Remodeling’s a Beach

Doctors spend four days, $2,000 to bring the beach indoors

Inspired by do-it-yourself (DIY) TV shows and a nearby Lowe’s, Home Depot and the Atlantic Ocean, Amanda Lee, OD, and Tammy Tully, OD, business partners in a Vision Source® practice in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, decided they could make over their optical for far less than the $20,000 or so they figured they’d pay if they hired the help and bought custom frame boards.

Read the three-part series written by Dr. Lee, detailing the DIY process of remodeling the optical.

Part One: The Inspiration

Part Two: Bringing in the Beach
