The past 40 years for Professional Eyecare and the Eyewear Gallery are certainly worthy of celebration. Dr. Roger McCartney opened Professional Eyecare on September 1, 1975. Twenty-five years later in 2000, Dr. Brandon Blair joined the team. The most recent growth of their business occurred this year when Dr. Mindy Dorsey joined Professional Eyecare. Professional Eyecare started with one employee and has since growth to now have 12 full time team members.
Their business has also grown in terms of geographic space. Dr. McCartney’s optometric practice began in a small office in the basement of the current Great Western Bank building and then transitioned to the space currently occupied by Kruml Law Office. In 2011, Professional Eyecare renovated and relocated to their neighboring building where they are currently located today at 1511 M Street in downtown Ord.
Professional Eyecare offers comprehensive vision and eye health care for all ages as well as 24 hour emergency care. Professional Eyecare’s mission is to stay on the forefront of eye care technology. They have brought in the latest technology to help detect and treat eye health issues including eye infections, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
When asked about the importance of buying locally, Dr. Blair replied, “People have many options for their eye care needs. We try to provide state of the art care so people don’t have to drive to the bigger cities to get the latest technology. We have over 1,000 frames in our dispensary to choose from so people can find the style and look they want. We want to offer the best products and services locally, from people you know and trust.”
