The team at Grandville Optical do more than care for eyes—they also care about their community. When owner and certified optician John Schlafley and optometrist Chad Jackson aren’t examining eyes or crafting glasses, they are organizing food drives and serving in local organizations. That same warm spirit fills their optical boutique, where they tend to clients in a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere. They display their carefully curated selection of designer frames—which includes names such as Marc Jacobs, Kliik, and Europa International—in elegantly spotlighted cases that stand against exposed brick walls.
While the office sports the cozy feel of a traditional coffeehouse, Schlafley and Dr. Jackson stock the environs with decidedly modern technology. They advise patrons of the latest advancements in lens manufacturing and treatments, and perform exams to diagnose potential issues and keep eyes healthy. Schlafley is also trained in a specialized soldering technique that allows him to expertly repair metal frames crushed by excessive squinting.
