Meet the Family Behind Your Eyes Only Optical
Whenever you walk into our Surrey optical store, you’ll find at least three of our in-house specialists ready to help you. Ranging from licensed dispensing opticians, frame stylists, lab technicians and contact lens fitters, our friendly, knowledgeable and certified optical staff are here to:
- fit you with contacts
- conduct sight testing
- provide eyeglass adjustments and repairs
- make your eyeglass prescription in our in-store lab
- find the frames and sunglasses which suit you and your budget
What makes our store different is the people who work here. No one feels like a number; we’re one big family. Each of us is different but we all have the common goal of finding you the eyewear which makes you look and feel the best you can be.
Brian started in the optical business learning how to make lenses. He quickly mastered the skill of grinding lenses and cutting them into frames moving from lab technician to dispensing optician.
Thanks to a mentor at the time, Brian stayed in the front of the store learning the retail side of an optical store. He was a natural with customers helping them find the perfect eyewear for their personality, lifestyle and fit. Brian opened his own store in Surrey, BC in 1979 and you’ll still find him fitting customers with eyewear and doing sight tests. It’s what he loves to do.
Brian is in the process of retiring these days which means he only comes in every now and then. He has worked so hard for so many years he has set the bar high for customer service and our team is ready to jump in!
You’ll rarely see Silvana in the store, but she’s the other reason why Your Eyes Only Optical has been operating since 1979. Silvana is in charge of keeping the bookkeeping as neat and orderly as you’ll find the frames in the showroom. Brian and Silvana make a perfect team!
As Brian proceeds to step down Silvana is taking reigns and driving the shop further to accommodate the new generations.
