While each member of our staff has a primary area of responsibility and expertise, everyone has also been cross-trained in other aspects of patient care. This enables us to provide the most comprehensive level of attention and service possible. Additionally, each of our eye care professionals is fully trained to dispense contact lenses and to teach patients how to insert, wear, remove, and care for their lenses.
Amanda, is new with our office but is familiar with all areas of our practice. She ensures our office runs smoothly and that our patients receive the attention they deserve. She manages patient relationships, oversees our front desk, schedules appointments, maintains patient records, coordinates insurance, and handles referrals to other specialists.
Jessie is new with our office but has been helping our patients choose from our large selection of men’s, women’s and children’s eyeglass frames. She oversees the proper dispensing and fitting of frames and also handles our patient pre-testing process, including auto-refactor testing and k-readings for contact lenses. Her primary concern is ensuring our patients are satisfied with the look and comfort of their eyeglass frames as well as contact lenses.
Having our lab in-house enables us to make certain each pair of glasses meets our high standards for quality and patient satisfaction. We troubleshoot prescriptions to ensure the lenses are correct and that they match properly, assemble the eyeglasses, and work with our patients to achieve proper fit. We also handle eyeglass repairs in the office.
Blackstock Eye Care is the best at what they do and make you feel right at home.
