A special note from Maui Jim: Aloha! Are you ready for summer? We are excited to announce that Dakota Eye Care is hosting a trunk show with Maui Jim and YOU are invited!

Maui Jim got its start in Lahaina, Hawaii, and from the beginning, their goal has always been to bring vivid color, clarity and detail while providing protection from glare and harmful rays of the sun. Maui Jim is bringing all the newest styles from Hawaii to West St. Paul, so make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity!
The event will be held at our West St. Paul location where you will meet our expert on Maui Jim, Alissa, who can answer all your questions and find the absolute best frames for you. Dakota Eye Care staff will also be here for your optical needs. 
We look forward to seeing you there, and remember to enter our drawing for one of our special door prizes!

Date: Monday, June 27th 2022
Time: 12:00 – 5:30pm

Dakota Eye Care Associates Celebrates 20 Years!

We would like to start by thanking all of our past and present patients for entrusting us with your vision and healthcare needs. There are many options when choosing an eye care provider and we sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be your provider over the past 20 years. More importantly, we enjoy having you as part of our family.

We’ve grown significantly over the years but still take pride in providing unique care taylored to each individual. Much of the personalized service we provide can be attributed our fantastic staff, many of whom have been here since the beginning. We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. Dakota Eye Care wouldn’t be able to provide the highest quality of care without your expertise.

It has been a pleasure to serve our patients and the surrounding community over the past 20 years. We continue to strive to be at the forefront of eye care and look forward to providing continued care for the next 20 years and beyond!

Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Matthew Hennen! I would recommend this clinic to everyone. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Hennen did an amazing job taking care of myself and 1 year daughter. He was able to keep her distracted and happy while completing the examination. My family will be life long patients!
