From our beginnings in 1955 to our latest expansion, our history is what adds that little touch that makes us who we are.

Design For Vision opened its doors for the first time in February of 1955. It was founded by Donald R. Manning Sr., who relocated to Bucks County from Jersey City, New Jersey with his new bride, Muriel. Don Sr. was coaxed into moving to the area by his Uncle George Wood, who worked for U.S. Steel. Don learned his trade in New York Citys optical labs in and in the U.S. Military. With his great personality, accomplished optical knowledge and help from, soon to be partner, Joe Cole, Design For Vision was created.

For many years the Design For Vision in Morrisville was the busiest optical house in Lower Bucks County. Although Design For Vision initially catered to unions and their families, their customer base became diversified. People routinely came from over 75 miles away to receive the great service, the quality eyewear and good conversation.

In the mid 70's, Design For Vision decided to capitalize on its success and open a second location on Woodbourne Road in Langhorne. Initially this location was managed by Donald R. Manning, Jr. He learned the trade from his father, working as a teen at Design For Vision in Morrisville. After a promising three years, the Langhorne office was turned over to Carol Manning, who apprenticed in Morrisville, as well. In the mid 80's the Langhorne was taken over by Ronnie Wilkinson, who runs the office very successfully today. The store has since moved to its current location in Langhorne Square on Route #1.

Opened in 1985, our New Hope store became our third location. For the past 21 years it has been managed by Carol Manning Loblein. Growing along with the New Hope area and with Carol's experience, charm and outgoing personality, this location is extremely successful.

Our fourth location was opened in Newtown in 2001 at the request of many of our customers. Newtown was an instant success due to its great location, selection of eyewear and expert staff. This location is managed by Robert Loblein, who is a Grandson of the founder and has over 8 years in optics.

Design For Vision is proud of its quality selection and professional staff. All of the eyewear is fabricated in our state of the art Morrisville lab. We are always investing in the latest equipment as well as high quality technicians. Design For Vision is family owned and supervised by Donald R. Manning, Jr., who easily carries on a familys tradition of excellence.
