It sounds a little ironic when Angela Suhail introduces herself as the newest hire at Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth and explains that she is in Business Development for the Lighthouse’s Optical Lab Services.

Optical Lab Services?  That’s right.  The Lighthouse’s newest division is a team of experienced lab technicians and opticians – both sighted and visually impaired – that will produce high quality completed prescription eye glasses.  Prescriptive safety eyewear will also be available.

Suhail brings over 22 years of sales and technical experience in the Optical, Optometric and Ophthalmic industry to the Lighthouse.  For the last 11 years, she worked for a large multi doctor Ophthalmology group to build the practice’s brand.  Prior to her Business Development role, Suhail developed her technical knowledge in the Refractive Surgery Industry.  While holding a position in sales and a clinical role, she learned the ocular anatomy and surgical components of laser vision correction.  In these early days of laser vision correction, she logged many hours as a surgical scrub tech, inside sales, and optometric technician.

Initially, her extensive experience has its start in the Optical retail field with a large national company, specializing in both an on-site lab and retail.  While mastering the Optical principles necessary for certification, Suhail soon became the Regional Training Coordinator after being awarded Sales Associate of the Year.

These beginnings in the Optical industry will be the foundation of her passion devoted to the start-up of the Optical Lab Division for the Lighthouse of the Blind in Fort Worth.  For more information or to make an appointment to tour the Lighthouse, contact Angela Suhail at 817-332-3341.
