For Your Eyes Only Optometry's cover photo

[02/15/19]   We're FAMOUS! Thank you to The Bay Area Reporter for mentioning us your latest article!

https://www.ebar.com/news/business//272242

"For Your Eyes Only Optometry, at 552 Castro Street, has been granted legacy business status by the city. The program is aimed at ensuring longtime locally owned businesses remain in San Francisco.

The late Dr. Kenneth Agues first opened the optometry practice in 1983. A member of the LGBT community, Agues treated people living with HIV and AIDS who were susceptible to an aggressive eye infection that led to blindness.

In 1991, Dr. Kathleen Kennedy, a straight ally, bought the business and has continued to welcome all clients to the practice.

"At For Your Eyes Only Optometry we love San Francisco and we especially love our Castro community," stated Kennedy. "For over 35 years we have proudly provided compassionate care of the highest quality to our neighborhood during times of hardship and joy."

Happy Birthday to one of our youngest and brightest, Giovanny! Thank you for all your hard work and the energy you bring to our office 🙂

February is Low Vision Awareness Month!

Here's eye-opening news: Currently, 4.2 million Americans ages 40 and older are visually impaired. Of these, 3 million have low vision.

Low vision happens when even with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, people have difficulty seeing, which makes everyday tasks difficult to do. Activities that used to be simple like reading the mail, shopping, cooking, and writing can become challenging.

If you feel you may have low vision, talk with your eye professional and schedule an appointment!
