Denise Burtzlaff, CPOA – Receptionist

Denise grew up in Custer, SD. She joined our staff in 2008. She enjoys working with the public and has experience in the tourism industry, bookkeeping and banking. She earned certification as a Paraoptometic Assistant. She learned that optometry is so much more that just testing the eyes for glasses and that eye health exams can prevent many conditions that go unnoticed.

She is glad she lives in the Black Hills where she enjoys her family, hiking, camping, gardening and touring on motorcycle.


Amanda Karas, CPO-Technician

Amanda grew up in Ireton, IA where she graduated in 2010. After graduating high school, she moved to Brookings, SD to attend South Dakota State University. She graduated from SDSU in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. She moved to the Black Hills in 2015 at which time she worked as a technician and scribe for a retinal ophthalmologist for 6 years. While visiting all that the Black Hills has to offer, she and her husband fell in love with Hot Springs and the people of the community. Vision Source was the perfect opportunity to not only continue to work in eye care but be a part of an amazing staff and the community. She strives to give the best care she can and loves working with such friendly patients.
She loves living in the Black Hills where she is able to hike, fish, camp, and spend time with her husband and dogs.
