Interview with Addie

How long have you worked here?

I am been with Bristol Family Eyecare Since September 2014.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to hang out with my fiance and son.

What is your favorite thing about being an optician?

My favorite thing about being an optician is helping clients pick out a frame that makes them feel good. I am a people person and I love to shop so when I am helping out a client it’s the best of both worlds, I am shopping with them and always making friends. Once we’ve chose the perfect frame I love to help them choose the perfect lenses for their needs. It’s always a good feeling when a client comes back to pick up their glasses and the finished product is everything they were looking for.

What is your favorite frame line?

I actually have 2 answers to this questions. I have 2 favorite frame lines for ophthalmic, Zero G which are SUPER light weight and have fun shapes, I am currently obsessed with the cat eye shape and Zero G has some amazing cat eyes, I also love our new Bristol Collection frame line. The colors are fantastic and the frames are easy to wear. They are great for an everyday pair. For Sunglasses I love Maui Jim! Their polarized lenses are amazing and their customer service is outstanding!

What is your favorite pair of glasses you own? This is a hard question to answer, I don’t think I have a favorite pair. I currently own 8 pair of glasses and that number will probably keep growing. You can never have to many glasses! I choose my glasses each day depending on what I am wearing and my mood.

Do you have exciting plans for the optical?

ABSOLUTELY! I am always keeping an eye out for new frame lines. Our office is growing so much and style is always changing so I am always looking for the next great thing for our office. You’ll have to stay tuned for future changes!
