Phil Walden Custom Opticians is locally owned by Phil Walden, A.B.O.C. (American Board of Opticians Certified). After graduating from Georgetown High School, Phil enrolled in the ophthalmic dispensing program at Tyler Junior College. During college, Phil served internships and apprentice programs at several optometrist’s office and optical stores in Tyler Texas. The next nine years Phil managed optical stores and optical laboratories in East Texas focusing on customer service to eyeglass wearers.
In 1987 Phil semi retired to dedicate more time to family and further studies at University of Texas with Business management as his career objective. Phil relocated his family back to Georgetown in 1998 and managed and owned three optical clinics employing ophthalmologist and optometrist as well as operating a full service optical lab to supply the optical. In 2007 and 2009 the stores were sold to doctors and Phil once again semi retired. Six months later Phil opened Phil Walden Custom Opticians in the Williamsburg shopping center on Williams Drive.
