It will include a full-service retail optical shop, including prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses and contact lenses.

“We’re excited to extend our services to Spartanburg and look forward to meeting the various needs of our patients,” said Alan Leahey, chief of ophthalmology for GHS. “The GHS Eye Institute provides the latest eye surgeries and we pride ourselves on helping patients review their options.”

GHS will host a grand opening event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the office. Local residents can take advantage of free glaucoma and dry eye screenings.
