Apex Eyecare, a new optometry practice located in the Tanger Outlets shopping center in Tilton, recently opened their doors with financing from MVSB. They offer routine and medical eye exams, including an optical shop with a wide selection of contact lenses and glasses.

Dr. Deidre Cullen is a licensed Optometrist and Samantha Sarson is a licensed Optician with several years of experience in the eye care field. They worked closely with Dan Osetek, MVSB Senior Vice President, Commercial Lending Team Leader, and used MVSB’s specialized medical professional practice loan to finance their new practice.

“It was an honor to help Deidre and Samantha achieve their dreams of opening their own practice and we are excited to welcome Apex Eyecare to the region,” said Osetek. “They took advantage of our relatively new and innovative financing option for qualified medical practices. The flexible loan terms allowed them to access financing quickly and will allow them to focus on what really matters most – their patients.”

“It has been a vision of ours to open our own practice and the Lakes Region communities have been nothing but welcoming to us,” said Dr. Cullen. “We are proud to offer full-service optometry exams and are fully stocked with frames for the whole family – from infant to adult sizes. We are also thankful to Dan and the whole team at MVSB, who really went above and beyond in turning our dream into reality.”

Dr. Cullen graduated as salutatorian of her class at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2018. Sarson is an American Board of Opticianry (ABO) certified optician that started her career in 2011. Prior to opening Apex Eyecare, Dr. Cullen and Sarson worked together for a Concord-based eye care practice since 2018. Both reside in Laconia and are excited to build their eye care practice close to home and help serve the eye care needs of the local communities.
