Our Story

The journey all started back in 1980. Owner / Optician Terry Bowman launched into the industry offering quality discounted eyewear at flea markets in the Philadelphia Area. After selling the eyeglasses he would then head back to his home in northeast philadelphia to manufacture the eyewear out of his garage. After business began to grow Terry decided to open up his first store in 1982, offering the same quality and discounted eyewear now in a brick & mortar location.

As years progressed, his son Jimmy decided to head to optical school in 2009 to get involved in the family business. After graduating with a degree in Opthalmic Science & becoming ABO Certified Optician, Jimmy found a natural love for the optical business. As he grew and learned the business, he wanted to offer Todays Eyewear to more than just the Philadelphia area. While helping run the business, in parallel he spent a few years creating an online optical store to launch nationwide! Knowing that the store focuses on customer care, superior optics and a great pair of eyeglasses he knew every customer and patient would get the same incredible care online that they would in the store!

After 46 years we can proudly write this story, in the same location we opened all those years ago!

Our Happy Customers

Amazing people and literal life savers!!!! I broke my glasses overnight and am blind as a bat without them. They were able to use my frames for a new pair of glasses and I was in and out within 10 minutes. The receptionist, Mary, was also very kind over the phone and could sense my stress and helped me calm down. Such kind people and I’m so lucky I’m nearby them for future exams!

I love and trust Today’s Eyewear so much, I come from Sarasota Florida (last 7 years). I have been coming to this establishment for over 20 years and trust only them with my eyesight. The Optometrist on staff is excellent as well as personable. The staff is beyond diligent with such awesome personalities. The eyewear to choose from is very extensive so it’s a one stop shop for the last over 38 years! I highly recommend you go here, you will not be disappointed!
