Dear Mr. Kenneth J. Braun,
My Name is Ella Krugolets. I'm a former Optician from Northport VA Medical Center. During my time at the hospital, it was my pleasure meeting many good people and listening to their stories both happy and sad. The experience was humbling.
While working at the hospital, I was often asked for a recommendation where to purchase an additional and inexpensive pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. I used to recommend stores such as Walmart and Costco, although it would still cost upwards of $70. After I left Northport VA, I opened my own practice in Long Beach, so now I can really help Veterans acquire that additional pair of specs. I'm able to supply and dispense a complete pair of good quality single vision prescription eyeglasses for $25. Anyone who interested can call for my office hours.
