Liberty Sport was founded in 1929 as a manufacturer of plastic and metal ophthalmic frames. 

In 1978 we introduced the world's first prescription sport goggle under the Rec Specs line of protective sports eyewear. 

For over 30 years Liberty Sport has been at the forefront of a national movement encompassing health professionals, educators and the private sector to prevent eye injuries in sports and recreational activities.

In 2000, in response to the changing optical market, Liberty Sport sold its ophthalmic frames division to concentrate solely on the prescription sports market – designing and distributing protective sports and sun performance eyewear. 

Our dedication to research, engineering, and technology has placed Liberty Sport on the cutting edge of the performance eyewear industry.
