Women In Optometry: Built on Family Pride

By

Sisters Giulia Tinari, OD, and Paola Tinari grew up admiring the work ethic of their parents, who immigrated to the U.S. from Italy as teenagers. “Our parents have always put our welfare first and worked extremely hard to put us through school,” Dr. Tinari said. Now, together, Dr. Tinari and Paola Tinari are putting forth their own efforts as they dedicate their new practice, Sorella Optique and Eyecare, to their parents. This practice has been a dream in the works for many years. Dr. Tinari started working in the industry at 17 as an optician, and when she went to attend the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in 2010, her sister Paola Tinari stepped in and filled her position at the optometry office where she had been working. Both sisters fell in love with the idea of a boutique optometry practice and decided that one day they’d have their own.
