Owned by Dr. Meg Richardson, the business offers a full-service optical department, glasses, contact lenses and eye exams. Richardson opened the shop with the hope of catering to children and families. Here’s a little bit more about her business.
Why did you start your business?
Business ownership runs in the family. My grandfather was also an optometrist who ran a small practice in rural Ohio for over 30 years. My father owned Camera World in West Racine for 25 years. I have been working up at Sears Optical at Southridge Mall for the last five years, and was ready to move my career to Racine where my house and family are. I had a lot of support from family and friends from the very beginning, which gave me the motivation and courage I needed to move forward with making Twenty Twenty a reality.
What makes your business special?
Why did you choose this location?
I did some market research when I was working on my business plan for Twenty Twenty. All of the other eye care establishments in Racine are farther east, and there isn’t much out in the middle/western half of the county.
What can your clients/customers expect when they come to your business?
We treat you like family. On-time appointments, thorough eye exams, clear explanations of insurance benefits, personalized help with selecting frames, clear and affordable pricing structures for glasses and contacts, a fun and friendly environment.
Twenty Twenty Family Vision Center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. They accept most major vision insurance plans and also accept patients who do not have health or vision insurance.
