Eye-catching Accessories By Dr. Keylee Brown

Artistic and inspired ODs and optometry-supporting organizations offer some great options

Dr. Brown

Keylee Brown, OD, has always liked eye-related jewelry. When she found something she liked and wore it to a conference, people would ask her where she got it. So she asked herself: “Why don’t I see if others like these as much as I do?”

Late this summer, she opened Key Optique, an online business where she curates every item, from eye- and eyeglasses-inspired stud earrings and other on-trend jewelry. She is adding tie clips and socks to her collection in advance of the holiday gift-giving season.

Dr. Brown, who is an associate in a practice in northern Georgia, has been running the online business primarily on her own. She inventories her stock and ships everything as the orders come in. Orders can be placed directly on the website.

Dr. Brown earmarks some of the profits from sales to support causes; at the moment, she is supporting the student VOSH program at New England College of Optometry.
