Shannon Pinder

Receptionist

Shannon deeply understands the patient experience in eye care. Since 1995, she’s worked in various positions such as being the surgical coordinator for an ophthalmologist, she’s worked as an ophthalmology tech, and she’s owned 2 full service optical shops. When she sets up your appointments, looks up your insurance, orders your contacts, or helps you at the front desk for other situations, know that she understands the eye care world from various perspectives. Patients also have appreciated that she’s let them know that they’ve had insurance when they didn’t think they had it, which has made eye care more affordable for them.

On top of all of this, Shannon has been an ABO (American Board of Opticianry) certified optician.

Shannon enjoys being a wife, mother, and a grandmother to the most handsomest grandson there is.


Stephen Clark

Technician

Stephen adds his skillful touch to the patients he pretests in our fine community of Grove & the surrounding areas. He has 3 years of experience in optical tomography (OCT imaging). During that time, he worked under an ophthalmologist and checked eye pressures and did cataract and LASIK testing. At Burke Eyecare, Stephen operates our OCT to monitor retina & nerve disease such as macular degeneration & glaucoma. This can also help with detecting early stages of blindness.

Additionally, Stephen does visual field tests, which detect visual field loss due to glaucoma. He does contact lens training so people can be comfortable putting on and taking off contacts for the first time. In our onsite lab, Stephen enjoys cutting lenses to put into patient’s eyeglasses.

Stephen is a prior United States Marine who was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. When he’s not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 beautiful children. He also enjoys anything related to sports, music and art. He especially likes the outdoors & canoeing.


Franklin Morris II

Lab Tech


Franklin runs our onsite optical lab where he cuts lenses to fit into eyeglass frames. Depending on the insurance used, this allows people to get their lenses cut in a more timely manner. In addition, if people decide to keep their frames but just change the lenses, Franklin can cut their lenses at Burke Eyecare in around a 30 minute period of time on a scheduled basis after we receive their lens shipment. This allows people to keep their frames with them instead of having them sent to an out-of-town lab to be processed.

To help you get to know Dr. Burke better, Franklin worked behind the scenes on creating the Ask Grove’s Eye Doctor videos on YouTube as well as the AskGrovesEyeDoctor.com website. He enjoys giving more people the opportunity to benefit from Burke Eyecare’s services via his passion with marketing.

Among other things, Franklin has fun learning Spanish and growing plants in pots.
