Meet The Team
Dr. Jeff Woerner, OD
I grew up in Hudson, Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Optometry, I began practicing in the Seattle area. Then I discovered South Lake Union, and fell for it, personally and professionally. I live here with my family now, and we love being part of this vibrant place.
I opened Oculus Eyecare in 2013. It’s fun running my own optometry practice and optical boutique in such a dynamic arena – serving local residents and workers, supporting area nonprofits, and giving back to my community.
Over many years, I’ve worked with thousands of patients. I’ve successfully treated their eye disease, fit them with glasses and contacts, and have come to know them well. In doing so, I’ve learned that this is the work I was meant to do – and I really like doing it here.
Dr. Jay Huber, OD
I was born and raised in Downeast Maine. During my undergraduate studies at Bowdoin College, intersection of photography, chemistry, and physics led me to an interest in vision science and the wondrous human eye. I completed professional training at New York City’s SUNY College of Optometry, earning my doctorate in 2017. Keen to escape harsh winters and to experience the natural beauty of the PNW, I moved to Seattle soon after graduation. I have lived and practiced here ever since.
I enjoy solving the little puzzles presented by a person’s unique visual needs, and I will never tire of learning how my patients use their eyes for work and play. I strive to make sure that everyone leaves their eye exam not only with their primary concerns addressed, but also with better understanding of their visual system and ownership of their eye health. Though often small, each eye exam is an opportunity for me to make a positive impact in someone’s life, and I consider this to be the highest honor of the job.
Austin collected eyewear long before becoming an optician. Working at the intersection of design, technology, and healthcare means that he is always learning something new and he loves that.
The biggest reward of being an optician comes from designing glasses that improve a client’s confidence and quality of life. When not at work, you can find Austin at concerts, playing video games, and exploring all of the beautiful nature found in the Pacific Northwest.
Bola graduated from the Seattle Central School of Opticianry in 2009 and received her state license shortly afterwards. Finding a frame and lens combination that is both functional and flattering brings her satisfaction.
When not at work, she enjoys baking, admiring the great outdoors and dreaming of her next warm weather escape. Although she has spent most of her life in the Pacific Northwest, she enjoys exploring the otherworldly Southwest where she was born.
Brett moved to Seattle from sunny Southern California in January 2018. Shortly after they moved, they began a career in opticianry and instantly became enamored with the optical industry. Brett’s love of art drew them to opticianry since many independent eyewear lines look past the utilitarian aspect of glasses by focusing on fine details and artistry. They love sharing this passion with patients.
Outside of work, Brett loves exploring Seattle’s amazing food scene and playing board games with friends.
Kelly has been working in the optical industry since 2003. She graduated from the Seattle Central College of Opticianry program in 2005 with her state license and national certifications.
She has been working with the wonderful Doctors and staff here at Oculus Eyecare since 2017. Helping her customers find just the right frame and lens combination to make them shine and improve their vision is her passion.
Kyle began his journey with opticianry in 2013. A life-long wearer of prescription glasses, he became inspired by the unique marriage of science and artistry that suffuses the business of vision care. There is nothing he loves more than helping others see themselves in a new light through a great pair of specs. He recently spent three years living in Alaska where he participated in traveling clinics to far-flung rural communities, but returned to Seattle when homesickness set in. When not at work, Kyle fills his days with cooking, gaming, traveling, and cuddles with his dogs Haku and Hōji.
Sarah has focused on the scientific and technical aspects of glasses and helping people find the best combination for their lifestyles. She is excellent at finding solutions to people’s visual needs.
