Hello Hazemaster...

The Hazemaster from American Optical, revives another highly sought-after style from the AO archives of the 1960s. It was specifically designed for outdoorsmen, fishermen, hunters, and marksmen, featuring a sweat bar and unique yellow Hazemaster lenses that cut through fog, mist, or haze. The total absence of the blue end of the spectrum from the Hazemaster lens produces a crisper outline in outdoor haze. Autumn foliage viewers favor Hazemaster lenses because the reds, ambers and yellows of fall leaves are much more vivid with blue tints absent.

The AO heritage began in 1826, when William Beecher, a Connecticut farm boy, came to Southbridge, after an apprenticeship in Providence, Rhode Island, where he learned the jeweler's trade.  This trade he practiced in Southbridge for seven years before his fateful encounter with a pair of typically crude imported spectacles.


"I can do it better," said William Beecher to himself  and then he went to work.   

The American optical industry was born at that moment. William Beecher fostered an enduring precept for the company that was to grow into the American Optical Company.
