Positive Eye Ons Optometry opened in 1989 with the idea that fine and exotic eyewear could be dispensed in an atmosphere free of all pretense of a "stuffy" doctor's office and the "typical optical store." The cliches of "white lab coats" and "pocket protectors" in the medical profession weren't in tune with the pulse of creating cutting edge eyewear designs. A fun, upbeat, and unconventional boutique seemed more appropriate for our funky Melrose location. We felt compelled to let our professionalism, expertise, and quality of service be the basis of our customer care. With our approach to personal attention and detail, we have developed a unique international clientele ranging from television, film and music videos, to our wonderful local neighbors. As we pride ourselves in making each customer feel special, we have been able to establish an ongoing and loyal relationship with people all around the world.
In 1994, adding an Optometrist to our staff created what is now Positive Eye Ons Optometry. This enabled us to expand our services to include comprehensive eye examinations, contact lenses and general eye-care. It is our mission to continue to provide unique and quality eye care to our existing patients while welcoming new friends and customers to our Positive Eye Ons Optometry.
