"Our staff adheres to the guidelines of the Vision Council of America, and takes it one step further; baby boomers want to make a statement, so we help them select multiple frames and create a personalized wardrobe for the eyes. Other than a wedding ring or a watch, what else do you wear everyday?" ~ Dr. Dawn Rakich, Therapeutic Optometrist
