Revant Optics Expands Business to Offer Replacement Lenses for Any Brand
June 6, 2017
(Portland, OR.) Revant Optics, the industry leader in aftermarket replacement lenses, is proud to announce the launch of ‘Every Lens, Any Brand’ — an expanded offering of over 60,000 SKUs of premium-quality replacement lenses for top brand name sun and Rx frames, such as Oakley, Spy, Smith, Ray-Ban, Maui Jim, and more. Additionally, owners of hard-to-find or discontinued eyewear styles can place their order via the Revant Custom Cut Service offering lenses made-to-order in the US for any brand.
Since its launch in 2010, Revant Optics has served over 500,000 customers in over 150 countries and was named Inc. Magazine’s 500/5000 list of “America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies” in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Revant attributes the steady growth to an efficient direct-to-consumer model that allows the brand to keep product costs low and invest in technology and innovation. Most recently, Revant expanded their in-house lens quality testing capabilities and invested in state-of-the-art lens edgers, allowing them to cut and deliver lenses straight from their Portland-based headquarters. Sunglass and prescription replacement lenses are now available for any brand offering full frame, half frame, wire frame, and select shield frame styles.
Revant is dedicated to excellence, innovation, and putting the customer first. The customer-centric ethos has a deep-rooted history with Founder and CEO, Jason Bolt. The lightbulb moment happened when he crashed his mountain bike and scratched the lenses in his favorite sunglasses. Replacing the lenses with the original manufacturer proved to be a challenge, so Jason took it upon himself to source lenses from an overseas manufacturer. With the order minimums above what he needed, Jason listed the excess lenses on eBay, and they sold overnight. At that moment, he knew there was demand for high-quality replacement lenses at a fair price, and Revant Optics was born.
Earlier this year, Revant took significant steps in business development, adding accomplished talent to their Board of Directors, including the former VP of Research & Development at Oakley, doubling their custom lens capability with additional in-house lens edging machines, and investing in advanced lens testing equipment. Optical quality is of utmost importance to Revant, and they hold each lens against strict optical standards — testing lens clarity, quality, and durability. All Revant lenses provide crucial impact protection, exceeding ANSI Z80.3 impact standards, while Revant Elite lenses exceed ANSI Z87.1 standards, resulting in lenses 10x stronger than glass, built to take on significant impact in the most hard-hitting moments.

“Seven years ago, I envisioned making quality replacement lenses in the USA for any brand of eyewear,” said Jason Bolt, Founder and CEO of Revant. “Today, I am excited to announce that dream is a reality. If you own sunglasses, you know — scratches happen. With Revant, you’ll get more than just a solution to that problem, you’ll get a high-quality product that you can trust and a phenomenal customer experience you won’t find anywhere else.”
This summer, Revant is on a mission to educate the consumer that when ‘scratches happen’, their favorite frames can be brought back to life with a new set of quality replacement lenses. Revant replacement lenses start at just $24/set and are also available in prescription via revantoptics.com
