Our Story

BCEC is the region's eye care leader. Our 10,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art, award-winning facility houses the region's largest eyewear selection in The Optical Shoppe. With a team approach to eye care, there are multiple ODs always on site to care for patients, and our affiliated partnership with ophthalmology allows us to provide the highest quality of patient care. Here, you'll practice full-scope eye care with every piece of diagnostic equipment at your fingertips. The practice has been named one of America's Best Practices by CooperVision, and we've received countless awards for small business achievements. With a fun, caring environment for staff, at BCEC hard work is rewarded.

LOVE Eye Care is the in-house nonprofit 501c3 organization that provides no-cost eye care and eyewear to local community members in need. With the help of thousands of people, the program also recycles eyewear to be reused by mission teams around the world. LOVE Little Eyes is the newest branch of the nonprofit which aims to ensure that every child in the county has an eye exam by the time they reach the 3rd grade.
