Our Story

Coffman Outside in New Philadelphia, OH

Floyd Coffman started Coffman Optical in 1951, and the business has remained in the same location ever since. In 1962, Harold Meyers began working at Coffman Optical as an Optometrist. Harold was instrumental in getting his son-in-law, Gerald Ford, a job in 1965. It wasn't until 1982 that Gerald Ford purchased Coffman Optical, unknowingly starting a three-generation business. Matthew Ford began working as an Optician in August of 1984. Matthew purchased the business from his father on January 2nd of 2012.

Matthew's daughter, Sunnie currently works as our Insurance Billing Specialist. Zachary Ford also works alongside his father, Matthew, as an Optician. Because of its heritage, Coffman Optical prides itself in customer service rarely found today. We have a large selection of frames, lenses built for your lifestyle, expert frame adjusting, as well as many frame repairs. The bottom line is: We're not happy until the customer is happy. We thank all of our customers who have supported us through the years, and encourage new patients to call or stop in today!
