Doctor Evie Lawson performs an eye exam on Renton resident Amy Mitchell begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting at the popular new “Eyes on the Landing.”
“Eyes on the Landing”, the stylish new optometry at the Landing, has been delighting its customers. One local reviewer on yelp, who has lived in the area two months, calls the shop “far and away THE BEST find of all since my move here”.
As a disclaimer, some could say that I am biased. My son-in-law mother, Donna Jones is co-owner of “Eyes on the Landing.” I was one of many who encouraged Donna and her Partner Evie to open their new shop at the Landing. I knew Donna had a great eye for fashion, a way with people, and excellent business skills, and I had heard that Evie was very popular with her patients.
The chemistry of the staff, location, and their product has blended perfectly. Their week-by-week growth in customer base has exceeded their most optimistic business plan projections, and they are getting wonderful feedback and community support.
They will be celebrating their grand opening on February 19. If you have not seen the store, I would encourage you to drop in on the 19th to look around, enjoy some entertainment and refreshments, and discover the beauty in corrective lenses.

The following is a recent review on Yelp by one of their newest customers. I’m sharing it here because it is so vivid, and I feel the author’s observations are spot-on.
After the second photo, I’ve also posted the other review I found on Yelp. Again, I agree whole-halfheartedly with it.
Since moving to Seattle 2 months ago, I’ve been extremely fortunate to find some great local businesses (many through Yelp). Although this place wasn’t a Yelp discovery, it’s far and away THE BEST find of all since my move here.
First impressions: incredibly up-to-date, plentiful selection of frames; beautiful, light, roomy store layout; and the most knowledgeable, personable, genuinely helpful staff I’ve ever encountered in an optometrist’s office.
This place is heavy on attention to detail – from the display of frames to signage to the beverage offerings for patients to the spotless, modern restroom to the exam itself. The moment you approach from the outside, it’s obvious that nothing has been overlooked in the layouts or displays. Abundant natural light makes the place absolutely ideal to try on frames, and the staff honestly knows all of their products inside and out. This is the Apple Store of optometry.
Dr. Lawson is simultaneously warm, engaging, professional, fun, erudite, practical, empathetic, thorough, and sentient of patient needs. Donna and Christian were completely focused on taking care of every aspect of my first visit. Christian was not just versed on the vast frame collection, he had a natural eye for suggesting which frames would look just right on me. Had I been left unattended, I would have spent 30 minutes narrowing down to the 2 perfect frames he produced for me in less than 5. Donna spent a great deal of time ensuring my paperwork for my vision insurance was exactly as I needed it, and did so while making me feel like a long-time neighbor who’d stopped in to borrow a cup of flour. From the greeting-sans-pressure on entrance through the huge smile on my face as I left, seamless interactions with all of the staff demonstrated impeccable team service all around.
Getting an eye exam and contact lens fitting felt more like a spa appointment. Hit the mall for get-what-you-pay-for, quickly processed, mediocre optical errands. Eyes on the Landing is for those of us who seriously care about our vision, want to spend the time to examine every option available today, and be well cared for by a staff who cater to our kind.
I’ve been to more optometry boutiques, stores, mall locations, kiosks, and offices than I care to admit, but for the first time ever, I feel as if I’ve ARRIVED. If I ever leave Seattle, I will fly here just to get my exams, contacts, and glasses. Period.
