Lentz Eye Care & Associates is moving, expanding and upgrading its west-side office.
"We wanted to be much more visible," administrator Gordon Wiens says.
The current office is in 2,000 square feet at the Northwest Family Physicians building at 3730 N. Ridge Road where it occupies a back corner.
The new office will more than double in size with 4,200 square feet at 3333 N. Ridge Road.
"So we're right on Ridge Road," Wiens says.
The exam rooms will double from two to four and allow Lentz to hire a second optometrist for the office.
Lentz's optical boutique also will be four times as big.
The new west-side office should be ready in early September.
Wiens says it will add early-morning hours and late-evening appointments as well.
"Our goal is to expand our hours there as well to make it more convenient for all of the busy schedules that everyone has."
The main Lentz office is at 13th and Rock Road, and it was completely renovated two years ago.
Wiens says the Newton Lentz office expanded three years ago.
"We're loving all of our new spaces."
