DENISE GOMEZ – ABO Certified Optician
Denise Gomez, ABOC, was born in Dallas and raised in Austin. She received her B.S. in Speech Communication at the University of Texas at Austin and her Elementary Education Certification at the University of Arizona, Tucson. Her optical experiences range from working in labs manufacturing lenses to being a Certified Paraoptometric in private practice offices working hands-on with patients. This has allowed her to receive a wide range of experience as well as opportunities for professional education. Recently, she received her American Board of Opticianry Certification, which puts her in the highest levels of providers of optical care. After dabbling as an optician for several years while at the same time teaching, Denise decided to leave the education field and dedicate her skills and expertise full time to the optical industry in 2007. Denise’s wealth of optical knowledge and love for the profession shines through as she cares for patients’ eyewear needs.
A true Texas girl, Denise enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and learning about and experiencing all things Texan!
ALEXANDRA CHANDLER – Optometric Technician
Alex was born and raised in Texas and wouldn’t want to call any other place home! She has currently been in the optical field for almost 4 years and couldn’t see herself doing anything else. She started working as optician when she was 17, and after 3 years she got the chance to widen her optical experience and began to learn the medical side of the industry – working alongside the doctors and really connecting with each and every one of her patients. She is very seasoned in the knowledge of contact lenses, pre-testing, and she has very good bedside manner. Alex thoroughly enjoys seeing the outcome of a happy patient after they have had their eye exam. She wishes she could continue the care of all her patients’ eyes for years to come. In her free time, Alex enjoys going to the gym, hanging out with her family and friends, and experiencing all of the beautiful things that life has to offer!
YULIA BARRIOS – Billing Coordinator/Insurance Specialist
Yulia was born in Guatemala, C.A. and raised in Dallas, Texas. She is a high-spirited, positive and driven staff member who knows that the limits to success are self-imposed. Yulia was introduced to the optical field four years ago as an optician and soon after transitioned to patient care as an optometric technician. She has worked in office management and is currently the insurance specialist for Vision Veritas. She loves the compassion and integrity that Vision Veritas stands for and is proud to be an integral member of the team. In return for her hard work, she is rewarded by the satisfaction of each patient encounter. The spirit that brings Yulia to work every day with a smile is unlike any other. In her down time, she enjoys walking her dog at the park, travelling and painting.
