Monday, November 2, 2020 12:30 AM In the first days of the coronavirus pandemic, as states and municipalities began issuing shutdown orders, optical retailers and optometric practices across the country went into shock. With many offices closed and eyeglass shipments disrupted, the situation was chaotic. “When everyone literally had the rug pulled out from under them, no previous systems you had in place were going to be helpful when you’re winging it,” recalled optician Ruth Domber, who co-owns 10/10 Optics, a popular optical boutique and optometric practice in New York City.

Monday, August 10, 2020 12:31 AM NEW YORK—We hear the term “above and beyond” being bandied about a lot these days, especially in light of the pandemic as it pertains to frontline health care “warriors” and essential workers who take care of the everyday tasks to keep the world humming. But there’s another definition of going above and beyond and it has to do with much more than showing up for work every day. It’s about giving 110% to the job, mentoring colleagues and those just starting out, and finding ways to be innovative and pivot at a moment’s notice, all in the name of eyecare and eyewear, and everything in between.
