What Are You Wearing?: Van Brunt Optical Haus, Costa Mesa, California

Laura Van Brunt / Owner and Optician

Laura Van Brunt has been working in the optical industry for over 20 years. She got started working for OSA in 1994 when it was owned by Larry Sands. “I came from Sunglass Hut where I had been since high school. I was destined to always be around eyewear and sunglasses.”

She’s lost count of how many pairs of eyewear she has but rotates among three pairs a season.

FRAMES / Salt Brody in Matte Earth Grey

LENSES / USO Ultimate HD progressive with Digital AR, although she also favors Shamir Auto III with Zeiss Pure Coat AR.

“I love the bold P3/Panto shape and wanted something darker for the fall/winter. The Matte Earth Grey is a rich, gorgeous color with just the right amount of boldness.”
