Team expansion reflects Euclid’s focus on practice management assistance and commitment to customer support.
Euclid Systems Corporation, a global leader in advanced orthokeratology and proactive myopia management, is pleased to announce the expansion of its US commercial team with the addition of Kellie Wesley, who has joined the company as a National Account Manager, and Christie Yee, who was welcomed aboard as Euclid’s Practice Management Specialist.
The pair’s robust and diverse eye care experience reflects Euclid’s ongoing commitment to providing eye care professionals (ECPs) with the tools necessary to succeed at the burgeoning intersection of myopia management and practice management. The need for myopia management is urgent, with almost five billion people expected to have myopia by 2050.1 If left untreated, myopia significantly increases the risks for glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal disease.2-4

Their expertise and skills will enable Euclid to assist more ECPs with delivering best-in-class myopia management services to more patients,” said David Bland, Vice President of Sales. “Kellie’s role is geared toward enabling Euclid to deliver a focused effort on national accounts and strategic ECP groups. Christie’s role focuses on enabling Euclid to provide critical practice management assistance for our customers that struggle with implementing a comprehensive myopia management program or want to take their existing myopia management program to the next level.”
Ms. Wesley joins Euclid after almost a decade in the medical device industry, including a lengthy period with Hoya Vision Care, where she was responsible for the development and relationship retention of group purchasing organizations (GPOs), private equity (PE) groups, consulting organizations, and other national accounts.
