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. Shirley Salomon joined the professional team, and the practice became known simply as State Street Eye.

Many exciting developments occurred in 2017, when optician Lori Epstein (formerly of Visual-Eyes) moved her store and staff from down the street to our 33 Broad Street location.

Additionally, the family eye care practice NEWTONeye located in Wellesley Hills, became the fourth location of the Vincett Eye Care Associates group and was renamed State Street Eye, Newton-Wellesley. Through this acquisition, the State Street Eye professional team expanded to include highly regarded optometrists Dr. Lynn Wittman, Dr. Mai Luu, Dr. David Soll, and Dr. Maria Mercuri.

Most recently in June 2019, Dr. Marcia Green, formerly located in Wayland,  transitioned her professional eye care practice to State Street Eye and is now seeing patients at our Wellesley Hills location.

More than 30 years later, State Street Eye operates on the same principles in which it was founded—a commitment to providing you the highest standard of vision care available.
