Our Vision

As a Registered Dispensing Optician, The Vision Parlor is dedicated to providing fittings, adjustments, and eyeglass repairs for our patients. We work hard to make a difference by ensuring ALL patients have access to receiving quality personalized care by providing mobile services to disabled patients, health facilities, businesses, and clients seeking concierge style care.

Our Mission

We are passionate about helping others to see, and empowering individuals to embrace their uniqueness. By fitting patients with eyewear that builds confidence, it allows our patients to leave feeling "heard", and ultimately happy with the quality of care.

Our Commitment

We are committed to making a difference within the Optical and Optometry field. We are a vendor for the Los Rios Community College School District, serving as Subject Matter Experts with the goal of creating the first ever certificate curriculum for the Greater Sacramento California Region. This curriculum allows for students to obtain a certificate and fill employment gaps within the Optical and Optometry industry.

Our Journey

It all began with opening an online shop, then a small 220 sq ft office to service patients by appointment, and provide mobile optician services, repairing eyeglasses and filling prescriptions. After 2 years of waiting for the perfect location, we relocated to a street view storefront in Downtown Auburn, CA next to the California Welcome Center, a 5 minute walk from Placer High School, Confluence High School, LeFebvre Stadium, Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center; 15 minutes from Auburn's Chamber of Commerce, Placer County Museum, The Gold Rush Museum, Boys & Girls Club of Placer County, Gold Country Fairgrounds & Events, and Old Town Auburn.

meet the owner

Anna is passionate about helping others to see, and empowering individuals to embrace their uniqueness. As a child, she and her brother were bullied for being poor and called "four eyes" for wearing glasses. Options were limited to the least cosmetically appealing eyewear; eyewear that broke easily after a few months. Her first time repairing eyeglasses was at the age of 10, as she learned to solder her metal frames back together. Growing up, she knew she never wanted anyone to feel how she did. It's important to her that there's a safe space for her patients, especially those who have been bullied for being poor or different.

After 12 years working in Retail Optical, Private Practice, and Hospital settings, she opened her own business in 2018 providing mobile services, fill-in optician services, optical consulting services, and focusing on building an e-commerce optical shop. Due to high demand for patient services, she relocated in 2019, expanding her services to include eyeglass repair services and a small dispensary to provide specialty optician services. A street view location opened up in 2020, so she expanded once more, dedicated to providing concierge services.

The pandemic shutdown occurred 2 weeks after relocating to the new space, and The Vision Parlor was temporarily closed through December 2020. Anna was determined to survive through the pandemic, and her passion for her professional field and dedication to her patients enabled her to do so. Her entrepreneurship motto is clear: for every setback, there's an opportunity, and she did not come this far to only come this far. Her patient care motto is simple: to treat every patient with dignity, respect, and to have compassion for helping all patients to see.

When she is not working at The Vision Parlor, she is typically taking care of two disabled family members, running them to their doctor appointments every week, working with The Department of Consumer Affairs and CA State Board of Optometry on laws and regulations for California Consumers as a Committee Member of the Dispensing Opticians Committee, a Subject Matter Expert building the Optical Technology 2021-2022 curriculum for the Los Rios Community College District, baking, learning new cooking recipes, spending time with her german shepherd, exercising, and exploring the great outdoors.
