Uptown optometrists office changes name

The optometrists office at 166 Roy Street, formerly known as Eye Doctors Ltd., changed its name to Eyeballs last week.

The new name and signage is just a small face lift for the practice, which is staying under the same ownership, according to an employee.

Longtime Queen Anne resident and optometrist Dr. James McCrum and his wife Paula Whelan remodeled the building themselves in 2005, creating a 1,700 square-foot urban home above the office.
