This week we are excited to feature The Eye Place as our Retailer of the Week! We talked with Dr. Scott Sedlacek at The Eye Place in Olmsted Falls, Ohio about how his customers are loving our Chemistrie Clip
Question 1: How long have you been in business?
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Sedlacek says he has been in the optical business his
whole life. His first job was working in an optometry office when he was just 16 years old! Additionally, he has worked in an optometry office throughout his high school, undergraduate and optometry school years. Dr. Sedlacek graduated from the Ohio State University in 1998.
Question 2: What drew you into the optical business?
Dr. Sedlacek has always been interested in helping others and science. By majoring in psychology and physics, he was able to merge those two passions together. After working and learning in an optometry office for years, he decided to pursue his doctorate in optometry.
Question 3: How do you market the Chemistrie Clip?
The Eye Place keeps many promotional materials throughout the store for customers to browse through. These materials include our four-sided demonstration tower with two sample frames, sample clips and all of the lens options we offer for customers. Lastly, the associates at The Eye Place educate, demonstrate and offer Chemistrie Clips to all of their patients!
Question 4: How does your business get involved in the community?
Dr. Sedlacek is highly involved in his community! He volunteers at over 30 schools throughout the Northern Ohio area by engaging in several activities such as conducting vision screenings for over 1,500 students, talking to thousands of students at career days and participating in several PTA education presentations. Additionally, Dr. Sedlacek presents the Ohio Optometric Association's Real Eyes Programs each year to about 2,000 students.
On top of being heavily involved with the Ohio educational systems, Dr. Scott Sedlacek is an active member in the Olmsted Falls Chamber of Commerce and Olmsted Kiwanis Club. The Eye Place is a corporate sponsor for many coordinated events with other local businesses. Some of their participation includes, but is not limited to, the annual Heritage Days, Girl’s Night Out, the Homecoming Pancake Breakfast at the local high school and First Fridays which is an outdoor event that provides entertainment, food, music shopping in the business district during the summer months!

Question 5: What's something fun about the town where you are located?
“There are so many great things about Olmsted Falls,” states Dr. Sedlacek. "Olmsted Falls is a unique community that fuses the scenic, historic nature of the town's architecture with a fresh revitalized vibe that has blossomed over the past several years."
Question 6: What is some feedback you have received from your customers about the Chemistrie products?
According to Dr. Sedlacek, his patient’s are LOVING our Chemistrie Brand! Not only does The Eye Place carry the Chemistrie sun lenses, but they also sell Chemistrie Blue and our reader lenses! The Eye Place believes that there really has never been an affordable, quality reader clip on lens until Chemistrie. Patients have commented on how the fit of our frames are beautiful and fill a void that they were craving in eye wear! Additionally, the associates at The Eye Place suggest to patients to purchase two pairs of clear glasses and buy clips for both sets! This allows them to build up an eye wear collection instead of purchasing glasses than only have one style which customers love. Thank you Dr. Scott Sedlacek for taking the time to speak with us about your products and company! We loved learning more about your involvement in the community and how our products are benefiting your customers!
