Hilda McFall Fialko started her optical career at Smith Optical in Inverness. Hilda managed Smith Optical at West Coast Eye Institute until 1993 when the optical became part of West Coast Eye Institute; she worked there until 2003. In 2005 she fulfilled her dream of owning her own optical business when she purchased Optical Express in the Crystal River Mall. She moved Optical Express into Heritage Village in October 2010 and changed the name to MezMerEyes. MezMerEyes is more the “boutique” Hilda has always wanted. She feels the residents of Citrus County shouldn’t have to drive to larger cities to get designer collections and quality products. Visit Hilda and her staff at MezMerEyes, “Where eclectic funk meets simple elegance in eyewear”. Hilda is a board certified Optician, a member of Professional Opticians of Florida, the American Board of Opticians, and the National Contact Lens Examiners.
