Ellen

Ellen…co-founder of Optix, she is responsible for bringing the passion of the most esteemed frame collections from artisans around the world together with a state-of-the-art eye clinic under one roof, a novel idea in 1997. Presented in a sophisticated yet casual atmosphere with a gallery like feel and floating glass shelves, it was a collaboration with Seattle architect William Scott of Children’s Museum fame, where patients and visitors can browse to their hearts content. Always alert to individual needs, Ellen makes sure each person is treated special and unique, all the time needed is given to find that perfect look, and the team adheres to our motto, “Helping you see your best and look even better!”
