Yes, it's been 40 years that Gulf Coast Vision has been in business. Gulf Coast Vision Center opened its doors in the Fall of 1972. The practice was a small office on Hood Drive in Ensley. Dr. Horace Linder, a native of Alabama and Dr. Richard Griffin, a native of Florida started this practice together after attending optometry school together at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee.
Their goal was to build a practice based on service. As the practice grew they reached out to communities such as Century and Milton with additional locations. Eventually, the need for a larger facility became necessary so in 1986 they opened a 5000sq.ft. office on 9 Mile Road. This facility would be state of the art with a full surfacing lab that allowed them to make glasses for their patients in the same day.
They continued to be active in the community and provide excellent service until 2005. However, after 33 years of practicing they chose to retire and turn the practice over to Dr. Douglas Reynolds. Recognizing and appreciating the level of individual care provided in the past it was Dr. Reynolds goal to continue with that same level of care. He has always chosen to have highly trained individuals be part of the practice and very proud of the care they provide each and every patient.
As a way of saying thank you to their patients, Gulf Coast Vision Center is having a celebration the entire week beginning October 22nd. At both locations they will be having discounts, specials and giveaways. So make sure and stop by either location during this week to check out their specials.
