Preferred EyeCare Center
1118 Park West Blvd., Suite 5
Dr. Rachael Click knew opening her own practice was going to be a challenge, but she didn’t want to do it any other way.
“I started from scratch because I had a lot of good ideas for patient care. I also knew that if I didn’t do it, someone else would,” she said. In 2007, Dr. Click moved from Indiana to Mount Peasant and opened Preferred EyeCare Center in Park West the following year. She knew that the area was going to grow and looked forward to being a part of her patients’ health care team for years.
Park West has grown dramatically since that time, and Dr. Click recently expanded her business to accommodate the growth and take advantage of the latest technology in eye care.
“There are great advances in eye care, and we’ve recently added technology that is unique to the Lowcountry and enables us to take a picture of the back of the eye to detect a problem more efficiently. Photos can be taken without having your eye dilated and can replace dilation in healthy eyes.”
Preferred EyeCare Center offers a treatment plan that includes a vision assessment and 13-point health evaluation.
After eight years in business, Dr. Click has doubled the size of her practice and is not slowing down.
“As a small business owner, you have to be driven to do the work. You have to juggle the roles of HR and CFO and marketing,” she said. “These things are essential to being a successful business owner, but it’s the impact on people’s lives that continues to inspire me.”
