About The Staff

Julie Bart

Hi, I’m Julie…I am unbelievably happy to have landed at Westlake Hills Vision Center with Dr. Elizondo and our awesome crew.

If you haven’t met me another optical here in Westlake, let me tell you a bit about me.  I moved here 6 years ago with my lovely husband David and beloved aussie Tuesday.  We have a slight obsession with Australian shepherds.  I digress… We live in Briarcliff and love the country life.  The two things I am missing here though are our adult boys..one in Lubbock and the other in Minneapolis.

Our move was from the north, Minn-E-soooota.  you may hear my accent sneak out with certain words and if you ask I can do your entire appointment sounding like the movie Fargo.

Since 1984, I have been in the optical industry.  Honing and perfecting my skills to make the chore of choosing eyewear easy peasy…loaded with laughs and my honest opinion to make you look fabulous.

My belief in fine eyewear and lenses started many years ago when I was working in Minneapolis at a pediatric office.  Realizing children were in dire need for great eyewear and I found my calling.  I helped design lines and colorways for many manufacturers and also did public speaking for ophthalmologists and optometrist regarding children’s eyewear and fit.

After we moved here I struggled to find a place that could utilize my skill set.  I wanted to help fit, but also design and purchase the frames so I could take pride in selling them to all my favorite clients.  I sure do hope to see y’all soon…doncha know.

Hello! My name is Hayley and I am relatively new to Austin. I am originally from Fort Collins,
Colorado, but moved here in November of 2021. I adore Austin, and am so happy to be living
here with my beautiful fiance and our cat Dinah. I am a huge nerd. I love DnD, video games,
sci-fi, Star Wars, you name it I probably like it. I am very thankful to be here at Westlake Hills
Vision Center. I love learning about our patients and sharing my knowledge with them as well.

Howdy, I’m Lauren, and I’d love to find you the perfect frames to match your style.  I love fun eyewear if in all types: bold colors, interesting shapes – you name it!  I also enjoy the technical side of being an optician, whether it is figuring out the best lens for your prescription or fixing a frame that has seen better days.  There is no challenge I won’t take on!  Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband, daughter, and two dogs.
