The skies are looking clear in the City of Sharon… but that’s probably because of Jim and Amy Schnieder’s new venture: Sharon City Eyeworks. The new state-of-the-art optical studio now offers eye exam services, in addition to the existing “Eyes of Faith Optical” eyewear boutique.

Amy and Jim Schneider’s company has grown from a “crazy, middle-of-the-night idea,” to an industry leader. Their faith-fused enterprise, headquartered in the Applegate building in Downtown Sharon, has earned plenty of attention for beautiful eyewear products and stellar customer service. But a passion for giving has resulted in some 120,000 pairs of glasses being delivered to people in need around the world. In recent years EOF even teamed up with radio personality Delilah to fund homes for widows and orphans in Ghana—all from Sharon, PA.

But it’s their new division, Sharon City Eyeworks, that’s getting a closeup right now with leading-edge in-person and virtual technology that’s changing the eye-care experience. Their new eye exam process delivers the comfort of “no-dilation” imaging, a “no-puff” glaucoma test, and a pain-free, comprehensive exam that challenges old ideas of eye exams.

At Sharon City Eyeworks, you can “Visit us for a friendly, unique, and fun optical experience. With more than 50 years of combined optical experience, our team will guide you through a comfortable, comprehensive eye exam, and help you find new glasses, or contacts, that make you look AND feel your best.”

Thanks to the Schneiders bringing their “purpose, passion, and style” to our hometown, Sharon now has access to a quality healthcare service with cutting edge technology and innovations. We don’t know about you, but we think the future looks bright and clear… especially with the right glasses or contact lenses to see it! Check out their new venture for yourself at
