Hello and Welcome!
My name is Ric, and I’m here to be your Optical Guru. Through nearly 30 years of experience as a dispensing optician, I’ve run across continual frustration with the reality that patients are not terribly well informed on what types of lenses fill their visual needs. So, I’m taking it on myself to try and address this.
My goal here is to write about lens technologies and advancements which could benefit you, the patient. In addition, I hope to answer your questions about some basic terminology or technologies so you can better understand what exactly it is you need in your daily life.
In conjunction with this blog, I am launching a new podcast to answer these questions and post bi-weekly updates on lens and frame technologies.
While I work in this industry, I do not work for any particular lens or frame company. I recommend based solely on what fits a patients lifestyle.
I look forward to starting a conversation with you!
