Your eye2eye: A Doctor's Vision
In the first installment of our new blog series, Your Eye2eye, Dr. Adamopoulos shares her vision for eye2eye Optometry Corner and what drove her to open her own independent eyewear boutique. Long before I graduated optometry school, I knew that I wanted to own a business. My family has always encouraged the entrepreneurial spirit, running family-owned Greek restaurants for many years. Independent business ownership is in my DNA. After graduation, I earned my stripes working for a large ophthalmology group. I then worked as independently next to a corporate chain, until I felt I had gained the perspective on the industry that I needed. There is hardly ever a perfect time to take the plunge of starting a business, but I just knew that I was ready to branch out on my own.
After much deliberation on a business plan, I started the process of searching for an office space. It took me a year to find and secure my current location and I was so thrilled to open my practice in Del Ray, Alexandria. I wanted to find an area with a strong community where I could grow, but also contribute. I wanted to offer products that you cannot find everywhere; quality eyewear made by independent brands with craft and care. I reached out to independent frame vendors, and made it a mission to stock their high quality, handcrafted, unique and built to last eyewear. Another priority of mine was to build a staff that share my passion for these same values - so I searched for the most qualified individuals in the field, and am proud to employ them at my practice.
Serving a customer base rooted in my community was and still is, a huge priority for me. I strive to be a community-driven healthcare practitioner, offering products and services to meet the needs of every stage of life - infants, children, teenagers, Moms, Dads, young adults, and aging eye care.
Continuing to provide excellent customer service, unique independent frame lines and quality vision care is what I hope keeps my patients coming back and also referring others.
