Through the professional and through instruction received, Light Benders is guaranteed to make any optical office preform from 'simply good' to exceptional and great! I look forward to continuing my optical education through this organization, as it will benefit doctors, patients, and the optical industry for years to come."

Kylee Suckla


"As a beginner optician, light benders academy has given me the knowledge and confidence to advise my patients with the glasses that will suit them best. I loved the layout and descriptiveness in the course. Having opticians from all different skill levels, either learning the material for the first time or expanding their existing knowledge, provided a unique experience that showed me no matter how long you have been in this business you can never truly stop learning."

Geraardo Guzman


I have been an optician for 3 years and I have been wanting to up my knowledge in preparation of getting my ABO certification. Even with the knowledge I’ve gained from years of working in optical, I have been learning TONS from Leana since our very first class! She is a fantastic teacher and has loads of information that is absolutely monumental for a career in optical. Even in the introduction classes where I was thinking it would be more reviewing of what I already know, she gave me perspective changing knowledge and made it not only interesting and impactful, but even fun to learn.Whether you are a person just starting out in optical or someone with years of experience under your belt, I HIGHLY recommend joining Lightbenders Academy to get your knowledge up and help people see life through the perfect lens!
