OPTOMETRIST AND TEAM
YOUR MARYLAND OPTOMETRIST AND TEAM
Dr. Mayer J. Teles, O.D. Optometrist
Dr. Mayer Teles brought his vast knowledge and years of experience in primary family vision care to Looking Glass Optical in 1995. Dr. Teles uses the latest technology and advanced techniques to give you and your family complete eye care. He has successfully fit virtually every kind of contact lens available. At present, his practice utilizes high-technology equipment for the assessment and treatment of both vision and eye health issues. Patient education and taking the time to communicate with his patients are as important to him as the exam itself. You’ll leave his exam chair with a vast knowledge of your eyes and most likely his latest tennis game and trip to a National Park. Dr. Teles is licensed with the highest level of certification in the state of Maryland.
Marc Teles, ABO, Optician
Marc has over 20 years of experience as a dispensing optician and practice management specialist. Proper frame selection for fashion, comfort, and lens type for individual needs are as important as the eyeglass prescription itself. Personalized service and follow-up, which add up to patient happiness, are one of the reasons Looking Glass Optical enjoys such a high rate of patient referrals and 5-star reviews. If you can’t find Marc in the office, he will most likely be in the gym or a yoga class.
Cheryl, FNAO, Optician
Cheryl has been an Optician with us since 2003. She enjoys the artistry and technology of Opticianry. So when you come into Looking Glass Optical, chances are that Cheryl made your glasses. She began her career in Opticianry in 1974 as an Ophthalmic Lab Manager and branched out as a Fellow of the National Academy of Opticianry in 1980. Cheryl holds a master’s degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Management. She is currently working on her second Degree in Social Work to freelance as a virtual counselor for families and children of middle school age.
