Why Shop Local?

Bob and Niki Pino combined their passions for vision care and art, founding An Optical Galleria to offer exceptional eyewear and eye care services.

Meet the Founders

Bob Pino: An Optician with over 43 years of experience, Bob started his career at 16, working for independent opticians in Washington, DC, and as a high-end eyewear sales consultant. His extensive knowledge and award-winning skills make him a master at creating custom eyewear that others wouldn’t attempt. Bob takes pride in helping people look good, feel great, and see clearly with his expertly crafted glasses.

Niki Pino: With a degree in specialized technology, Niki began her career designing campaigns, posters, and logos for corporate businesses. While raising their two sons, Anthony and Chris, Niki and Bob envisioned An Optical Galleria. Today, she oversees operations at their three locations, designs all marketing materials for An Optical Galleria and Hook Optics, and continues to pursue her passion for creating unique and inspiring works of art.

Our Journey

  • 2002: The first An Optical Galleria location was established.
  • 2014: Seeing a need for quality eyewear and emergency replacements in Ocean City, Bob and Niki opened their second location. Their son Chris, now an excellent optician like his father, manages this store, helping hundreds of people replace lost glasses quickly.
  • 2018: An opportunity in Easton led to the opening of the third An Optical Galleria location.

Introducing Hook Optics

In 2020, after many high-quality sunglass brands were acquired by industry monopolies, the Pino family decided to create their own brand of premium polarized sunglasses—Hook Optics. With a commitment to producing superior products, Hook Optics has gained recognition, especially within the fishing community.

Behind the Scenes
