Do good while you shop.

We are celebrating Illinois making Juneteenth an official state holiday. In honor of Juneteenth, this Saturday, June 19, STATE will be donating all online sunglasses sales from stateopticalco.com to the Open Your Eyes Scholarship (O-YES).

O-YES provides full scholarships to opticianry school and paid internships to high school seniors in black and brown communities, aiming to increase diversity in the optical industry. Learn more here.

STATE has been proud to donate a portion of sales from our STATE x Maxwell collaboration and are excited to be able to provide more funding to this amazing cause by pledging 100% of all stateopticalco.com sales this June 19th. We’ve recently released some exciting new styles, so go shop without the buyer’s remorse.
