Mary inherited her passion for stylish glasses from her mother, a fashion icon in her own right. While her father owned two optical shops, Mary expanded her reach to a 30-year accessories career, leading her to the world of eyewear. Her excitement to style patients in new glasses is matched only by her love of her two grandchildren.
