Eddie grew up in optics and was born and raised in Hoboken. His father, Ruben, first opened the Hoboken store (in this exact location) nearly four decades ago and Eddie has been a part of the business since 2001. Starting as a frame stylist, Eddie realized he was quite passionate about this career early on in the process.. In 2008, he passed his New Jersey State Ophthalmic Dispenser License. In 2011, he moved to California after meeting his wife, Vanessa, and managed a well-established shop on the West Coast, taking the values of Wise with him on the road.
Eddie is a Hoboken resident and enjoys meeting members of the community as he goes about his daily routine. He believes in honest, fair pricing and makes sure that you will always be taken care of when you come into Wise Vision.
