Licensed Optician

Jose has been with PEO for 14 years. He got his start in a lens manufacturing lab, surfacing and edging lenses. He also worked on the doctor’s side for many years before coming to Private Eyes, giving him an overall knowledge of the patient’s experience from start to finish.

Jose’s role is to help patients find the best frames and also find the best lenses for their specific needs. Once he does this, he communicates with the labs to expedite the lens manufacturing process to get the glasses to our patients. Jose also works with frame representatives to bring in the latest frame styles and the most appealing frames for our patients.

What Jose loves best about his job is having knowledge of lenses and frames to help patients see the world better and more clearly. He also enjoys working with “a great crew of associates that make each day productive and yet enjoyable”.

Outside of the office, when he’s not enjoying time with his wife, Jose likes to write and play music with his band, Palm Trails.

Patient Care Coordinator and Optician 

Sara has been with Private Eyes for 9 years. She attended American Career College for Optical Dispensing and has been in the Optical field since 2006.

At PE Optometry, Sara works the front desk, answering phone calls and assisting patients on a myriad of topics including scheduling appointments, insurance benefits, billing insurance, preliminary testing, placing orders for glasses and contacts, and frame selections.

Sara enjoys working one-on-one with patients to make sure they receive the care they need. She loves helping patients with frame selections and feels so much gratification when patients get their new glasses and are able to see what they have been missing. Sara says it’s a pleasure to see patients back year after year for their annual eye exams.

Outside the office, Sara enjoys spending quality time with her family, especially beach days in the sun.
