Eyewear Gallery helps the Urban Community!

urban gradeners binghampton

This picture shows some of the volunteers for the Binghampton Urban gardeners community project.  Many businesses and groups help the community that we live in.  One of the cities blighted but upcoming areas is the Binghampton neighborhood between Poplar and Sam Cooper Blvd and Tillman and North Parkway in Memphis.  Dr. Warren Johnson and his office support this effort by helping grown vegetables for the area.  The garden patches came about by going into the neighborhood and finding small parcels of dirt. These parcels can range from side yards of existing homes, torn down homes or even raised bed parking lots.  These efforts support Caritas House which helps get kids off the street and doubles as a community center and a restaurant that uses these fresh produce grown by the Binghampton urban gardeners.  The gardening is a year round project and has many committed members.  Carl Awsumb was the founder and it has been in existence for 8 years.

You may be surprised to learn that some of the produce that you get at the farmers markets are from our community gardens.  We pay the young people in the neighborhood for helping us work the gardens and they receive food to take home, in an environment that teaches them about nutrition and helps keep them off the streets. This area has grown with many refugees who have found and live in the community and are helping with our efforts.

Come out and help this great community project of Binghampton Urban Gardeners and contact Dr. Warren Johnson at wjohnson@eyeweargallery.com

Don’t buy fake Raybans shopping online!


This video compares the difference between getting a good deal when you shop online and not getting what you thought you bought.  Many times people are duped into buying names of sunglasses that are a great deal but are unfortunately fake.  Sunglasses like Oakley, Rayban, Costa and Maui Jim to name just a few.  You may save some money on the front end but lose some money overall if you want Raybans that aren’t fake.  There are no replacement parts including lenses if your fake glasses break. 

Fake names in glasses are all over the internet so if you want to make sure you are getting what you want, go to a trusted vendor.   EyewearGallery.com  will sell to you authenticated Raybans  on our site in all colors, shapes and sizes!

Tired of Negative Media in Memphis?



I just wanted to post about our Memphis Chamber of Commerce.  I don’t know how many people in the community know about our Chamber.  Amy Daniel is a great leader of the organization.  Last night at one of their monthly meetings, I attended with my wife Kay Johnson.  I had the privilege of hearing one of our doctors at Eyewear Gallery, Dr. Do Nguyen, speak on bringing more youth into the fold of the chamber.  I didn’t realize how vital the chamber was to our community.  It helps build a strong infrastructure for our city, through its members and it’s board.  The people in the Chamber membership are great but everyone in the city should know how important their voices are thru an apolitical medium.  The city removed its funding some years back so it is completely self sustaining and has been instrumental in our keeping St. Jude Hospital, bringing Electrolux to Memphis and keeping Service Master in our hometown all providing jobs for our citizens.


We constantly hear the negatives about our city and unfortunately through our media.  While it is very important that we be informed of danger, I think it SO important that the media cover the great people, organizations and companies of the city.  The media could post something daily about our world renowned St. Jude hospital and the great work they do for children who come from all over the world.  This would provide a positive spin on Memphis.  We have been voted one of the best and most economical places to live and one of the friendliest cities, a great health care hub with many professional schools and a major logistics capital in the world.


Don’t we all agree that it’s the positive things that the city provides to help us retain our young Memphians.  They are the life blood of our future. We shouldn’t take this for granted and be proud of all the nice and great people that improve our lives and the infrastructure of the city.  I think the hashtag #ProudofMemphis should become part of our Mantra.  Let’s join together through our collective social media posts and maybe the media will pick up on that and follow suit.  We Memphians, may have to take charge of this positive spin about the city.  Please help the city by contributing and/or volunteering in some of the community projects spear headed by the Chamber.  We need as many people as possible to join and not just people who own companies.  Thank you to Memphis Chamber, it’s board and Amy Daniels.  A special thanks goes out to those who spoke last night who in their own microcosms, are fighting and rallying troops to #MakeMemphisBetter.  Hank Martin of NSAIG, Dr. Do Nguyen of Eyewear Gallery and Lameka Ivy of her own company put their own spin on what they have received from the Chamber and how we can help.  Well, they inspired me to write this.

Thank You to all of you and Thank You Memphis!

Eyewear Gallery staff help at FedEx House for Kids!


Eyewear Gallery sponsors many charitable organizations locally and otherwise.  We close our office every week for a couple of hours to come up with ideas to help each other take care of our patients.  As a result of these meetings, we pick events and charities where we can give back to the community.  This gives us more than we give. Our entire staff vote to pick a charity and we embrace the effort to give back because so many people give to us in our practice.  We appreciate the efforts that our staff make to make that happen.  We are impressed with the efforts of the FedEx house team who work to make life comfortable and more tolerable for the families and kids of St. Jude who are given a place to live while they undergo a difficult time in their lives.
