Helen Reed

Practice Administrator / Eyewear Optical Manager 


Helen is originally from Ohio. In her teens, her family moved to Pennsylvania. Shortly afterwards, she met her soul mate and got married. She is blessed with 2 beautiful daughters and 3 wonderful grandchildren.

Helen has been part of the optical field for about 28 years. She has been part of the Gettysburg Ophthalmology/Eyewear Shop family for almost 17 years. She joined our practice as an Optician and was promoted to the Optical Manager due to her hard work and years of dedication.

Helen prides herself in customer service and has been honored to work with great patients at Gettysburg Ophthalmology.  She has been part of this office for so long that it has allowed her to meet several generations.  Patients jokingly say Helen is part of the “woodwork” at Gettysburg Ophthalmology.

She enjoys assisting patients pick out the perfect frame style and adjusts them for a comfortable and stylish fit.  When needed, Helen feels she has excellent optical trouble shooting skills.  She continues her training with Essilor to ensure patients are delivered the most up-to-date technology/glasses that best meet their needs.

She has years of experience and knowledge with different insurance companies.  Even if the Eyewear Shop does not participate in your insurance plan, she can assist you in submitting your claim.  Likewise, Helen believes in always exceeding the patient’s expectations.
