Dan Crowell has been in the optical industry since 1987.  He began his career as a laboratory technician where he discovered his passion for great optics.  With his precise attention to detail and ease of teaching others, it was not long before he became lab manager.  As Dan broadened his experience in the optical world, he discovered his true calling was working with people as a dispensing optician.  He recently joined Dr. Bert at Lakefront Eye Care who shares a common mission to help people achieve their very best vision.  Dan is a guru of new lens and frame technologies and his favorite guinea pig is himself.  Patients seeking optimal visual performance with their glasses will not meet a more friendly or knowledgeable expert in the field, especially when it comes to progressive no line bifocals.  Dan takes the time to educate every patient on the latest technologies available in terms everyone can understand.  He believes every person has a unique set of needs and wants, and takes pride in empowering patients with the knowledge necessary to design lenses to fit their lifestyle.  “With all of today’s great, new tech, I firmly believe I can help YOU build the best glasses you’ve ever had!” In his spare time he loves playing hockey, golf and wrestling with his dog. Golfing glasses are one of his favorite types of glasses to design.
