Meet our Eye Care Team
We believe we have one of the best eye care teams you can find. Our optical team has over 75 years of combined experience, which helps ensure you love your glasses. Each of our staff members at Waco Vision Source has ongoing training throughout the year. The majority are certified by the American Optometric Association, and the rest of our team is actively working toward this goal.

Between insurance company rules and government regulations, managing a practice has gotten so complicated that you often need an engineer to figure things out. Our Business Manager, Ryan, graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Civil Engineering, and he keeps things running smoothly behind the scenes for our practice. He has been with our practice since 2009.
Ronda began working in the Optical field in 2010 because she hated her first pair of glasses so much. Once she found the right eye doctor that helped her understand why she was having problems with them and how they could be better, she was hooked. We were honored she chose to join our team when she came to Waco. Ronda has moved out of state to be nearer to family, and we wish her all the best.
Lymya brought years of retail customer service and merchandising experience to our office, as she followed her passion of a career in healthcare. As our Contact Lens Technician, she enjoyed being hands-on with each patient to make sure vision is as clear and comfortable as possible.
We wish her well as she continues her studies on the road to becoming an optometrist herself!
