Dr. Charlie Byrnes
After nearly 46 years of practicing optometry in Greensboro, I have retired. Whether we met recently, or we have known each other for years, it has been an absolute honor and pleasure to be your eye doctor. Many of you have become dear friends. I know you will be in good hands at Oman Eye Care.
I will miss the trust you put in me for your eye care, and I will miss all of you. It has been genuinely a pleasant experience coming into work every day and seeing many of you. I wish you all the best in the future.
