Cambridge Family Eye Care sold to Alan S. Bishop, OD

After nearly 40 years of ownership, optometrist Paul D. Brant,
OD sold his eye care practice to colleague Alan S. Bishop, OD of Easton Eye Care.
The optometry practice that is today Cambridge Family Eye Care was established in 1936 by
Emerson Slocum and is one of the oldest continuously operating businesses in Cambridge. Dr.
Brant has owned the practice since 1981 and is delighted to pass ownership and management to
the next generation after careful consideration to choosing the right person.
Dr. Brant stated, “It is important to me that my successor share my ideals and values by putting
patients first and by demonstrating commitment to our community. I’ve known Alan for years
and I respect his commitment to our profession, to our communities, and to his patients and staff.
I am thrilled that Alan has purchased the practice!”
In a letter being mailed to patients, Dr. Brant writes, “I cannot suitably express in words how
grateful I am for the support that the community has shown me, my family, and our practice over
the years. I’m especially inspired by the many long-standing relationships that kindle my
passion for optometry and provide me with immense personal and professional satisfaction.” Dr.
Brant looks forward to continuing to care for patients at 401 Race Street for a number of years.
Dr. Bishop remarked, “For decades I’ve admired Dr Brant’s contributions to our profession
and I’m honored to take the helm at Cambridge Family Eyecare. Dr. Carpenter and I look
forward to working under the same roof with Drs. Brant and Willey in the years to come.”
The Market Square, Academy Street office of Alan S, Bishop, OD will move to 401 Race Street
later in July where Drs. Alan Bishop, Paul Brant, Alex Carpenter and Carey Willey look forward
to meeting new and current patients.
