Hi-Tech Optical Glasses in Saginaw Michigan

Our History

In 1940, Columbus based White Haines Optical Co. opened an office in Saginaw, Michigan, and moved to the Christy Way location in 1971.

In early 1987, a group of local investors teamed up to purchase the Saginaw office from White-Haines, and in doing so, formed Hi-Tech Optical, Inc.

Hi-Tech Optical, Inc. is currently owned and operated by Thomas M. Ryan.
