If you have recently graduated or if you have years of experience working as an independent or with a large optical chain, then this could be the perfect answer to a successful future.

Professional Optical Inc. was incorporated by Master Optician Maurice Snell on July 1, 1976. He operated the business until his retirement in 1989, when he sold the company to me. In 1988, the annual sales, were at $352,000 and by 1995, it had almost doubled to $650,000 in sales for eyeglasses and accessories only.

Oklahoma's "Eyeglass One Ruling" prohibits an Optician from hiring an Optometrist, but the Doctor can operate independently next door to the Optician if there is a separate entrance to their office. Our location has over 3,000 square feet and can accommodate up to three refracting rooms if needed. Oklahoma retail stores such as Walmart, Sears, etc are forbidden to have an Optical Shop inside their locations, which is not the case in other states, solely to protect Optometrists in Oklahoma.

We currently employ three ABO Certified Opticians, have been voted "Best of Bartlesville" as an Optical Shop for 10 years consistently, are highly respected, and have a great customer base with excellent good will in the community. 

Bartlesville has a population of approximately 35,000 and is the home of ConocoPhillips, and only forty miles from Tulsa, OK. Currently, there are four practicing Optometrists that schedule exams months in advance. Dr. Bussey, Dr. Faulkner, Dr. Foust and Dr. Bennett are in private practice, and there are Ophthalmologists, who do not dispense eyewear, are refer most of their patients to us.

I am willing to sell my ownership with a simple contract at no interest and with reasonable monthly payments until the note is satisfied. This opportunity is great for a recent graduate or for fast entry without having to borrow on a high interest loan to get started.

Those interested may visit the store at 3928 East Frank Phillips Boulevard, Bartlesville, OK 74006. If you have questions or would like a personal interview, please contact Victor Cook at 918-331-5606 or
