Four ODs repurpose unique locations into optometry office

Sometimes a local barbershop can be repurposed into the perfect optometry office. These four ODs transformed places that seem out of the blue into eye-catching offices.

A Sweet Spot for an Expansion

Rebecca Maida, OD, and her mother Linda Bennett, OD, were running out of space and the need for more space was critical. They found a 1,200 square feet ice cream parlor nearby, right by an intersection of two main streets and plenty of available parking. Paying homage to the original shop, the duo integrated the long countertop with typical ice cream parlor chairs into their design. Click here to learn more.

In addition to the large square footage, the drive-through area has been a popular spot for patients picking up contact lenses. Click here to learn more.
