Our Certified Optometric Assistant and Operations Manager, Glenda Schatz, comes to our office with experience working in a large dispensary for 2 years before moving to Calgary in 2012. She is skilled and experienced in all aspects of frame selection, lens selection, fitting, and adjustment of eyewear. She understands the importance of educating you on the features and benefits found in different quality frames and lenses so you can make the right decision about your purchase of eyewear and sunwear. Along with experience in front line customer service, she stays up to date on the latest innovations to ensure you get the right advice on lens type, lens coatings and lens selection for your specific visual needs. Quality does matter, and her expertise in frame and lens selection will allow you to make an educated choice. Glenda takes pride in her skills as an optical dispensing consultant and Optometric Assistant, and you can trust her good judgment when it comes to both frames and the right lenses to go in them.
