One Burlington optometrist has always had his eye on the prize when it comes to small-business success.
Insight Optical, located on Burlington Mall Road, recently celebrated 25 years of business with the Burlington community on Sept. 19. At the forefront of the business since it opened its doors in 1991 is owner Dr. Derek Feifke. The Burlington location has been Insight's home for the past 11 years, and the celebration event was open to all patients and staff, who Feifke said have been the key to Insight's success.
"We wanted to thank our clients and patients for the past 25 years," said Feifke.
He added that he has always had an interest in optometry, which after he was fit for his first pair of contact lenses when he was a teenager. He said was a positive change that helped him step away from his glasses, which he been "dependent on for many years."
"As a young kid growing up in South Africa, I had a very high eye prescription," said Feifke. "I've always loved the fact that optometry gives the gift of sight"
