Jon Paul Cartier – Owner

The Guilford Optical Shoppe is owned and operated by licensed optician, Jon Paul Cartier. With more than 25 years experience, Jon brings a wealth of knowledge to his practice.

Established in 1975, the office was originally named Cartier Optical of Guilford. It was founded by Ernie Cartier, Sr. (Jon’s father) and Kenneth Hebert. Soon after opening, Jon’s brother, Ernie Cartier, Jr. would take the bus from school to the shop and worked as an apprentice optician. Jon enjoyed visiting the shop as well as a young child.

In 1979 the shop moved to a larger space. In 1981 Ernie Sr. sold his half of the business to Kenneth, and Kenneth owned the business until May of 2014. In 2014 Jon Paul Cartier became the proud owner of the Guilford Optical Shoppe.

Jon specializes in frame selection and adjustments, mounting and the customization of lenses.
