ClearVision Optical has been named by SmartCEO as a 2016 Family Business Awards winner. The honor recognizes the accomplishments of 30 of New York's top family businesses. This new prize marks ClearVision's second recognition by SmartCEO, after the company received the Deals of Distinction Award in 2015 for its philanthropic efforts with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI), a non-profit organization promoting the education of children in need. ClearVision Optical was founded on Long Island in 1949 by Fred Friedfeld, a Navy veteran, with the help of his wife Mimi. Since then, the company has employed four generations and more than 20 members of the founding family.
