For Your Eyes Only opened it's doors in 1989 by Raleigh native and NC licensed optician, Doug Clifton. In 1992, Jennifer Williams (then, Jennifer Steinbrink) joined Doug and trained under him as an apprentice optician. Jennifer had just graduated from North Carolina State University with a BA in Business Management, not having any idea that she would one day own her own business. After apprenticing under Doug's expertise and craftsmanship, Jennifer obtained her North Carolina Optician's License in 1997.
In June, 2010, Doug, along with his wife Debbie, decided that after 38 years in the opticianry field, it was time to retire and "pass the torch" to Jennifer.
Having been with Doug for 18 years, Jennifer found it easy to maintain Doug's consistency in giving a light-hearted atmosphere to the For Your Eyes Only experience as an optical boutique that caters to the individuality of every customer. Jennifer's unique knowledge and experience in selecting, fitting, and dispensing of premium upscale eyewear, along with her attention to detail and "patience with patients" will continue to be provided to each and every For Your Eyes Only customer.
Our customers are truly part of our family!
