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.
