Wainwright Eye Care was established August 2012 with the goal of providing excellent eye care services to Manhattan and the surrounding areas. Our first office is located next to the East entrance of Walmart, a second location of Wainwright Eye Care opened in March 2019 in Grand Mere Village. Both locations are accepting new patients! The Grand Mere location offers a full service optical to meet any eye wear needs for anyone. Our staff has many years of experience in optical and offer products unique to our area. For an eye exam, we recommend making an appointment to ensure we have time saved for you, however we are happy to accommodate walk-ins when our schedule allows.
