Kyle Oertwig
Optician

Hello, my name is Kyle. I have been an optician for a little over 10 years. ABO certified for 2 of those years. I used to work for big corporations, but I’ve found that private practice is what I enjoy the most. There’s a personal experience you have with patients that you cant get from big opticals. Besides optics, I also enjoy anything outdoors in my spare time. Like cycling, hiking, and camping.

Valerie Mata
Opticial Tech

Hi my name is Valerie! I’ve worked with eyes since 2014 and have been with sunburst optical for almost two years. I graduated from Ciénaga high school and attended Pima JTED. I love my job because I get to learn about optics everyday. It has been fascinating getting to understand how my own eyesight functions. My dog KoKo is my only child; she is a German Shepard and a handful. I am the oldest child in my family with one younger sister and brother. I love spending time with my family on the weekends especially when I get to see my two godsons.
