They’ve been in business since 1994.

After a foul-up with some paperwork years ago, Dr. Shari Gustin and her husband, optician Michael Gustin, had to establish some boundaries, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports.

They’ve been operating Webster Eyecare Associates in Webster, NY, since 1994, and Michael Gustin says, “We’ve made it on our service.”

Today they have 13 full-time employees and a full-service lab.

Competition has increased over the years with optical chains opening in the region, the Democrat & Chronicle notes.

But Michael Gustin explains: “The chains don’t deal with the best products on the market. The employees there don’t have pride in it. People want to be called by name.”
