Dr. Mark Kahrhoff
Dr. Kahrhoff started Complete Safety to fill a need for an eye safety company dedicated to the highest standards of professional ethics and competency, one committed to providing a full spectrum of support for customers.
Complete Safety is not an eyeglass company. We are experts in medicine, optics, human eye health, and visual performance. We incorporate that expertise in creating customized safety eyewear.
An eye safety company must do more than sell people glasses. Customers need support to develop a sustainable eye safety program; to educate employees on eye safety and first aid; and to help employees achieve maximum visual performance. All of these essential services are available at no charge to our customers.
Dr. Kahrhoff is the founding member of Complete Eye Safety and serves as its Managing Director. He oversees all manufacturing and education programs. In addition to his active clinical practice, Dr. Kahrhoff has been involved in research, teaching, and innovations in the management of eye disease. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force.
