About Us


The Bent Lens started as a boutique optical in August of 1982. Ahead of the times when it came to exclusive, unique eyewear in Montana. Nearly 33 years later, we remain an iconic optical boutique in the same location. In our commitment to exclusive eyewear and sunwear we are sought out by vendors who pair their product with our intention and national reputation.




Our passion for the optical industry flows from frames to lenses in an industry of constant technology changes and consumer needs. We take pride in being experts in this industry, but don’t take it lightly. There are many hours of education and training to remain informed and knowledgeable.We promise to make the commitment of time and care in frame selection and lens selection for your lifestyle, needs and desires.


Our client list ranges world-wide from simple single vision to sport-specific complex prescription needs and/or desires. With over 36 years of experience, we are that optical that rarely says NO, to what you want.


AND…. We will take the time with you and authentically make recommendations all the time honoring your decisions.


We promise your experience with us will be enjoyable.
