Life is Good

Life is Good AdIt began with t-shirts and a van. That may sound like a 60’s-era Woodstock story, but the Life is Good brand is anything but a bit of history. The company was started by 2 brothers, Bert and John Jacobs, who wanted to imbue society with a dose of optimism. They traveled all over the US, selling t-shirts with 3 words on them: Life is Good.

Their idea struck a chord and the brothers quickly sold out, word spreading about the positive message their shirts gave. Over the years, the company branched out from t-shirts to pants, sleepwear, accessories, and eyewear, all the while remaining true to its message of positivity.

Today, Life is Good has 9 in-house unisex sunglass frames in classic, fun colors and modern styles. Each pair includes a microfiber drawstring bag that can also be used as a cleaning cloth. The inside temple includes the brand’s signature positive message. The company also has a collection of 16 eyeglass frames, sold exclusively through The McGee Group. The frames are available in round and square shapes, as well as colorful designs on the temples.

Life is Good gives back to the community by donating 10% of all net profits go to the Life is Good Kids Foundation. The organization partners with children’s charities to help kids in need.

All non-urgent appointments will be canceled and rescheduled for a later date. For urgent care please DO NOT call or come to the clinic, but send an email to: for appropriate triaging.

For patients who need to order contact lenses, please continue to place your order request on our website at We encourage a 6-12 months’ supply of contact lenses to be ordered.

What consists of an emergency: Ocular Emergencies require an urgent visit within 24-48 hours. Please email our office should you experience:

  1. Chemicals splashed into the eye within the last hour
  2. Sudden loss or decrease in vision, or the appearance of a cloudy veil in front of the eye
  3. Foreign body in the eye, ocular injury or forceful trauma to the eye or surrounding area
