Teresa McLaughlin, Optician

ABO Certified

Teresa at a Glance: Two words that come to mind when we think of Teresa … Sincerity and Learning. As a result of her longing to learn, Teresa has completed the Optical Tri-fecta! She worked with Glance for 9 years, then went to get some experience in a lens production facility, then a medical based optometry office, and finally, landed back home at Glance! Now a well rounded skilled Optician, Teresa continues to love what she does and where she does it! Come to Glance and let Teresa guide you to your next ‘favorite’ pair of glasses!

On Her First Glasses: “You don’t know what you can’t see until you can see!” This was my unforgettable experience when I got my first pair of glasses in elementary school. I clearly remember the drive home looking out the window at all of the leaves on the trees! Seeing individual leaves rather than just a green blob was a life changing “WOW” moment!

On Finding the Perfect Eyewear: Sometimes this is instinctual - I can look at someone and know what frame to put on them. Sometimes it’s trial and error and we’ll know it when we see it. Either way, this process for me, as an optician is to make it as easy and fun for you as possible!

On Learning: Learning is more than sitting in a classroom and taking notes while someone talks at you from the front of the room or passing a test with an A or B. Learning has no boundaries or confinements. On any given day we are learning and growing and changing. That’s what makes life a journey, not a competition.

On Life Lessons: Find something to believe in, to learn in. Live it, live it, love it and you will always have a purpose.

On Laughter: Laughter is contagious! Admit it … you can’t help but laugh when you hear a whole hearted laugh from a baby, the sweetest sound ever!
