the story behind eye&I
My name is Dr. Crystal Han and I am the head optometrist at eye&I.
I was born and raised in Bayside and I am excited to come back to my hometown and serve the community of Bayside.
When my husband and I decided to start our own business, we wanted to use my optometric profession as a platform for my passion for the arts. eye&I was created with this in mind.
Our main FOCUS is to provide our patients with great service and quality eye care and treat you like we would with our family.
In addition, with my passion for the arts in mind, we are a brick and mortar shop to showcase handcrafted items by local artisans so our patients can see the art around them and have a different experience in an optical setting.
Don’t forget we are also committed to express your “eye”dentity with eyewear. We tailor your glasses to your specific needs so that you can focus on your day to day lives.
your vision, our mission
Dr. Crystal Han and the staff at eye&I are passionate about our patients and we care to provide them with quality eye care and eyewear in an intimate and personable setting. We are always thinking of ways to improve the patient experience and offer a unique approach by combining our passion for the arts into the optical setting and hope to create a different platform for both professionals and artists.
