Baltimore Contact Lens Technician Lorie Ford

We wanted you to meet Baltimore Washington Eye Center Contact Lens Technician Lorie Ford. Lorie has been in ophthalmology for over 28 years. She spent the first 3 years as a technician before focusing her attention on the contact lens specialty.  After her contact lens training, she passed the National Contact Lens Examiner’s exam, and so the last 5 years have been dedicated to the contact lens industry.  The thing Lorie treasures most about her position here at the Baltimore Washington Eye Center are her patients, especially the children.

Getting started with contact lenses is exciting and a little intimidating. Lorie excels at helping new contact lens wearers gain confidence and in helping them master the intricacies of contact lens wear and care. She finds it extremely rewarding to help patients of all ages achieve their best vision with comfort and clarity, giving them a new outlook on life.

Being a “Baby Boomer” herself, Lorie is excited about the new multifocal contact lens technology that is now available.  If your arms aren’t long enough anymore, the lighting is too dim or they’re simply making the print too small, then perhaps Lorie can help you.

Outside of work Lorie enjoys gardening, her family's cat Mr. Whiskers and rooting for the Baltimore Ravens. We are happy to have Lorie and all of her ophthalmic experience here at the Baltimore Washington Eye Center.
