Press Releases Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Pearle Vision Partner on Optical Store Published 4 years ago on April 26, 2018 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Pearle Vision announced plans to open a new Pearle Vision EyeCare Center on the hospital’s main campus in Avondale. The EyeCare Center will provide neighborhood access to eye exams and an expansive collection of frames for adults and children. Since March 2016, with a vacancy next to the ophthalmology clinic, Children’s has been looking for a new partner to provide optical services to patients and neighborhood families. This collaboration helps address that need at a location that is four times as large as the previous optical retail space and more easily accessible to the community. “Just getting or replacing glasses can be so difficult for some of our families, and its importance to their vision cannot be overstated,” says Michael Yang, MD, director of Ophthalmology at Cincinnati Children’s. “We are so excited about improving easy access to glasses not only for our patients but also for residents of the Avondale community.” “At Pearle Vision, our mission is to provide genuine eye care in our neighborhoods,” said Pearle Vision General Manager Alex Wilkes. “The partnership with Children’s was a no-brainer for us. We both share a commitment to excellent service and providing our patients with a level of personal care that is second to none.” To meet the needs of the patients in the neighborhood, the location will have pediatric-trained optometrists with open hours for walk-in appointments. In addition, Medicaid will be accepted. Both adult and pediatric patients can receive care at the location. This new Pearle Vision location will be owned and operated by Cincinnati-based franchisees Ryan Yauger, Dr. David Tabeling and Dr. David Blair. The group collectively owns three Pearle Vision locations with over two decades of optical experience.
