You're IT Eyes on Elm!
Three questions with Dr. Victoria Considine, OD, owner of Eyes on Elm.
Why did you start your business?
I started my business because I am truly passionate about eye health and fashion eyewear.
I genuinely enjoy solving each individual's visual needs! Everybody has a unique situation, based on their individual daily life, career, activities, hobbies, vision and eye health. There are so many options with vision correction such as multifocal contact lenses, special progressive lens designs, blue light filtering glasses, or other computer eye strain treatments.
I also wanted to provide people with very high-quality frames, lenses, and thorough eye exams with the latest technology at a reasonable price. I have searched for a collection of eyeglass brands made in Europe, Japan, and the United States that are on-trend and also built to last. I want people to get compliments on their glasses for years!
I think it's important to be local so that people can stop in anytime for a glasses adjustment or repair or a quick question for the eye doctor.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business. “I wish I could…”
I wish I could make every patient and customer happy! I want people to be impressed with the level of service and product that they receive. Vision is used all day, every day, by most people and to be able to improve it in a huge or in even the slightest way, makes me feel great about what I do.
