About Our Practice

Mary Keenan and Michele Zuccala established South End Eye in the summer of 2009. Michele and Mary have more than forty years of combined experience in the eyewear industry.


We will strengthen the community in which we live and work and build enduring relationships.

You will receive exemplary service from professionals who provide advocacy, stability, and knowledge for your eye care needs.

Michele and Mary chose the South End location due to the “neighborhood” atmosphere that exists in this section of this city. We understand the need for eye care and eyewear service in the neighborhood. Our vision was to have an option for the residents to support a South End business as well as have their visual needs met. Personal service is our signature!
