On Monday, May 14, MeritCare will be opening its doors to a new clinic: MeritCare Eye Center, 1717 University Dr. S., Fargo. Today, Friday, May 11, the media has an opportunity for a sneak preview of the clinic, which will house both optometry and ophthalmology services, an optical shop, a LASIK suite, and an addition of two operating suites.

The operating suites are located right within the eye center. This gives patients the ease and comfort of getting all their eye care services at one location. Previously, patients would have had eye-related surgeries done in a general operating room, at a different MeritCare location across town. "This clinic provides patients with improved access and convenience to meet all of their eye-care needs," said Dr. Thomas Strinden, managing physician partner, MeritCare Eye Center, "we are excited to have this clinic to provide patients with specialized eye care in one convenient location."

Additional information:
  • The clinic is located across from MeritCare South University and is a renovation of 12,000 square feet of space.
  • MeritCare will continue to provide optometry services at MeritCare Southpointe, 2400 32nd Ave. SW, Fargo.
  • MeritCare will no longer offer eye services at the Professional Building.
