I had moved away from the area for over 15 years so now after moving back I have to find doctors, hair salons, etc. all over again.

Where do you usually go to get your eye exams and where do you buy your glasses? I was thinking maybe I'd just go to Costco or Walmart but curious where other people go.

I went to Dr. Shinners at Low Country Vision Center. I was pleased.

Draisin Vision Group in West Ashley! Voted #1 Optometrist in the Country. They are amazing. I am very particular who I go to since I had LASIK several years ago and they have great technology. For instance, they are keeping me under their radar because I may be showing the early stages of glaucoma. I went through pretty intensive testing and it eases my mind how advanced they are with their training and that I will be in good hands if my eyes do get bad.

My family goes to Carolina Eye Care, they have offices all around the area. We visit the Summerville office and see Dr. Whittington. I have an appointment with her today.
As far as frames and lenses, my family uses the in-house optical shop, I will try to save a little money and go to Lenscrafters for my frames and maybe the lenses, not sure yet.

Couldn't agree more, my wife and I love Ocean Eye.

For hair salons, I would have to recommend Mary at Vintage Hair Studio (or any of the stylists there). Its right next to Ocean Eye on Old Trolley.
