Doug has been with Russ’ Uptown Optical since its beginning in 1978. Doug is responsible for growing the business to what we know it as today. If he doesn’t call you out by name when you walk in the door, it must be your first time stopping in.
Having grown up in and around the optical world, Doug’s son Kyle joined Russ’ Uptown Optical in 2013. Kyle is proud to be working in the family business and continue the tradition. Not only does he care about finding the best lens product for each customer’s needs, but he is also passionate about helping customers find their unique style.
Michelle began in the optical industry when she was 18 years old, working at her father’s laboratory in Johnston 15 years. After her father’s retirement in 2005, she joined Russ’ Uptown Optical. She has a knack for finding each customer a fun, unique frame to fit them perfectly!
