SPECIALISTS IN GREENSBORO, NC

Eye Doctor in Greensboro

Do you want to know the optometrist and opticians behind your healthy eyes, clear vision, top-notch lenses, and fashionable frames? …Good, because we can’t wait to tell you!

Our eye care and eyewear specialists are deeply dedicated to putting you in outstanding eyewear you’ll never want to be without.

OUR STAFF

 Dr. Melissa Heisler, O.D.

Dr. Melissa Heisler, O.D.

Dr. Heisler is from a small town in Canada called Heisler (yes, really!). Dr. Heisler dreamed of becoming an optometrist from a young age. She moved to Chicago, IL to attend the Illinois College of Optometry, where she graduated in 2018 Summa Cum Laude. She then moved to North Carolina to start her career and joined the Oscar Oglethorpe team in 2019. Dr. Heisler provides primary eyecare for glasses and contact lenses, and manages anterior and posterior ocular health, including diabetic eye exams.

Favorite part of the eye: The optic nerve
Favorite TV shows: Schitt’s Creek, The Masked Singer
Favorite things off the clock: Spending time with friends and family, cooking and baking, enjoying a glass of wine, hitting the gym

Rachel Rossabi, A.B.O.C.

If you’ve been to Oscar Oglethorpe, you’ve probably run into Rachel once or twice! A true Gemini driven by a deep-seated need for constant change, her glasses collection rivals Elton John’s. She strives to be equally inimitable, and delights in fitting folx for eyewear that functions beautifully and makes them happy to be wearing spectacles. Her charmingly simple philosophy is, “Glasses go on your face. They should look good!”

Favorite books: Jane Eyre, the entire Animorphs collection
Favorite TV shows: Jeopardy, Guy’s Grocery Games
Favorite glasses: Anything by Roger Eye Design!

Favorite things off the clock: Waxing poetic about her cats, desperately trying to keep her plants alive and happy, cooking practically exclusively pasta

Rachel Rossabi, A.B.O.C.
Liz Wall, A.B.O.C.

Liz Wall, A.B.O.C.

Although she entered Opticianry by pure chance, Liz has always been fascinated by human anatomy and all its quirks! She’s a wiz with the technical side of optics, but her true love is connecting with patients on a personal level and helping to make a difference in how they feel about themselves. She is currently enrolled in the NAO Licensure program and is working towards obtaining her LDO and NCLEC.

Favorite parts of the job: Troubleshooting unique optical problems, helping coworkers learn and grow into better opticians, finding ways to use the O.O. platform as a downtown business to help the local community, asking Dr. Heisler which ocular surgeries are grossest and then watching videos of them for hours
Favorite things off the clock: Studying cryptozoology and high strangeness, cultivating an indoor jungle of houseplants, playing fetch with her cats Zuul and Gozer, spending all year building animatronics for her Halloween yard haunt
If she weren’t an optician she would be: An ocularist, or a mortician

Ayannah Jones, C.P.O.

Ayannah is a Certified Paraoptometric here at O.O. While working closely with your Optometrist, Ayannah administers vital preliminary testing such as autorefraction, visual field analysis, visual acuity, and digital retinal photography. The self-proclaimed “Cornea Cutie” loves connecting with patients! Whether you’re returning for a yearly eye exam or it’s your very first appointment, Ayannah enjoys getting to know you and your eyes!

Favorite things off the clock: Hanging out with friends, binge-watching True Crime docuseries

Ayannah Jones, C.P.O.
Rebekah Williams, A.B.O.C.

Rebekah Williams, A.B.O.C.

Rebekah is our resident yankee, a small but sassy horse girl from Connecticut, who looks pretty normal but is always surprising us with her quirks. Rebekah left her job as a preschool teacher and took the optical world by storm with her upbeat personality and enthusiasm for learning. This year she earned her ABO certification and she is always looking for opportunities to advance her knowledge of all things optical. At O.O. you can find Rebekah teaching preteens how to put contacts in their eyeballs, organizing every nook and cranny of the store, and making things look pretty! Her favorite part of her job is that every day is different. She loves meeting new people and helping them find glasses that suit their unique personalities!

If I weren’t an optician I would be: A stay at home cat mom to my children, Twiggy and Leif.
Fun fact: My first pair of glasses were lined bifocals when I was 8 years old.

Gray Perry

After many years in the service industry and a few years in real estate, Gray has had her share of very weird jobs. So, let’s just say she was fully prepared to work at Oscar Oglethorpe as our Front Desk Administrator, A.K.A. Air Traffic Control, Gray ensures that every Oscar Oglethropian is on their Ps and Qs, and makes sure things run just as smooth as your XTRActive Transitions. With no optical experience, but a great “fake it ‘til you make it” attitude, she’s fit in perfectly! Most times, she will be the first person you see when you walk in the door and the last person you see when you leave. Other times, she’ll be the first person you speak to when you call. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to avoid her…Sorry!

Fun fact: Gray’s goal is to be able to spell “ophthalmologist” without having to Google it one day. There’s a lot of work to be done.

Ayannah Jones, C.P.O.
Leah Adams

Leah Adams

Leah is our amazing lab technician who makes sure all of your lenses get ordered and edged to fit perfectly into your one-of-a-kind frames! She’s the wizard behind the scenes making our little shop run smoothly, so even if you don’t see her, give her a little thanks if you love your lenses!

Greatest loves: Her sweet pup Koda, her two terrible cats
Favorite things off the clock: Ice hockey, visiting Universal studios (where she’d live if they let her)

Sadie Cavanaugh

With a passion for cultural anthropology and a decade in the service industry, Sadie’s got a lot of skills up their sleeve. Going from a professional coffee slinger to an aspiring licensed Optician, it’s been an extremely fun transition. Like whipping up something extra special for every individual, Sadie loves to find everyone’s niche style and maybe even encourage a lil step over that comfort zone!

A self proclaimed weirdo, and born on April fools day, this Aries loves a funky frame and will always bring you that wildcard. They love to be a part of that little pep in your step. Repairing and adjusting glasses are a part of the fun, too. Macgyver-ing, figuring out solutions, and putting things together! She’s the Optical Outlaw.

Favorite things to do off the clock: Kayaking on calm water, hiking with their doggies and fiance, floating in any body of water, having a nice mental health day in bed with pet snugs.
