COLORADO SPRINGS — It seems in the blink of an eye our lives changed when COVID-19 hit, but imagine owning your own business, with plans to expand, only to have to shut it down.

It happened to Dr. Ted and Christina Lymer, who both own Lymer vision, formerly known as Rocky Mountain Eye Care, inside Chapel Hills mall. For several years they've been growing their company in the Springs.

"None of us knew at the time how big this was going to get," said Dr. Ted Lymer, Optometrist, and Co-owner of Lymer Vision.

The Lymers feared the worst when they had to close for three months during the pandemic. They were right in the middle of building new office space in Briargate, plus they had a staff who needed their jobs to support their families.

"They have families and responsibilities too so we just wanted to be there for them," Lymer said.

The Lymers decided to still keep paying their employees even though their doors were closed. Now that they're open, they need more people on board to serve their clients.

"Job candidates have to be people-oriented and they've got to be understanding," he said. "We're here for the patients so it's incredibly important that we are able to connect. First and foremost, we are looking for that outgoing individual."
