Please welcome Dr. Jacquelyn Kuta to our practice. Dr. Kuta is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and went to Optometry School at the Illinois College of Optometry, graduating in 2016.

In 2016, Dr. Kuta moved to Cleveland to do a residency in ocular disease at the Louis Stokes VA.

She grew to really enjoy Cleveland, so she decided to stay. She loves our downtown/Playhouse Square areas as well as the nearby beaches and ALL the Metro-Parks.

She spends time with her pet tortoise Ferdinand who is less than a year old. Make an appointment with Dr. Kuta, and she will show you pictures of Ferdinand!!!


Carol Gale, Licensed Dispensing Optician

Carol has been a licensed optician for over 30 years.  She loves to help her patients “step out of the box” when trying on frames to achieve a new look.  One of her favorite jobs are buying new frames for the office. She likes it so much that Shelly has to rein her in.

Carol also can edge lenses for you while you wait.

When not working, you can find her on the golf course, trying to improve her game.  (There is a lot to improve!!)


Shelly, Licensed Dispensing Optician

You can find Shelly working with one of many different “hats” on.  She is a licensed optician as well as our office manager.  She has been with Gale’s Vision Source for the past 7 years, but has been in the optical field for over 25.

Shelly is extremely good at solving any problems that come along, either with frame and lens selection or figuring out insurance situations.

She has three children that keep her busy! There are also two adorable dogs to round out her family, along with her husband Ryan.

Stop in any time for an adjustment or to just say hi!
