America's Finest Optical Retailers 2015 by INVISION MAGAZINE
If there’s one thing INVISION’s 2015 America’s Finest Optical Retailers prove, it’s that there’s no single way to be the best at vision care. They do share a rock-solid commitment to superior service and products.
But beyond that, our 10 winners thrive in wildly different settings — from city streets to suburban strip malls and medical parks to small-town squares. Regardless of their location, each has found ways to create an independent vision care business with style and flair that’s theirs alone. Meet Eye Candy Optical from the Class of 2015!

This year’s No. 2 shop is a new business launched by two guys with MBAs and no optical industry experience. (No, not those two.) Steve Nelson and Anton Syzdykov had worked and traveled together for years in global marketing and retail development within the paint industry, but they saw a need in their hometown of Cleveland for a high-end eyewear boutique that didn’t feel clinical or stuffy.
1. Sweet stuff: Eye Candy turned to a local chocolatier for custom-made milk chocolate bars given in thanks when people pick up their eyewear. The candy theme also finds its way into the window displays, where — for example — Skittles and M&Ms separated by color helped draw attention to the latest frames from Theo.
