Optician: Dan Butler

How long with EOF: Dan’s first day at EOF was June 1, 2004… that makes 10.5 years!

EOF specialty: Dan has been a dispensing optician for over 20 years and is a master at his craft! The process and patience involved in opticianry work is something of a “lost art”, but he never falters in taking care of every detail of your eyewear fitting experience. From frame selection, to evaluating the best options for your Rx, to fitting glasses, to effective trouble-shooting of eyewear concerns, Dan puts 1000% towards a positive experience and somehow, remains pretty “Zen” through it all!

Dan’s current inspirations & pre-occupations:
Dan’s a multi-faceted character.  For starters, he’s enthusiastic about music, biking, swimming, and tending to his French Bulldogs, Olly & Savannah!

He’s currently channeling a revival of tunes 40 years back with Canadian singer Joni Mitchell’s experimental folk album, The Hissing of Summer Lawns- “Masterpiece,” as Dan calls it. Its concurrent with a Canadian theme: he’s in the process of planning a trip to Quebec later this year with his wife, Diane. 

As for the poultry flavored toothpaste? Well, Dan is a devout caretaker to his four-legged companions, Olly and Savannah – his adorable French Bulldogs.  As mentioned before, Dan’s attention to detail & care is impeccable. And discovering the “perfect” toothpaste for his dogs is charmingly symbolic of that.
