My optical journey started in 1987… Eyeglass house is my home away from home and we treat our patients like family as well. I enjoy helping patients with their frames selections as well as sharing my expertise on the latest technology of lenses today, in turn providing them with the best possible vision …I love a good “optical challenge” doing my best to trouble shoot and resolve my patients visual issues and concerns.

Married for 33 years with 2 grown children and an amazing dog, I love to ski, explore new places, good wine , work out , eat healthy and chill at the beach.

Corey is our quiet behind the scenes guy. He is expertly making your glasses in the back in our on site finishing lab. We feel outside labs lack the time to take into consideration prescription and frame selection to perfectly grind a pair of lenses and create a the most aesthetically pleasing end result. Corey has 5 years experience in a lab and we are so happy with his work and to have him on our team.
