Uptown Eye Care Donates to Optometry Giving Sight | Transforming Lives

At Uptown Eye Care our mission statement says, in part, “Our entire team is dedicated to providing you and your family with superior eye care.” Our desire is that everyone has access to superior eye care. Sadly, in many parts of the world, those in need of vision care have no where to go and no one to provide for their needs.

In an effort to help meet the eye care needs of people around the world we have chosen to support Optometry Giving Sight, an organization dedicated to improving the quality-of-life of people who are needlessly blind or vision impaired. Optometry Giving Sight is the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and a pair of glasses.

How did Uptown Eye Care get it’s name? – Minneapolis to Monticello

The real reason I named our practice “Uptown Eye Care” is to remember how distinctly different the Uptown Minneapolis area was to me back then, and how it stood out as being above and beyond the normal city atmosphere. That ambiance is what we are trying to re-create here at Uptown Eye Care. We hope you get a sense of that when you enter our Monticello, MN eye care office.

Patient Letter to Dr Schauer | Uptown Eye Care, Monticello Eye Clinic

Dr Schauer and the doctors at Uptown Eye Care strongly feel that identifying and meeting the needs of their patients is their primary objective. So strongly, in fact, that part of our mission statement is “Our entire team is dedicated to providing you and your family with superior eye care…because your health is our first priority.”

For this reason we are especially happy when our patients let us know that we are meeting this goal. This is a letter written by one of Dr Schauer’s patients. We wanted to share it with you.

Does Your Vision Center Care?

At Uptown Eye Care we do care about what our patients want when they visit us. In fact, we routinely ask our patients how they feel about the care, services and products they receive from us. Then, we make changes to accommodate the desires of our patients. Here are some of the changes we have made in response to the requests of our patients.
