Matteo Schmader

Board- Certified Optician

Matteo Schmader has been a prominent leader in the Optical industry for over 20 years. Originally from Italy, he settled into life in the DC area and he began his career in 1999 as a recruit for Lenscrafters. Because of his firm beliefs in patient care and working in a family-based environment, he moved into private practice where he was able to gain valuable experience expanding and managing several optical offices. In 2010, he decided to follow his dreams and move to sunny California. Here, he not only followed his passion for the Optical industry, but became an advocate and volunteer in the pride and vision communities. 

Matteo maintains a sincere, patient conscience approach to the field, and works to create a rapport with patients, allowing them to feel warm and at ease in his care. He concentrates on making the eyewear experience fun and vibrant, and especially making it you.

When out of the office, Matteo enjoys exploring new restaurants with his husband Marcus, sailing, gardening, photography, and caring for his loving puppy Helen.
