DRS. JENNA & TRAVIS ZIGLER
SeeOO and SeeEO (Co-Founders) at Eye Love
Dr. Jenna graduated in 2011 from The Ohio State University College of Optometry second in her class with Summa Cum Laude honors. She did her undergraduate studies in Brain, Behavior, and Cognitive Science at the University of Michigan. Dr. Jenna has most recently served as trustee of the Central Ohio Optometric Association. She is currently a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and a member of the American Optometric Association. When she's not in clinic or working diligently on Eye Love, she enjoys running for fun, traveling to new places and exploring new cuisines, writing, and peanut butter. Lots and lots of peanut butter.
Dr. Travis graduated in 2010 from The Ohio State University College of Optometry with Magna Cum Laude honors. He also did his undergraduate studies at OSU. Dr. Travis has most recently served as Zone Governor of the Central Ohio Optometric Association. He is also a member of the American Optometric Association and a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. Dr. Travis specializes in “difficult to fit” contact lenses for patients with astigmatism, patients that need bifocals, keratoconus, and dry eye. Dr. Travis is a fellow of the Scleral Lens Society, which is given to eye care physicians that have demonstrated excellence in scleral lens fitting. When he's not working on Eye Love or in clinic, he enjoys traveling to Jamaica, training for marathons, and playing the ukulele while he drinks his morning coffee.
We have been actively involved with Volunteers for Optometric Services to Humanity, which is a group that travels worldwide to give eye examinations to people who cannot afford nor obtain such care. We have made trips to Ecuador, Peru, and Jamaica twice, and have plans to participate in future missions.
We started Eye Love in May of 2015 with our ultimate goal being to build permanent clinics in areas that have no access to quality eye care. As active members of Great Shape, Inc, and more specifically the iCARE project, we travel to Jamaica every year to give eye examinations and dispense eyeglasses. With proper help and funding, Great Shape Inc. is working to develop more permanent clinics, and our ultimate goal is to be able to work in those clinics more often.
As a company, we want you to feel good about your purchase and who you do business with. Our passion is to provide a better quality of life through better vision -- locally and globally. Locally we do this by helping you see the clearest that you can. Globally by giving a portion of profits back to someone in need of an eye examination and glasses in Jamaica.

Fun Fact: Jenna went to the University of Michigan (the Wolverines) and Travis went to The Ohio State University (the Buckeyes). Some consider this to be the fiercest rivalry in all of sports, but the rivalry is what brought us together and we still have a heated day of football watching when the two clash in late November! Watch this short video for a better understanding (no, this is not us)! :)
