About Clear River Optics

Clear River Optics is the result of many years of experience working within the low tolerance lens and optics industry. It all started in 1997 working as a machine operator at The United Lens Company in Southbridge, MA. Grinding and polishing precision flat optics was a hands on learning experience about the quality and care needed for performance optics.

A few years later working as a repair technician for Karl Storz Endoscopy, I developed a skill for cleaning, aligning and repair of optical systems. This lead to a lead position with a large optical filter manufacturer, formerly known as Thermo Corion. Here all my glass skills were used from grind & polish all the way to packaging of high-end optical filters.

In the summer of 2002 a life change was in order. I realized a passion for the mountains and that it was a reachable goal to move to Vermont. After a few interesting jobs I was hired on with Vermont Optechs, Inc, a seller of high-end used research microscopes. A basic microscope repair and an advanced microscope repair course were successfully taken with Rocky Mountain Microscope Institute and a career was born. After schooling and hands on repair side by side with Munday Scientific Instruments, a great deal of knowledge and service skills were passed on.

Now, 7 years later Clear River Optics is spreading it's customer base and enjoying a life in the mountains of Vermont.
