Ophthalmologists dislike optometrists but for now let's set all that aside how about.

Ophthalmologists dislike optometrists but for now let's set all that aside how about.
This is True True True: If you travel around the U.S. a bit, you'll begin to notice that there was a wave of construction of standalone optometry-eyewear shoppes in the nation's smallish-sized cities in the years circa 1980. The ones of these that still exist are easily recognizable by the looks of their Period Architecture. They're often some kind of brown.

Standalone optometry-eyewear shoppes in smallish-sized cities were a business model that lots of people wanted to get in on at around the same time, and I feel like the story of this wave of optometry activity is largely absent from Americans' popular understanding of U.S. economic history.
