Dimitri has been in the eye care and optical industry since 1991. In 1982, he started in the surfacing department of a major optical corporation, where he then advanced to the finishing department.

Once he mastered all the aspects of lens design, he then moved to the dispensary and eyewear department, where he was able to gain additional knowledge. Dimitri furthered his skills by becoming an ABO Certified optician in 1995.

While he has all the experience that is needed to be an optician, he continues to educate himself to better assist each of his patients in achieving total satisfaction for all their visual lifestyle needs. In his spare time, Dimitri enjoys reading and building drones for racing.
