You do not need to specify parameter if you specify default when you define your stored procedure:
Simple example:
CREATE PROCEDURE test @optional_param varchar(10)="none"
as
IF @optional_param="none"
 SELECT * from t1
ELSE
 SELECT @ from t1
  WHERE col1=@optional_param
IF you have multiple optional parameters you will have to first build your SQL string and then use EXEC to execucte it.
