LAFOLLETTE (WATE) — Several years of hard work and some superior interior designs have earned the LaFollette Eye Clinic the honor of being named one of “America’s Finest Optical Retailers” of 2015. This honor comes from a national magazine for American eye care professionals, INVISION.
The magazine searches the nation for the top ten facilities in eye care. The Lafollette Eye Clinic received a perfect score for interior design and came in third place.
Judges raved over the facilities design theme “Celebration of Vision,” saying it could give Disney a run for its money for the “happiest place on earth.” It’s been less than a year since the clinic moved to a new 10,000 square foot facility and location.
Dr. Andy Howard and Dr. Elizabeth Howard, owners of the practice since 2002, wanted to create a place that would keep local residents in the area and save them from traveling for their vision care and eyewear.
“We wanted to create a true destination for East Tennesseans who value not only their vision, but also their overall health,” says Dr. Andy Howard. “We’re truly grateful for everyone that played a role in helping us achieve our ‘vision’ and this dream.”
Other 2015 honorees include practices and stores in Oakland, Calif., Westlake, Ohio, Las Vegas, Nev., Wayzata, Minn., Cambridge, Mass., Paris, Texas, Rockville, Md., Madison, Wis. and San Diego, Calif.
