Charleston Flavor

There's no place on earth like Charleston. Originally colonized by early American pioneers, it is the oldest and second largest city in the great state of South Carolina. Charleston, SC was founded in 1670 in honor of King Charles II of England (Long Live the KING!!) With a rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, and mannerly people, Charleston is one of the most unique cities in the United States.

The Charleston culture hails from a blend of traditional Southern U.S., English, French, and West African elements. The Local Charleston, SC crowd exhibits these influences in their art, music, local cuisine, and fashion.

Drayton Hall 2007.jpg

One of the many reasons for Charleston's appeal is the historic architecture of its various neighborhoods. This is thanks to the city's antebellum architecture and surrounding plantation landscapes. It feels as if time has been suspended with architectural icons such as The Drayton Hall,  the city’s greatest example of Palladian architecture and one of the plantation houses open to the public.

A War Between Brothers

No American city has helped define what it means to be an American as much as Charleston has. It was a center of conflict in both the war of independence from the British crown in 1779 and a War for economic freedom in 1830. One location where all of this can be learned and felt is Fort Sumter and it's a panoramic view. Fort Sumter clearly shows how unique the peninsula of Charleston is.

Dear Friends,

Due to the COVID-19 virus and per the CDC recommendations for optometrists to stop seeing patients for routine eyecare, we have decided it is in the best interest of our patients, staff, and doctors to decrease patient interactions at this time. We will be in the office for patients in case of emergency or urgent eyecare needs to decrease patients using emergency rooms for these instances. This could change as things progress so please call the office before heading over. We will still be dispensing contact lenses and eyeglasses to individuals who have ordered them. Patients can stop in as needed to pick them up. For those patients that are running low on contact lenses or need to re-order, please consider using this website to order from our office. This would be beneficial to both of us during these uncertain times because lenses will be mailed straight to your house and you would be supporting us during this temporary shut down. Thank you for your consideration. Please stay home and stay safe!
