Individualized Eye Care


Already with two busy, high-demand offices at Harvard and Davis Square, the four decades old family-owned business launched the third location just over the bridge from Boston to offer the widest possible selection of eyeglasses while maintaining that same professional service that has generated so many loyal customers over the years. Though it may be one of the largest optical care facilities in the Cambridge area, customers can still expect a highly-trained team of knowledgeable staff ready to find customized solutions for each and every eye.

The company has stayed in business for over 50 years by offering clients superior eye care from examinations to eyewear. The Central Square Cambridge team has experienced optometrists that are all highly skilled at finding that perfect set of contact lenses for even the most difficult-to-fit eyes. As with the other locations, we accept many insurance plans.
