Our Success Story

Chad and Kristen met and married during their time at Pacific University College of Optometry, over 20 years ago. After completing their education, they moved to Colorado to establish a home. Here, Chad practiced within the Doctors of Optometry next to Lenscrafters at the Park Meadows Mall, while Kristen began her career at a practice in Parker, Colorado. In 2002, she joined Chad at the LensCrafters at the Park Meadows Mall.

In the fall of 2006, Chad and Kristen opened their first practice, Southlands Vision Associates, inside the LensCrafters at the Southlands Outdoor Mall, where they still practice today.

In 2019, they expanded their practice to take on a second location, Altitude Eye Care, inside the LensCrafters at the Park Meadows Mall.
