Eric Brunell founded Brunell Southdown Opticians in 1965 at this very location. He was well known for his caring personality and skill in dispensing glasses. He was one of the pioneers in dispensing the new Varilux lenses.
Dr. Susan Brunell, his daughter, joined him in 1983 and expanded the practice to include comprehensive eye care including eye examinations, contact lens fitting, and ocular health assessment.
Dr. Susan Brunell studied biology at Washington University in Saint Louis (BA, 1977) and received a Doctorate in Optometry from SUNY College of Optometry in 1981. She was Assistant Clinical Professor at SUNY College of Optometry until 1990 and still stays abreast of the most recent developments in eye care, especially in regard to diagnostics and ocular health evaluation (glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy) and she enjoys fitting younger children with contact lenses.
She is like a primary care provider for the eyes and is ready and willing to explain your eye health to you.
