Our Story

In 1989, Dr. Howard Harrison and Dr. Andrew Chesnick joined their independent eye care practices to form State Street Eye Health Associates at its current 33 Broad Street location. The two Doctors of Optometry shared the same vision of providing the highest level of service and care to patients, and selectively employing only experienced optical professionals who were committed to delivering a patient-focused experience. This formula proved to be highly successful. The practice aggressively grew each year, largely from positive word-of-mouth.

In 2013, the practice became the third location of Vincett Eye Care Associates, LTD., an independent optometric group owned and managed by Dr. William K. Vincett Jr.  As part of the transition, Dr. Vincett and Dr. Shirley Salomon joined the professional team, and the practice became known simply as State Street Eye.

Many exciting developments occurred in 2017, when State Street Eye patients gained access to an expanded team of eye care professionals and a second location in which to receive care. Dr. David M. Soll, Dr. Azadeh Karimi Kelly, and optician Lori Epstein (formerly of Visual-Eyes) joined the professional team — and the family eye care practice NEWTONeye, located in Wellesley Hills, became the fourth location of Vincett Eye Care Associates, LTD.  It  will soon be called State Street Eye, Newton-Wellesley, and is an option for patients who prefer the convenience and expanded hours of a suburban location.
