About Wolcott's

With over 65 years of business,
we’ve worn a lot of glasses.

Our History

Founded in 1945, Wolcott Optical was the product of post-war American values. It was during this era that the nation was re-built on the principles of hard work, commitment, sense and dedication. We at Wolcott’s believe that these founding ideals are what allowed the company to thrive in the post-war economy, and continue to prosper now, a generation later. Today as the premier eyewear store in Salt Lake City, UT, our family owned optical dispensary maintains the traditions of our legacy: classic values of quality, integrity, service and satisfaction that the customer deserves. With the best selection, unparalleled service, and only the finest quality products, Wolcott Optical remains an icon in the Optical Retail industry.

Our Mission

Wolcott Optical is dedicated to preserving the legacy and history on which the company was built. The foundation of Wolcott’s is based on a commitment to service, a relaxed environment, and a vast selection of quality products to ensure unparalleled service to the customer.

Charming smile aside, Steve is a mover and a shaker. Originally born in San Rafael, CA, he has lived in Panama, Honduras, and the great state of Montana before settling in Salt Lake City, UT. Certified with the American Board of Opticianry, and backed with 15 years of industry experience, Steve is Wolcott’s go to guy.


Known for his clever witticisms, Eric is a visionary. Although he would primarily like to spend his time rehearsing with the self proclaimed “greatest rap group since the ’85 Bears Superbowl”, he can usually be found at Wolcott’s carefully building and repairing the glasses of the world.


Although Ron’s childhood modeling career never quite panned out, his talents have not gone to waste. He is dedicated to preserving the history of Wolcott Optical, while continuously working for future enhancement. Ron’s success comes through his devotion to quality, eye for style, and of course, his youthful wit.


When Janet was four, she asked Santa for a piano and a doll. At twenty one she asked for a job, and that’s where Wolcott Optical came into play. She never expected to make an entire career out of bookkeeping for the “family business”, but since that fateful Christmas wish, she’s never looked back (and she still has the piano).


Angela has been in the optical industry for 8 years. She loves being an optician at Wolcott’s. Her favorite thing about her profession is to work with customers, finding frames that allow them to look their very best and make them feel good. She’s been called the “energizer bunny”.


Shannon’s optical roots date back to 1981, and in that time she has done it all, from lowly “dye girl” to district manager to optician. After gaining priceless experience at various other optical shops, Shannon has decided to call Wolcott Optical home for good.


Julie left behind her childhood dreams of being a world class ballerina to pursue a career in the optical industry. A Wolcott “veteran”, Julie has been with the company for 10+ years, but can still occasionally be caught daydreaming of tutus and pointe shoes.


James was the first of the second generation to fall into the Wolcott’s tradition. With regret, we lost our good friend, brother, partner and master optician in 2010 to his long courageous battle with cancer. We miss his wisdom, his optical savvy and his mischievous smile. See you on the other side Jim!
