Welcome, Eyewear Professionals!
My mission statement:
A Brief Personal History
I am a native of the Midwest. I am also a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, Sikh minister and chaplain. My career as an optician began following active duty with the U.S. Marine Corps in 1958. I maintain active optician licenses in Florida and Arizona. I am certified by the American Board of Opticianry, and National Contact Lens Examiners. I am currently an ophthalmic dispenser training consultant. And I am a passionate advocate of a) resurgence of the optician as a skilled health care provider as opposed to those dispensers today who are trained merely as eyeglass merchants; b) resurgence of the unbiased full discovery and disclosure life-style interview and design of prescription eyewear; c) conscientious delivery of prescription eyewear; and d) practical hands-on-the-patient training for aspiring opticians in the art and craft of custom designed lenses and handcrafted, form-fitted prescription eyewear.
