Press Release

For Immediate Release

BOCA RATON, FL Mango Optic, a family-owned optical boutique offering teleoptometry eye exams with board-certified optometrists, virtual try-ons, and a unique customer experience, will open at Lakeside Centre in Boca Raton, on Monday, January 02, 2023.

Mango Optic will showcase luxury and premium eyewear, prescription eye glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses, and accessories in its vibrant show room from iconic brands American Optical, Balenciaga, Celine, DB4K, Etnia Barcelona, Face A Face, Fred, Givenchy, Gucci, Puma, Saint Laurent, and Scott Harris.

Mango Optic will offer comprehensive ocular telehealth eye exams with live consultations from board certified optometrists, using 20/20 Now. Artificial Intelligence (AI) will allow for the early detection of retinal disease such as diabetic retinopathy. Using FDA approved medical equipment and software, retinal images are immediately enhanced using the AI program, allowing optometrists to diagnose with more confidence conditions that affect the retina. With traditional testing, some retinopathy may go undetected in its early stages.

Mango Optic is owned by Gisele and Jaime Crespo, who reside in West Boca Raton. Gisele is a licensed optician by the Florida Board of Opticianry, and Contact Lens Fitting Board Certified with more than 7 years of optical management experience. Jaime, an award-winning marketer, will oversee communications, business operations, and serve as an apprentice optician. Jaime's daughter Casandra will serve as an ophthalmic technician and fashion consultant.

“The future in eye exams is arriving to Boca Raton,” said Gisele. “Using cutting-edge teleoptometry technology, we will provide easier and quicker access to eye exams from an optometrist, that are more comprehensive than those found in most large franchise chains. Customers will receive high-quality vision care and prescriptions from the optometrist faster, and walk-in exams will be available six days a week in Boca Raton.

Through its online gallery, powered by Optify Online, customers will engage with Mango Optic’s optical inventory, including virtual try-ons, and pre-exam frame selection, from the comfort of their home on any device. Virtual try-ons with select brands, powered by Fittingbox will create an immersive try-before-you-buy experience in real time.

The name Mango Optic is derived from Gisele’s passion and love for mangos and opticianry. Born and raised in Brazil, some of her earliest memories involved climbing her grandmother’s mango trees and helping her make mango delights. During the pandemic, Gisele created to much fanfare, organic, homemade mango preserves, including flavors: mango, mango pineapple, mango chili-pepper, and mango passion fruit. Mango Optic will offer complimentary preserves to patients as a token of its appreciation. Mangos are full of nutrients that help support healthy eyes, including antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as a natural sunblock, support retinal health, and protect against blue light.

“Mango Optic will consistently strive to offer a customer experience that is completely unique,” Jaime says. “We want all people who enter our store to have fun and truly enjoy the optical shopping experience. With all the daily stresses people face, bringing joy to all who enter our store will be our mantra. Our staff will also speak Portuguese and Spanish to provide top-notch patient service to our diverse community.”

Patrons will enjoy Mango Optic’s complimentary Brazilian coffee, while they browse eyewear in its vibrant showroom. The boutique will boast a 7.5 ft. multicolored preserved moss wall display with neon lights, which was designed for selfies and social media posts. Mango color furniture, a natural cut wood optician desk, mango wood coffee table, and LED illuminated seasonal front displays will greet customers.

Mango Optic is a member of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. It’s located next to Marshall’s, and in between Mindy’s Munchies, and Embarcadero 41, a new Peruvian/Japanese fusion restaurant, which recently opened at Lakeside Centre with outdoor dining. “The ambience while shopping at Mango Optic will be one-of-a-kind,” Gisele says. “Our customers will be able to enjoy new Celines with their delectable ceviches at Embarcadero 41, and new Guccis to go along with goodies from Mindy’s Muchies!”
