The leading provider of quality vision care products and personalized optometric services in Charleston.

Dr. Mark Esarey began his Optometry practice in Charleston in 1987 by joining Dr. Charles Sellett on Monroe Street, just off the courthouse square with distinction for quality eye care with personal attention for each and every patient. As Dr. Sellett retired, Dr. Esarey began his solo Optometry practice in early 1990.  Soon after, Dr. Esarey purchased the well-established Charleston Optometry practice of Dr. Dean Ambrose and Dr. Alan Huntworth.

In 2006, Dr. Darcy Duzan joined Dr. Esarey in the practice of Optometry as Lifetime Eye Care in the current location at 1700 18th Street in Charleston. June of 2017 brings Dr. Derek Hennig to our practice as an additional Optometrist.  The practice remains at the forefront of the eye care profession by utilizing Optomap Retinal Imaging as an integral part of comprehensive eye health evaluations, as well as the latest technological advances in the monitoring of patients diagnosed with glaucoma, diabetes, or macular degeneration. Lifetime Eye Care also offers the only comprehensive 2-year eyeglass frame and lens warranty in the area. Dr. Duzan, Dr. Hennig and Dr. Esarey unconditionally guarantee a contact lens fit to ensure optimal vision and comfort for those patients choosing to wear contact lenses.
