Meet The Staff
Get to know the staff at The Eye Clinic of Great Falls.
A Great Falls native, Judy began her optical career in 1984. Prior to joining the Eye Clinic she was in the classroom teaching science. Judy has worked all aspects of the office from scheduling, billing and insurance, and as an optician.
She found her niche in the eye care business and has loved her years at the Clinic and the patient interaction. She is a Certified Optician and is currently the office manager for the Clinic.
Judy is passionate about eye wear. A glasses junkie, she is known for her multiple pairs of eye wear. Judy’s philosophy on eye wear is that frames should flatter the face, reflect your personality, and provide the best vision with your prescription. Judy feels that anyone who wears glasses should have more than one pair because glasses are like shoes: one pair isn’t enough!
Judy is always available to help you find just the right pair of glasses that fit your budget.
