Personality Plus at I-Topian

I-Topian is anything but a typical optical store. It’s a fashionable boutique offering high-tech exams and top of the line craftsmanship by a staff that welcomes you like you’re a long lost friend.

It’s not just the technology, but the people that make this local business click. People like Tonya Johnson, who are passionate about what they do and who are committed to excellence, keep customers coming back.

Tonya started as frame stylist and sales assistant at I-Topian more than 20 years ago. After getting her real estate license, she switched careers, but now says, “I came back to work at I-Topian for fun.” She gushes, “I just love it. I love working with the owners, Kelly and Craig (Chasnov), and I love working with the clients.”

Originally from Illinois, Tonya came down to Southwest Florida to visit her sister. She laughs, “It was spring break my sophomore year in college and I called my mom to ship my clothes to me because I wasn’t coming home.”

Tonya’s optical experience goes well beyond the showroom. She has also been involved with ophthalmologists saying, “I worked with doctors who specialized in retinas and also for an ocular plastic surgeon.”

But her personality drew her to sales, so she brought her medical background to I-Topian where she also has a knack for style and design.

About I-Topian, she says, “We have choices and selections that you cant find anywhere else, not to mention superior quality. I’ve had clients coming in for 20 years. We sell great products and stand behind our work.”

At other optical boutiques, you can choose between different levels of quality lenses. Because of the bright sunlight in Southwest Florida, it’s more important than ever to have the best. Tonya says, “All of our lenses come with protective coating; you don’t even have to ask. We care about our clients and the health of their eyes so the coating is inclusive.”

That coating protects the retina from degenerative UVA rays. Tonya also helps sportsmen and women find the right kind of polarized lenses for their sunglasses to not only protect their eyes but also help them see more clearly.

Your vision is important. Don’t settle for cheap Internet lenses and frames; you get what you pay for. See Tonya and the staff at I-Topian for outstanding service and quality.
