested or to purchase glasses. Students can have their eyes examined too. On-site visits can be scheduled during school hours, in the evenings or on Saturdays.

To arrange for an on-site event, please contact Abby Ayoub at 800.530.2730 or e-mail her at Abby@Optical-Academy.com. If a local is planning a membership meeting and would like Abby to make a presentation, contact Cynthia Odoms at 617.557.6690 or codoms@mtabenefits.com.
