Optician, American Board of Opticianry Certification
Laura Wesolowski, board-certified optician, possesses over 20 years of experience in eye care practices. Laura is the managing optician for our optical. She specializes in personalizing the eyewear fitting process to address each patient’s needs, both visually and cosmetically. She is a master at handling difficult adjustments and frame fittings. Laura looks to exceed your expectations with your eyewear and create a “wow” factor.

Laura has created her own patient following who seek out her expertise and she is highly respected in the eye care industry.
Emily Costigan, ABOC
Coming from career in education, Emily joined our office in March of 2013 as an Optician. Her favorite thing about working at our office is helping patients with their first pair of glasses; from choosing a frame, to edging the lenses in-office, Emily facilitates the journey of your glasses from beginning to end. "With children, it is really amazing to witness the look on their faces when they see the world clearly for the first time with their new glasses. It's pretty inspiring." She has lived and traveled all over the world, and at one time she was a ranger's assistant at a koala sanctuary in Australia. In her free time, Emily loves reading anything by Tom Robbins or Elizabeth Gilbert, yoga, kayaking, and hiking with her loveable Rottweiler, Tito.
Patient Care Coordinator
Lisa has been a patient at Wichryk Eye for many years before joining the staff in 2015 and was always impressed by the care she received. As one of our receptionists, her smiling face will greet you when you walk in our door or call on the phone. She loves talking with patients and seems to know most of them as she has worked in Alburtis School District as an instructional assistant. In her free time, Lisa enjoys spending time with her two children going to the beach or watching movies. She also enjoys cooking, reading, and would love to travel the world some day.
If you have a question about your insurance, Leah is your go-to girl. As our Office Manager, Leah's goal is to stay organized and up to date with the constantly changing needs of our practice and the healthcare industry. "I want to help our patients to make informed, positive decisions when it comes to their insurance and their visits with us." She loves all of the unique styles and colors of eyewear that our office has to offer, but she's really drawn to a great cat-eye shape. In her free time, Leah has recently started to enjoy refinishing and restoring old furniture. She also loves to spend time with her children, husband, and Golden Doodle Shaggy.

Using her eye for balance and beauty (Kim was also a cosmetology instructor for 8 years) she'll guide you toward the best glasses for your features and lifestyle. She loves fitting our patients with the latest styles and seeing the end results during eyeglass dispensing. Kim has been married to her wonderful husband Jim for 22 years and they have 3 awesome kids together. When not at the office, you can see Kim riding on the back of Jim's Harley or spending time with her family and 2 dogs, Bella and Oliver.
Jess joined the staff at Wichryk Eye in October of 2015. With a career in healthcare that has spanned 15 years, Jess is a natural when it comes to patient care. She has worked with the elderly, dementia/Alzheimer patients and urgent care and is grateful for the learning opportunities each position has offered her.

In April 2016, Jess finalized the adoption of her two young boys that she has been a foster parent for. She admits they keep her on her toes, and she likes to spend her free time playing with them at the park or trampoline park, and snuggling on the couch to watch Power Rangers (not her favorite thing to watch, by far.)
