COVID-19 UPDATE 05/6/2020

Dear Valued Patients,

We hope all of you are staying well! We are expanding the hours we are open to take care of your vision problems, eyewear/contact lens needs and urgencies! We are now open M-F 8 am—4 pm. If you have a vision need that needs to be addressed, give us a call and we will be happy to address your needs or concerns.

We are taking the greatest measures for proper safety protocols to ensure your safety and ours. We ask that you wear a protective mask and fill out as much paperwork as possible prior to arriving for your appointment. Forms will be available through our patient portal, our website, or you may pick up printed forms from our office. We also ask that you come by yourself to your appointment, or with as few people as possible.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we make all these changes at this time. We miss our patients and look forward to seeing you soon. Read about our safety protocols here.

Our Staff

Our exceptional, friendly staff is our greatest asset. They are excited about our services, and they care personally about getting the best results for our patients.

Our receptionists will try to accommodate your busy schedule by finding appointments that suit your needs. We will help you understand your insurance coverage and if financial arrangements are necessary, we will be glad to help you develop a plan to make your vision care treatment possible.

Our Flagstaff Family

Our father-daughter optometrist duo, Dr. Patrick Padrnos and Dr. Sarah Padrnos-Hulen, is knowledgeable and experienced in handling every eye and vision need, while our other daughter, licensed optician Jamie Padrnos-Sema, will handle all your optical needs. We pride ourselves on keeping up-to-date with modern optometric technology and contemporary treatments. Whether you need a routine adult eye exam, a pediatric eye exam, treatment for ocular disease, a contact lens fitting for hard-to-fit conditions or co-management of laser surgery, we’ll meet you with a smile and great advice!


Jamie Padrnos

Licensed Optician, Manager

Jamie was raised in Flagstaff and opened the family practice with her father in June of 2003. Becoming very interested in the optical field, and working in the industry for over 10 years, Jamie propelled herself to excellence while pursuing her Optician's license. Jamie earned her license in September of 2005 and now manages the optical. She has a friendly smile and warm personality.

Jamie is hard-working and diligent, always aiming to please, and always going "the extra mile" for our patients.  She is constantly brainstorming new and exciting ideas for the future of Flagstaff Vision.


Dana Cake

Assistant Manager, Coding & Billing Specialist

Dana is an Arizona native. She grew up in Winslow and made the move to Flagstaff approximately 15 years ago. She has been an Optician for 18 years and came to work for us in the summer of 2005. Dana is dedicated and hard-working and still finds time to make us smile. Occasionally we get to hear her amazing vocals and see her wicked dance moves. Dana is beautiful inside as well as out. She is an indispensable part of Flagstaff Vision (as she often reminds us). She's as good as family.


Joani Flanagan

ABO, Dispensing Optician

Joani has been in the optical business for over 20 years. She made the move from the northwest to our southwestern mountain town in December of 2009. One word I would use to describe our fiery red head is "cool". When asked what drew her to Flagstaff she replied "Deep blue skies and miles of mountain bike trails." Her laid back, easy going demeanor, along with her experience has made her an essential as well as enjoyable addition to the
Flagstaff Vision team. We are lucky to have her.


Ashlie Hoffman

Optician, Optical Manager

As a Flagstaff native, Ashlie enjoys getting outdoors and taking advantage of the beautiful, Flagstaff scenery. She has a passion for photography and owns her own small business on the side. Ashlie came to work with Flagstaff Vision in May of 2013. She has a thirst for knowledge and continues to impress us with her ability to learn. Being a fashion-forward guru, Ashlie has propelled herself to the top of our "eyewear stylist" list. If you are looking for a hot new look, Ashlie is the go-to girl!
