In November 2018, sisters Giulia Tinari, O.D., and optician Paola Tinari achieved their dream of opening a boutique practice—the aptly named Sorella Optique & Eyecare in Paoli, PA. [Sorella is “sister” in Italian.]
“We want to go beyond the typical eyecare experience and have you feeling like you were at the spa,” says Dr. Tinari.
They achieve luxe vibes via welcoming aromas, soothing playlists, body care products, a jewelry line to complement eyewear, and, of course, cutting-edge eyecare services.
