New Vi­sion eye care open­ing in West Ch­ester

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - BUSINESS -

New Vi­sion Fam­ily Eye Care will hold a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony with the West Ch­ester Area Cham­ber of Com­merce and open for busi­ness at 9 a.m. on Mon­day. New Vi­sion is lo­cated in Brad­ford Plaza be­tween Down­ing­town Pike and Stras­burg Road in East Brad­ford. There will be light re­fresh­ments and short tours of the fa­cil­ity.

New Vi­sion said it takes pride in be­ing a pa­tient-cen­tered, tech­nol­ogy-driven of­fice. It boasts hundreds of frames that are up-to-date with the lat­est trends in eye­wear. While there are the usual tried and true frame styles, New Vi­sion Fam­ily Eye Care also has in­de­pen­dent lines, each with a unique story, not found in most other places in the West Ch­ester area.

All ages are en­cour­aged to have eye ex­ams and age-ap­pro­pri­ate test­ing.

Dr. Olayemi Swindell is the prac­ti­tioner.

“At New Vi­sion, we be­lieve your re­al­ity is based on what per­spec­tive you have of your life cir­cum­stances. That’s why we strive to cre­ate an at­mos­phere where our pa­tients can en­trust the eye care of their whole fam­ily to us for years to come, de­vel­op­ing a new view of their world-one pair of eyes at a time,” Swindell said.

Hoover do­nates to food bank

In 2012, Hoover Fi­nan­cial Ad-

vi­sors PC se­lected Ch­ester County Food Bank as its char­ity of record. Each au­tumn it holds a Fall Funds for Food cam­paign to raise money for the food bank be­fore the hol­i­days.

With par­tic­i­pa­tion from em­ploy­ees, clients and busi­ness col­leagues HFA has brought in close to $50,000 since 2012. At a re­cent check pre­sen­ta­tion, Pete Hoover, founder and CEO of the Malvern area com­pany,

con­trib­uted $15,000 to the lo­cal food bank on be­half of HFA and its clients.

“At this time of year, we look for­ward to up­com­ing hol­i­days and many won­der­ful fam­ily din­ners,” Hoover said. “What we too of­ten over­look is the fact there are thou­sands of peo­ple who are un­able to gather around the ta­ble and en­joy a de­li­cious meal. Not in Ch­ester County, you may say. Sadly, the fact is one in 14 peo­ple in the wealth­i­est county in Penn­syl­va­nia lack re­li­able ac­cess to a suf­fi­cient quan­tity of af­ford­able nu­tri­tious food.

HFA hopes to make the up­com­ing months brighter for th­ese fam­i­lies.”

In ad­di­tion to fi­nan­cial dona­tions, this sum­mer HFA’s staff cre­ated food boxes for kids and picked tomatoes at Pete’s Pro­duce Farm. For each dol­lar do­nated by fi­nan­cial plan­ning firm, Ch­ester County Food Bank can pro­vide four meals or five pounds of food. Since its in­cep­tion in 2009, it has pro­vided the equiv­a­lent of 1.7 mil­lion meals. Eighty-nine per­cent of the food bank’s op­er­at­ing bud­get sup­ports the hun­gry.
