Licensed Optician Manager Buyer
I have enjoyed working at Columbus Eyeworks since 2003 creating an exceptional eye care experience for our patients. The only thing better than collecting an inventory of unique frames is helping old friends and new clients discover the perfect pair of eyewear for them!
The best part of working at Columbus Eyeworks since 2008 is selecting the right frame for my patients. Getting to know their likes and dislikes, what colors and shapes will work with their personality is rewarding. The way a person's face lights up when we have found the perfect frame excites me.

Columbus Eyeworks History
Columbus Eyeworks was established in the year 2000 at 4th Avenue and High Street in the Short North Arts District. The award-winning Columbus Eyeworks neon sign was a replica shape of the Caravan Bar sign that had adorned the building since 1953.
Since our inception we have integrated with the arts communty of Central Ohio. The original Columbus Eyeworks location is pictured below along with some of our creative advertising placements supporting the major arts organizations of Columbus. We have always collaborated with galleries and local artists by displaying their works for the delight of and purchase by our patrons.
We made the transition along with our signature sign to our new home at 25 W Hubbard Avenue in early 2009. The new office is larger to accommodate our tremendous growth and to serve clients more effectively. Our newly renovated space occupies one quarter of what used to be the service garage for the Winders Motor Company. Winders Chevrolet was supposedly the oldest Chevrolet dealer in the State of Ohio and was cited in two Columbus Dispatch articles from 1939 and 1942 as the oldest continuously operating agency at that time in the USA.
