LEWISTON — Optician Lori Braverman of Family Eye Health & Contact Lens Center received recognition recently for writing the winning entry in a national essay contest sponsored in part by Optical Vision Resources.

The recognition occurred at the International Vision Expo East in New York City on March 24.

The contest asked participants to write about a past Vision Expo experience. The essay by Braverman, who has attended the annual event 13 years, chronicled her work helping a local client who was recovering from an accident that drastically impaired her vision and facial features.

Braverman credited a course she took at the Vision Expo shortly before seeing the woman with giving her the inspiration and information needed to help the client regain her self-esteem following the life-changing accident.

In addition to the recognition and a swag bag full of gifts for her first-place essay, Braverman also received a two-night stay in the executive suite at the Grand Central Hotel in Manhattan.
