Overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Optical is one of a few of American companies that hand make eyeglasses in America. Since 1992, the Lau family has designed and make exceptional eyewear that is sold around the world from this facility in Hayward, California, including one of our favorite lines, Kala Eyewear. We recently visited the Golden Gate Optical facility and saw the quality that goes into every step of their manufacturing process for ourselves. Here is Kennedy & Perkins co-owner Dart Mesick between Terry and Daniel Lau of Golden Gate Optical. You can see the Kala line of eyeglasses at any of the six Kennedy & Perkins locations.
