About Us

Dr. Susan Folgar


Dr. Folgar worked for many years as an independent contractor, providing eye examination services to various optical shops throughout Massachusetts.  One of Dr. Folgar's dreams was to own her own optical shop.  With the unfortunate passing of the previous owner, Dr. Stephen Bochnack, the opportunity to take ownership of Kenmore Optical emerged. Although it will be a difficult task to fill the shoes of the late Dr. Bochnack, Dr. Folgar will provide outstanding service to the community of Boston.  With the implementation of state-of-the-art equipment, offering high fashion brand frames, and with her family by her side, you will receive a warm, comforting, and outstanding experience at Kenmore Optical. 


Kenmore Optical, which was established in 1941, is located at 1018 Beacon Street in Brookline, MA, 02446

The practice is conveniently accessible from the Green C Line and has ample parking.
