Jennifer Santacruz

Senior Optometric Technician

I enjoy getting to know our patients and assisting them with finding solutions that best benefits them and addresses their needs. As a mother of two young daughters, I know how important it is to keep a smile on their face to help make their day just that much better. Everyday, I try to do the same for our patients and hope to make their day a little brighter. For my spare time, I enjoy taking local hikes with my family and spending time with my children.

Edric Mendoza

Optometric Technician

I have been in the Optical industry since 2004. I try to bring a diverse experience to Clear Concepts Optometry, as I have worked in several different types of Optometry and Ophthalmology practices.

My areas of expertise include practice management, frame styling, contact lens training, and I have a vast knowledge of eyeglass lens materials.

I currently live in San Jose, Ca. I also run my own online DJ radio station in my free time. And I LOVE Disneyland! "Don't believe me, ask the dishes"
