Some 25 years ago, in the heart of the lakes region of Minnesota, several independent optometrists came together around a radical idea. What if, they wondered, by combining our skills, resources and knowledge, we could create an eye care network that would give the residents of smaller communities in Minnesota access to a level of care normally only available in much larger, urban markets?
They didn’t know it then, but in that moment, Azure Vision Care was born.
In the ensuing years, optometrists in Barnesville, Long Prairie, Pelican Rapids, Perham and Wadena joined together to create an integrated network of eye care. Their professional commitment to these communities was matched only by their personal commitment to raising their families and living their lives there, as well.
Today, Azure Vision Care is something unique in the world of Big Healthcare— an independent, locally-based network, that serves some of west central Minnesota’s rural communities by providing access to world-class eye care.
