Linda Gleitz

ABO Certified Optician

Linda studied art at the University of Colorado and began working at College Optical part time as a student in 1978. Turned out the income from the optical job was much more reliable than art (who knew?). She became a certified optician and raised two fabulous children and helped College Optical become the high end, eclectic, great service oriented business that it is today. She has recently made the leap to full time artist (her passion) but keeps tabs on College Opt working Mondays. She is known for her optical expertise and artistic approach to frame styling…she would love to help you pick out your next pair.
