Your eyes are too precious for anything less. That’s why so many South Carolinians over the past 94 years have turned to the Folline family of opticians for eyewear crafted to the highest professional standards. The Folline tradition began with James Evans Folline, who was an optician in Florence, South Carolina, in 1929. His son, Jack, opened his own optical shop in 1961 in Columbia and expanded throughout the Midlands. With more than 40 years of experience serving the Midlands, the Folline family tradition continues into a third generation under the leadership of licensed optician and graduate of the University of South Carolina Master of International Business Program Emily F. Mikell and graduate of USC Law School Elaine F. Epting.

Folline is not only our name — it is our quality and our family. “Where you will find the best names in town!” Gucci, Prada, Oliver Peoples, Tom Ford, Kate Spade, Versace, and more!
