Sharman

Sharman has been with Eyecare Associates for 40 years. She is ABO certified as an optician, can train patients new to contact lenses, schedule appointments, triage patients, and so much more. With every passing year, she continues to grow.

Sharman is Eyecare Associates. She embodies our team spirit and our 5 star customer service mentality. She connects with the other employees at a very intimate level with her very honest, giving and caring nature. And, because she would not write these sentiments about herself, we take this opportunity to share our warm thoughts with all of those who know her and all of those who have not yet had the pleasure.

Leah-Cropped

Leah

Lead Certified Paraoptometric Assistant

My work in optometry started in 1993 and one year later I began working at Eyecare Associates as their contact lens technician. Over the years I have enjoyed working in all departments within our office and for the last 14 years have been an optometric technician. I love working with our patients and enjoy seeing all of the familiar faces from the last 20+ years. When I am not working I spend time with my family and try to get outdoors as much as possible-I love the sun! Summertime is filled with swimming, camping and barbecues. The winter months we try to get away for a skiing when we can but usually stay close to home and go sledding instead. I am an artist so I create things when I get inspired and love to take photos, especially of my family and nature.

All of our doctors and co-workers are a blast to work with, and every day I look forward to seeing them.

Dawn Dittmar, MHA

Practice Administrator

I have been with Eyecare Associates for a number of years and it is such a pleasure to work with the staff and doctors. ECA stands behind their employees and really encourages feedback, continuing education, and friendship. The patients have been around generation to generation and it is nice to see returning families every year and watch their children grow up. No company is perfect, but if you are looking for a patient and employee friendly environment, ECA stands above the rest!
