We absolutely love being able to live and work in Sarasota, particularly Gulf Gate. Our community is so vibrant, and we love being able to share our favorite local spots with you. That’s why we started this “Love Local” series to highlight our favorite businesses!
We believe in shopping locally as often as we can. After all, shopping locally bolsters our economy and keeps Sarasota the thriving city that it is. When you choose to patronize your neighbors, you contribute to the well-being and sustainability of your community.
In this edition of our “Love Local” series, we’re highlighting an amazing small business in Gulf Gate that I’m personally a customer of — Only Eyes Optical Boutique!
What Makes Only Eyes Optical Boutique So Special
Only Eyes Optical Boutique has been serving the Sarasota area since 2019. They are a veteran, woman, and minority-owned business. Diana, the owner and optician, has more than 25 years of experience serving South Florida and helping people see better. She actually comes from a family of vision specialists and is committed to making sure her customers always leave happier than they were when they walked through her doors. When I stopped by to see Diana for new glasses, she made sure I was 100% happy with them!
Only Eyes Optical Boutique can accommodate all price ranges, and they carry the best selection of frames for the whole family. I absolutely love the frames I got from them!
Dr. Alex Brocato is Only Eyes’ board certified optometry physician. He offers comprehensive eye exams to assess your vision, screen for eye diseases, and assess your overall vision health. The thing that really sets Only Eyes Optical Boutique apart is that they take the time to understand your lifestyle and preferences so that they can tailor your prescription to your individual needs. Their approach is definitely not one size fits all!
Whether you’re looking for new contacts, glasses, or kids’ glasses, Only Eyes has got you and your family covered.
Tips for First-Time Visitors
If you’re visiting Only Eyes Optical Boutique for the first time, just relax and let Diana handle it. You can feel confident knowing that you’re in the best hands!
Just as you should get your hearing checked regularly, you should get your vision checked regularly. Many eye diseases can damage your vision with minimal symptoms, and you might not notice until the damage is already done. It’s similar to how hearing loss can sneak up on you over time. And just like your hearing, once your vision is gone, you can’t get it back. Make sure annual eye exams are a part of your overall wellness plan!
