Womens’ Bean Project

Dr. Brian Abert and Dr. Deanna Pedroza had the opportunity to visit the Women’s Bean Project in Denver, Colorado and to offer eye exams to the staff there.  Vista Eye Care is donating glasses to any women there that need them.  “We had a great time visiting these inspirational ladies,” Dr. Pedroza said.  “It was an honor to get to meet them and to use our professional abilities to make sure their eyes were healthy and they were seeing to their potential!”

From the Women’s Bean Project Website:

Founded in 1989, Women’s Bean Project is an anomaly in the business world. It is a business, one that packages and sells bean soup mixes, baking mixes and other dry food products to stores across the U.S. and online. But tucked inside this business is a human services organization designed to provide a safe and accepting work environment where impoverished women can learn the skills required for gainful employment.

Please enjoy these pictures from our fun afternoon performing eye exams!

Dr. Deanna Pedroza arrives at the Women’s Bean Project headquarters in Denver with a cart full of eye care supplies and equipment.

The Women’s Bean Project is located in an old firehouse that the organization purchased from the City of Denver. The elevator was convenient, but slow as this sign attests!

Dr. Brian Abert works with an employee to test her vision.

Dr. Deanna Pedroza checks the retinal health of a Women’s Bean Project staff member.

The Women’s Bean Project director was kind enough to present us with a gift basket. We plan on making the chili this week!

Thank you for checking out the pictures from our fun afternoon at the Women’s Bean Project!  Next week we will return to dispense the glasses we are donating to the staff, and to complete a few more eye exams.  Please look for Women’s Bean Project goods where you shop and support this wonderful organization!

If you would like to schedule your annual comprehensive eye and vision examination, please call us today at (303) 450-2020, or use the button below to schedule your appointment online:

Staff Trivia Night!

Vista Eye Care hosted its first Trivia Night with the Geeks who Drink trivia group.  We had a super-fun time testing our super-useless knowledge.  Read more about our hijinks from the perspective of our Quiz Master, John.  Enjoy these pictures from our fun night out!

Our entire office was invited for a fun night of trivia at our Lead Optician Claudia’s house!  Thank you to Claudia for hosting our employee party at your beautiful home!

Geeks who Drink is a local trivia group that meets at restaurants and bars. Because we had such a big group, they agreed to host a special night just for our office!

What an appropriate bottle opener, eh?

The competing teams of Vista Eye Care rattle their brains for the correct answer.

Dana, Kelly, Kathy, and Sam had a blast!

Amanda, Richard, Tara and Dr. Pedroza celebrate their win!  Good job team!

Claudia, Jeff, Sonya, and Ciara were in it to win it!

Every great contest needs a prize, and everyone received either a bag of chips or some Pop Rocks for their efforts!

Richard’s favorite category was recognizing pop songs played in the form of instrumental saxophone solos.  His experience as a sax player helped drive him to victory!

Thank you for stopping by to check out our fun trivia night pictures!  Vista Eye Care is so fortunate to have the greatest team ever in charge of your eye care.  Please call us to schedule your appointment today at (303) 450-2020, or use the button below to schedule your annual eye and vision examination.  There’s nothing trivial about excellent patient care, and we invite you to come see our team in action!

Chicago Meeting!

Dr. Brian Abert and Dr. Deanna Pedroza visited Chicago, Illinois for the annual American Academy of Optometry meeting this October.  They took a variety of classes, including courses on low vision, contact lenses, ocular disease, systemic disease, glaucoma, ocular nutrition, and practice management.  “This was my first time visiting Chicago,” said Dr. Pedroza.  “I had so much fun seeing the architecture of the city!”  The docs managed to take an entire day off from class, and took a boat ride down the Chicago river.  Please enjoy these pictures from their adventures:

The Windy City! The weather was fantastic in Chicago except for a bit of rain.  Dr. Abert took this picture from the 95th floor of the John Hancock Center Tower.

Chicago optometry meeting

Drs. Abert and Pedroza pose over the river in downtown Chicago.  What a view, huh?

We were super excited to visit Chicago for the meeting this year! Next year’s annual meeting will be in San Antonio and we hope to get to go to that meeting as well.

The docs had a great time wandering around the city. Chicago is considered a great city to explore on foot and it was easy to see why! Dr. Pedroza reported up to 16,000 steps on her watch!

Deep dish pizza! This was a highlight for Dr. Abert who has looked so forward to trying Chicago Pie. The verdict: worth the flight for a pizza alone.

What an amazing city! We were so fortunate to be able to visit this beautiful city.

What would a trip to Chicago be without a Chicago Dog? Dr. Pedroza enjoyed this Windy City classic and reported that it was “perfect!”

Dr. Pedroza met up with friends from school: from Left: Dr. Deanna Pedroza, Dr. Sonia Salas, Dr. Reena Patel, and Dr. Linda Pang. It was great to see the gang!

Here Dr. Pedroza poses in Millenium Park by the big reflective “Bean” that draws tourists (and optometrists apparently) worldwide. Even the rain couldn’t stop Dr. Pedroza from exploring the city!

Dr. Abert and Dr. Pedroza had an incredible time in Chicago and look forward to visiting again soon!

Thank you for looking at our trip pictures!  Please call us today at (303) 450-2020 to schedule annual eye and vision examinations for yourself and your family, or feel free to use the button below to schedule with us online:
