FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orlando, FL June 10, 2011 - Eola Eyes, Downtown Orlando’s premier eye care practice, has relocated to its newly renovated office at 519 North Mills Avenue. This space represents a merger of new, progressive, state-of-the-art technology with the comfortable, warm, personal technique the practice has been known for since its inception.
The Mills Avenue building was completely remodeled and is unlike any eye care or medical practice in Central Florida. The design team, led by Edward Woodill of Orlando-based Studio3 Design, took the 1960’s built structure that had fallen into disrepair and transformed it into a modern office—a gallery of eyewear and local original artwork--that embraces key features of mid-century design. The project is already garnering local and national attention.
Dr. Brighid Williams and Dr. Kerry Giedd originally opened Eola Eyes in a historic Thornton Park house-turned-office in 2003, only to have their building devastated a year later by hurricanes. This prompted their move in early 2005 to a similar historic home located on Jackson Street. In 2009, Dr. Nicole Beedle joined the practice and despite the economic recession, Eola Eyes continued to grow and soon needed additional space.
The new Mills Avenue office is approximately 4,300 square feet and has allowed the doctors to significantly increase their capacity for patient care and parking compared to the previous practice locations. Eola Eyes is now complete with advanced digital technologies and expanded facilities including five exam rooms, high-tech imaging and testing equipment, and a more extensive selection of designer frames. Dr. Williams, Dr. Giedd, and Dr. Beedle
provide innovative eye care and premium optical products in their optical boutique, while maintaining the urban style and comfort their patients have come to expect.
