Dr. Lori Berwald

It is with a mix of emotions that I write to inform you of my upcoming retirement from patient care after 20 fulfilling years as your optometrist at Grin Eye Care. This decision was not made lightly, but after much reflection and consideration, I believe it is the right time for me to embark on this new chapter in my life.

Over the past two decades, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your eye care provider. Building relationships with each and every one of my patients has been the highlight of my career. Your trust in me and the opportunity to contribute to your eye health and overall well-being have been deeply rewarding.

I have cherished the moments spent getting to know you and your families, learning about your lives, and witnessing the joy of improved vision or assisting you in finding solutions to your eye-related concerns. Your loyalty and support have been the driving force behind my passion for optometry, and for that, I am sincerely grateful.

While I am closing this chapter of my professional journey, please know that your eye care remains a top priority for me. I have taken great care in planning for a smooth transition to ensure that you continue to receive the high-quality care you deserve. My colleagues at Grin Eye Care are experienced and dedicated professionals who will continue to provide you with excellent service and personalized attention.

As I look forward to the next phase of my life, I will always carry with me the memories and relationships which developed. While I may no longer be your optometrist, I hope our paths will cross again in the future.

Thank you once again for entrusting me with your eye care needs. It has been an absolute pleasure serving you, and I wish you continued health and happiness in the years to come.

Warmest regards,

Dr. Berwald
