Randall Returns to Eclectic Eye

Randall Bennett is back at Eclectic Eye!

We’re so excited to share that Randall Bennett has joined the Eclectic Eye team after a five year hiatus. He will be working as an Eyewear Architect, and we know our team and customers are ecstatic to have him back.

Randall first joined Eclectic Eye in 2003 and spent seven years with us. Now that he’s joined the team again, we decided to sit down and ask him a few questions.

What inspired you to start a career in optics?
I needed my first pair of glasses when I was 20 years old, and the process to select which frame was best for me was very overwhelming and difficult. Once I finally found a pair, I thought about how interesting a career in optics would be. I told myself that if I sold eyewear, I would work my hardest to ensure the customer finds the right frame and that the process would be smooth and seamless, unlike my first experience.

Why did you decide to come back to Eclectic Eye?
I missed the Eclectic Eye team, our loyal customers and working in the vibrant community that is Midtown. What can I say, Eclectic Eye is the best!

What are you most looking forward to about working with us again?
The awesome customers! They are so loving and it’s been fun to see familiar faces come by the store to welcome me back.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I truly enjoy helping educate the patients and customers on the importance of eyewear. As a Licensed Dispensing Optician, I can measure, reshape and adjust eyeglasses to ensure a perfect fit and that the patient seeing what they should be with their prescription.

What’s your favorite line that Eclectic Eye carries?
Theo! They have such well-designed eyewear, and all their frames are great for stronger prescription lenses. The colors and combinations that Theo uses are very unique, so you’ll always be wearing an original piece when you’re in Theo.
