Amanda Diaz – Ophthalmic Technician

Amanda Diaz

Amanda grew up and lived in Alton, Illinois, where she graduated from Alton High School in 2006. Although she now works in the eye care industry, she is also a certified dental assistant. She has worked at Drake Eye Center since 2018. She spends the majority of her time working up patients for the doctor, which includes all pre-testing, glaucoma work-up and fundus photography. She also helps out in the optical as needed, with cutting/edging lenses. Of all the Drake Eye Center employees (past or present), she is probably the fastest learner we have ever had. She is funny, always kind to the patients, and laughs like Fran Drescher from The Nanny (but not in an annoying way).

Amanda is happily married to her husband Franky. They have three children, Eliana, Camila, and Dominic. In her spare time, she enjoys anything related to personal fitness and coaching her children’s sports, as well as actively serving in her home church.
