Caila Russell, D.O.

Licensed Optician/Owner CR Optical


I started in the Optical Industry in 1996 as an Optometrist Assistant and a Lab Technician. Working in the lab helped familiarize myself with the many different lenses that are in the industry. In 2005 I decided I wanted to further my career and take the Optical Science Program to become an Optician.

I was licensed in 2007 and required to maintain and demonstrate knowledge and skill in the field every year, either at live events or through networking.

I enjoy nothing more than finding the perfect pair of glasses that fit you best with the perfect lenses that suit your needs which is why i decided to open my own Optical in November 2019. 

I have lived in the Bridgewater surrounding area my whole life, love to be with my family and hang out with my two Border Collies and absolutely love to travel! 

I currently reside in Conquerall Bank with my husband (Jason) and son (Ethan), please feel free to come by my store and share a few stories. 

Mission Statement -  "My mission is to become a leader in the Optical field by providing the highest level of customer service along with a quality branded product that is visually appealing and affordable for our Senior, Middle Age and Youth population. "


DDayna  Bowman joined the CR Optical team in February 2020.  Dayna has worked in the optical industry since 2017 and became a licensed Optician August of 2019.

Caila is excited to have Dayna join the business and looks forward to working with her.
