Lori Baron, COVT

Certified Optometric Vision Therapist

What I Enjoy Most About Working at Ocean Optics

The best part about my job is I get to have fun while working! Since joining Ocean Optics in 2013, I have enjoyed helping patients achieve their vision goals and learning new vision skills that improve their quality of life. I love hearing all of our patient success stories and it is what makes being a Vision Therapist such a rewarding career.

A Little More About Me

I received my BS in biological sciences from FAU in 2008. I am completing my certification as a Vision Therapist from the College of Optometrists in Vision Development this April and attend continuing education by the Optometric Extension Program Foundation each year.

My Interests Outside of Work

Outside my work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love the outdoors and nature, health and fitness, arts and crafts, reading and travel.

Brett Lerman, DO

Licensed Dispensing Optician

What I Enjoy Most About Working at Ocean Optics

I truly enjoy the personal service I can provide to each patient. We are a family here at Ocean Optics, and our patients are our extended family. After I fit a patient with a pair of glasses, it is extremely important that they leave with a smile on their face.

A Little More About Me

I have over 20 years of experience as a Licensed Optician. I’ve had the privilege of learning from some of the top professors in the country, and have earned the title of “Master Optician”.

My Interests Outside of Work

On weekends I enjoy spending time near the water, movies, playing tennis and getting together with friends and family.

What I Enjoy Most About Working at Ocean Optics

What I enjoy the most about working at Ocean Optics is our family environment. I feel at home when I come to work every day, and I love being able to connect with patients every day.

A Little More About Me

I am originally from Connecticut. I started working in the eyecare industry in 2012 and I enjoy all aspects of vision and eye health. You can count on me for fashion advice when choosing your next frames.

My Interests Outside of Work

I moved down to Florida in 2017 with my husband. I love animals, traveling, and shopping. I love anything that has to do with nature.

Rachel Gaon

Patient Care Coordinator

What I Enjoy Most About Working at Ocean Optics

My favorite thing about working at Ocean Optics is that we are all (staff and patients included) a family. We take the time to get to know every patient and make sure all their needs are taken care of.

A Little More About Me

I moved to Florida from Brooklyn, NY in 2017 with my husband and dog. My background is in nutrition and exercise science. It has been very interesting learning a new field and seeing the impact a healthy lifestyle can have on eye health.

My Interests Outside of Work

In my free time I love to cook, work out, garden and enjoy the perks of Florida living relaxing by the pool and hitting the beach and park with my dog Gambit.
