Besides Dr. Leroy Kiran has been here the longest, which is nearly 10 years!! Kiran is the fun one, who chooses the frames (among other very important jobs). She started as a receptionist and then successfully transitioned to dispensing about 5 years ago and so, she has a ton of experience and style advice to give patients when picking out their frames and lenses. Last year she completed her Optometric Assistant course and is fully certified. She is a huge team player and a great asset to the team.
Kiran is passionate about her family and loves to do office Timmies runs in the early mornings!

But if you’re looking for her specifically it’s recommended that you ask for Kelly H.Kelly is a born and raised island girl. She leapt in the optical world in 2015 – by accident really.

She is our fully certified Vision Therapist and you can hear her laugh from every corner of our office.You can usually hear her discussing family, soccer, travel, dogs, and lunch. Mainly lunch.
