About Our Practice

General Optical Company is a family owned company that was started in 1953.  We made safety glasses for General Motors and other local plants in Genesee County.  As time went by an Optometrist and Dispensary was added to the practice.  Plus, we still have a full service lab to accommodate our patients.

We have grown to three locations in beautiful Genesee County.  We still have our original location in Downtown Flint, location in Burton, and a location in Fenton.  Our Optometrist occasionally rotate between offices to cover doctor absences, but usually have a main store that they work.  Since the demographics for each location vary, there is the opportunity to see patients with all sorts of eye conditions.
