We're clearly committed to your vision health
Cassey is a second-year Contact Lens student at NAIT. With three and a half years experience in the optical field, she has been with Spruce Grove Vision Care for two and a half years. She started the optical program at NAIT in 2011 and became a licensed optician in 2013. She has chosen to continue her studies with the Advanced Contact Lens Fitting Course because she loves learning about the health of her patients’ eyes, and helping them with their vision.
The best part of the job for Cassey is seeing her patients’ reactions when they get glasses for the first time and can finally see clearly.
