Meet Our Staff
Lisa Perrotti, Office Manager
Lisa was born and raised in Plainville and still resides here today with her High School Sweetheart husband and 2 children. She has 30+ years of experience in the optical industry, with more than 20 years serving as our office manager. She takes pride in assisting all of our patients in every aspect of their eye care, including eyewear choices, contact lens choices, insurance questions as well as other general questions on eye health and disease. Lisa is very involved in the community, and practically knows all of our local patients by name. Lisa is the most tenured staff member in our office, just after Dr. Maglio himself. And we hope to keep it that way!

Iwona currently resides in Bristol with her husband and daughter. She was born in Poland and speaks fluent Polish, which is very helpful in assisting our Polish-speaking patients. She has over 20 years of experience in optical dispensing as well as operating our in-office lab, which allows us to offer fast and accurate eyewear service. Her product knowledge is extensive and allows her to offer the best and most appropriate eyewear for all of our patients. Iwona and Lisa are very active in choosing the latest and most fashionable eyewear for our patients – let them help you decide on a new style for you, today.
Darcy was raised in Bristol and now resides with her family in New Britain. She is a staple at our front desk and is the person who initially greets you and welcomes you to our office. She will check you in, gather and help you with your insurance needs, and collect all necessary personal information so that we may better serve you. She is very familiar with most insurers and will be happy to explain all of the options available to you. Darcy also assists in contact lens purchasing, billing , explaining and collecting all applicable fees at the time of service. From her vantage point, Darcy keeps our ship sailing in the right direction and on time throughout the day!
Melissa joined our team in 2015 after spending several years in child care services. Her experience working with small children shines through when pre-testing the many children that Dr. McCleary sees every day. She provides all pre-testing and ancillary testing to our patients, in addition to maintaining our contact lens department and performing contact lens teaches. She always has a smile on her face and is ready, and willing, to address any of our patient needs at a moment’s notice.
Melissa and her husband have recently purchased their first home. After much DIY’ing, they now reside in Southington.
Barbara began her career in 2003 as an Optician Apprentice learning and practicing the fitting and dispensing of eyewear and contact lenses. In 2005, her interest in the clinical side of Ophthalmology led her to pursue CMSS certification as a Medical Scribe in the general field of Ophthalmology as well as in the sub-specialty field of glaucoma.
With constant advancements in treatments and technology, Barbara continues to develop her qualifications and is currently persuing CPOA certification in the field of Optometry.
Since joining Drs Maglio and McCleary in 2016, Barbara has enjoyed her role as an Ophthalmic Assistant and “values being part of this talented and compassionate team.” She truly loves working for a smaller practice where she states she can better connect with patients needs and interact with the doctors to perform, sometimes, life-changing improvements.
Barbara lives in Southington with her husband Ken and Jack Russell, Gunnar. She has 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren.
Her longtime passion involves volunteering and contributing to several community and global outreach ministries to include hunger relief through the “Feed My Starving Children” foundation and local human trafficking advocacy through the “Bags of Hope” campaign.
Yomaries is the newest member of our team, joining the practice in 2017. She has been in the ophthalmologic/optometric field since 2011, working directly with patients as a technician performing entrance testing as well as verifying insurance benefits and eligibility. Her fluent Spanish has been a welcome addition to our patient services, in all departments. You may see Yomaries at the front desk welcoming patients to the practice, pre-testing patients, performing ancillary testing and contact lens teaches or even helping out in the Optical.
Yomaries currently resides in New Britain with her fiancé and her 2 children.
