Five Questions With Dr. Andrea Stein

By Brad Bretz | Thursday, December 9, 2010

Dr. Andrea Stein is the owner of Eye See Ravenswood at 4735 N. Damen Ave.  Andrea has been in the eye care industry for over 20 years. Her eye-wear store has a fantastic collection of frames from many top designers as well as top tier contacts lenses and sunglasses. As Andrea says, your eye-wear doesn’t need to be boring!

1.What brought you to the area?

It’s a real neighborhood, you feel like you’re at home and you know the people who walk by, it feels comfortable

2.What’s your favorite business in the neighborhood?

Ravensgoods, which is an eclectic store, owned by my friend Lulu Jacobs. Another store is Orange Beautiful which does their own stationery and book binding.  And another is The Perfect Cup.

3. What are your hopes for the future of the neighborhood?

That we keep getting more little shops and boutiques in here to bring some people from out of the neighborhood to see that we are an established area of Ravenswood.

4. What’s your favorite activity that you do in the neighborhood?

Last year, the Christmas tree lighting was here. It was a cold day and they had lots of kids from Chase Park singing and dancing and lighting the tree. And then everyone went over to The Perfect Cup for hot chocolate afterwards.

5. What would you like to say to all of the people in your neighborhood?

I’d love you to visit our store and choose us as your eye care professional and neighborhood eyeglass store!
