George and I have lived in WNC for 23 years, and are happy to call West Asheville home. We moved here because at the time our son had asthma and was on a breathing machine 4 times a day. When we moved here, he no longer needed that machine and became a very outdoors kind of guy. Our children have gone through the Buncombe County School System and are both very successful adults, whom we are very proud.

We opened the Optical Shoppe in 1998 and we have been a part of the West Asheville community this whole time. We live here, eat here, shop here, and we make a practice of living local. Both of us are licensed Opticians with over 40 years of experience, and just love helping people every day. Every individual person has different needs, especially when it comes to eyes. This is part of our passion… researching the issue, finding a solution, and bringing your vision to where it should be!
