Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Joanne Hendrick
    Optometric Physician
    “In high school, I spent two summers volunteering and assisting physicians, dentists and optometrists in Colombia and Guatemala. While all these services were greatly needed, it amazed me to realize what an incredible impact the ability to see clearly had on people’s lives! I knew then I wanted to be an eye doctor! It’s hard for me to imagine another job in which you get to improve people’s lives… EVERY day! All of our patients are unique. Different kinds of jobs and careers, different hobbies, different passions. wonderful stories about their ever-changing journeys. So, we are passionate about adopting new technologies to meet the shifting lives of our patients, continue to improve our diagnostic abilities and our ability to dispense the best in frames, lenses and contact lenses to our community.”
  • Dr.
    Shane Frerichs
    Optometric Physician
    “Living in Colorado affords us the opportunity to witness some of the most beautiful wonders that this world has to offer from our environment. Coupled with our ever-changing requirements with work and school, our near visual demands mandate that we can see up close clearly and comfortably. Practicing as an optometrist allows me to enhance our most important sense, our eyesight, so that our patients can fully take in every detail that is available to them both far and near.” “Ensuring the clarity of vision has become the most important aspect of my job; however, I am honored that I can help with the longevity of our community’s ocular and systemic health as well. Being able to detect possible sight and life-threating conditions simply by looking into someone’s eyes has been one of the greatest contributions that I can make to our community and I look forward to doing it on a daily basis.”
  • Dr.
    Cynthia Cid
    Optometric Physician
    “It may be true that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Yet, as a doctor, I know that the eyes are the windows to so much more. It is unbelievable what you can discover about the human body by looking into the eyes! We can detect a multitude of systemic health issues that affect the eyes and a patient’s overall health. I sometimes think of our jobs as actually being Vision Detectives, which is pretty cool!”
  • Dr.
    David Guhl
    Optometric Physician
    “Because vision affects every aspect of our lives, we’re committed to our patients, their families and friends to make sure that their eye sight is optimal. If it isn’t, school work can suffer, work can suffer, our general outlook on life can look bleak. So we take our responsibilities here seriously.
