My name is Leslie and I was born in Mexico. I came here when I was 8 years old and left again when I was 16. Four years ago I came back and my first job was in optical. I automatically fell in love with it.   6 months later I took my American Board of Opticianry exam and passed it! I worked at LensCrafters for about 3 years and decided that it was time to explore more!

James started as a lab technician at the beginning of 2016 at Lenscrafters. He was fascinated by how much substance there is to the optical world as well as how much work goes into making corrective lenses that help millions of people see around the world. Since becoming a lab technician, James has worked to understand the different aspects of the optical field and loves the rewarding feeling of being able to fix, repair and produce eyewear for every patient. After joining the Bakersfield Eye Care team, James grew to appreciate the craftsmanship of Matsuda eyewear and is stunned by the vibrant colors of Etnia Barcalona eyewear. He is also acquiring a degree in Computer Science and enjoys modifying his 2007 Civic SI in his free time.
