For bird lovers, the Outer Banks is hard to beat. This delicate chain of barrier islands is not only home to dozens of different native shorebirds, but also thousands of migrating birds who make a rest stop on the Outer Banks every year. Add to this the fact that the islands have hundreds of miles of deserted beaches, maritime forest, and marshlands for species to quietly flourish, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is literally for the birds.
In business since 1983, Professional Opticians sells the latest designer sunglasses as well as the best trendy and classic frames for corrective glasses. But what’s great about this store is that it owned by an independent local licensed optician who can fill prescriptions from any doctor. She knows about the products she sells, and she can provide the personal service you need when choosing eyewear. Each spring, she visits the Vision Expo, a large trade show in New York City, to find the latest and greatest in eyewear. Brands at the store include Ray-Ban, Esprit, Costa Del Mar, Maui Jim, Guess, and Liz Claiborne. Whether you need sunglasses for driving, fishing, athletics or just to look cool, you can find them here.
