Benson Optical began as a small finishing laboratory in 1981. Recognizing a need for a unique optical experience in the North West they expanded in 1985, to function as a full-service lab and optical dispensary. Incorporating Sight Testing into their business model more than 20 years ago, Benson Optical is still operated by its original owners. Nearly 40 years later, they remain dedicated to a tradition of family-oriented service, high-quality eyewear and excellence in Opticianry.

They are proud to be a part of the vibrant downtown area and are pleased to be active members of the Terrace & District Chamber of Commerce and the Terrace Downtown Improvement Area.

Meet Brad & Carolyn Benson

Brad and Carolyn Benson have helped many people experience their best possible vision over the decades. Doing business in the area for so many years, some of our earliest clients now bring their children and grandchildren into our store.

These relationships are very important to us, we feel privileged to play such an important role in our clients lives. Being a part of a small community we are humbled by our friends and neighbours who are always willing to lend a hand when needed.

We started in this business due to our passion for the community, coupled with our entrepreneurial spirits. Since then we have grown and overcome many challenges, both in our own community and the optical profession as a whole. We constantly evolve and adapt to incorporate new technologies and upgrade our skills and knowledge. We are deeply obliged to our loyal customers who have helped us be progressive and viable throughout these years. Their support has made it possible for local dollars to stay within the community.

"Service you can trust" is not only our slogan, Brad says, but also the attribute that directs our daily decisions and actions. Enhancing our clients’ lives through better vision is at the heart of the entire team.

The natural beauty of the area contributes to the quality of life in Terrace. There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors without travelling far. Spending an afternoon enjoying Ferry Island feels like a holiday, says Carolyn. We also note that there are many innovative independent businesses that contribute to Terrace’s quality of life and unique culture.
