OGS - Optometry Giving Sight

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.

Calhoun Square Uptown Minneapolis

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.

Rake in the Savings Trunk Show

Fall Trunk Show Recap: Rake in the Savings

What a great time we had at our Rake in the Savings trunk show! We had guests arrive before 9:00AM so they would have the best selection of frames to chose from. Larry Thomas from Spectrum Optical lab was on hand all day to answer questions on the latest technology in lenses and to take charge of our VisiOffice system, which takes the precise and detailed custom measurements necessary for fitting the latest in digitally surfaced lenses. Kirk, with Europa International Frames, is always a favorite guy to have at our shows. He came with the largest selection ever of Scott Harris, Cinzia and David Benjamin frames. Todd, who brings us our Morel-France eyewear, also had a fantastic selection of Koali and Oga frames. With such high quality and beautiful options available it was very difficult for most to narrow down their choices.
