Celebrating 70 Years of Service

Since 1946, Kennedy & Perkins Guild Opticians has been a locally owned and family-run optical business providing greater New Haven and shoreline area residents with state-of-the-art optical lens technology and distinctive and exclusive fashion eyewear and contact lenses. For 70 years, each pair of eyeglasses is personally crafted by a trained optician in Kennedy & Perkins’ New Haven central lab. Professionally trained frame stylists help clients choose the perfect fit, shape, and color for their own personalized look and each store features eye examinations by an independent doctor of optometry.

Founded in 1946 by Richard L. Kennedy, Sr., after he returned from service as a Marine in the South Pacific, Kennedy & Perkins Guild Opticians is run by Richard Kennedy’s son, Richard L. Kennedy Jr. and his son-in-law J. Dart Messick.
