HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN LOCATED IN OLD SOUTH?
Old South Optometry has been proudly serving the Old South community for over 20 years!
WHY DID YOU LOCATE IN OLD SOUTH?
The founder of Old South Optometry, Dr. Bauman, has been a resident of Old South for more than 25 years and when she decided to start an independent optometry practice she chose to practice in the part of London she knew the best! As the practice grew and Dr. Schropp joined as a partner they chose to stay in Old South because of the wonderful environment for the practice!

We support local efforts to raise funds for eye research through participation in events like Comic Vision and the Run for Retina events.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OLD SOUTH?
The best part about serving the Old South community are the relationships we’ve built up with our patients and their families over the years. We’ve seen children grow up from infants to teenagers to young adults and have served generations of families! Old South is a small town within a bigger city and we value being part of this special and tight knit community.
