OWNER | OPTICIAN
Dominic McCoy has 30 years of experience in the Optical industry. He has spent his career dedicated to providing clients with high quality merchandise along with personalized service. Early on he discovered his uncanny ability to select, design, and construct for his clients the glasses they have always wanted but have never been able to find. His knowledge of aesthetics (including skin tone, hair color, and face shape), proper fit evaluation, and optical science makes him the perfect guide for anyone on a quest to find their perfect pair. To all of his clients he quickly became synonymous with outstanding professionalism, customer service, and technical expertise. Dominic now uses these remarkable talents with Gregor Owen at CustomEyes, the stunning new optical boutique located in the exciting new South Front District.
Dominic is committed to providing each and every client with an exceptional eyewear experience. Nothing pleases him more than seeing the finished product and the joy and excitement his customers receive from their new eyewear. Pairing each individual client with high quality, beautifully crafted frames along with the best in Rx lens technology is his true passion.
Outside of his professional life, Dominic enjoys quiet evenings at home listening to music and cooking (his other two passions). He also enjoys live concerts, playing basketball, bowling, and an occasional game of chess. A beach bum at heart, he loves to get away to the ocean for fresh seafood and walks on the beach whenever life and schedule permits. He has found Wilmington to be the perfect home to realize his passions.
Dominic is a NC licensed Optician, certified by the American Board of Opticianry and the National Contact Lens Examiners, and is a member of the NC Opticians Association.
