    In the office, Valentine’s Day is super special for us. We opened cold…and literally cold on a snowy Valentine’s Day in 2005.

    Every year we chose 10 to 20 of our favorite patients and send them chocolates or candy with a handmade and handwritten note telling them how much we appreciate and love that fact that they trust in with their vision. This year we are gifting champagne gummy bears.

    We make a display with our pink and red frames with Valentine décor and offer gift cards as options for Valentine gifts.

    This year we are raffling heart-shaped sunglasses to the patients who check in on our social media. We will give a raffle ticket when they comment on a specific video or give us a spectacular review.
