About Us

Since 1966 the Elk River Eye Clinic has provided the highest quality eye care to the people of Elk River and the surrounding areas. Starting with a part-time Optometrist and one staff member, the clinic has grown to include two full-time Optometrists and a full staff.

Due to this rapid growth, the clinic moved in 2007 to a new state of the art facility which is now located on Freeport Street in Elk River. The new clinic allows us to improve patient care with new types of eye care services, technologically advanced diagnostic equipment, and a greater selection of fashionable eyewear.
