The Leighton beginning vision care started long before the opening of the first office in the 1950's.  It began in a basement apartment with Dr. Charles Leighton's father designing ideas that would become the basis for ANSI standards for lenses. Born of idea, Dr. Charles opened his first office on 36th Street and later, The Plaza Eye Clinic.  The Plaza Eye Clinic served the residents of this community for almost 50 years.
