Our Staff

At VisionArts, our caring friendly staff is our greatest asset. They are excited about what they do, and they strive to provide our patients with superior care and service.

Vonnie Estes

Patient Technician

Joining the practice in September of 2016, Vonnie brought with her 11 years of experience in eye care.  As a patient technician, she performs the testing needed in order to prepare our patients to see Dr. Vann.  Vonnie is an outgoing and vibrant person who joyfully interacts with our patients.  Her favorite part of working here is hearing our patients tell her how much fun they have coming to visit us for their exams.  When Vonnie isn’t at work, she devotes her time to her husband Charlie.  They love nature and enjoy being outdoors, especially fishing.  Vonnie is also a creative and talented photographer.

Crystal Hinten

Doctor’s Assistant

Crystal joined VisionArts in the spring of 2017 as one of Dr. Vann’s assistants. During exams, she works with Dr. Vann to enter notes into patient records, review test results with patients, and to help them understand how to properly care for their eye health and vision. She enjoys meeting and working with patients in our fun and caring environment. In addition to assisting the doctor during exams, Crystal performs various follow up tests that may be necessary for certain eye conditions. Outside of the office, she devotes her free time to her family and especially enjoys being a grandma.
