In 1988, I opened my first Pro Vision Center in South Paris, Maine and I am Proud to say we just celebrated our 30th Anniversary. Our second location opened in the Auburn Mall in Auburn, Maine in 1992 and we just celebrated our 26th Anniversary. Our third location is in The Maine Mall in South Portland and has been thriving there for 16 years.
It was my dream to provide the finest selections of eyewear and TOP-NOTCH service. I have been fortunate to have a dedicated staff that has been with me for many, many years.
I truly believe what makes all of our Pro Vision Centers unique is our quality eyewear, affordable prices and knowledgeable, friendly staff.
STOP BY AND SEE WHY WE ARE BETTER!
