BURLINGTON — Eye Physicians & Surgeons is embarking on a project worth at least $1 million to replace the two offices in Burlington with a brand new clinic.

The eye group has three locations: the main Burlington clinic is at 222 Adams Street, and the group shares part of an office building at 308 McHenry Street. The company, which provides medical and surgical eye care as well as routine eye exams. for glasses and contact lenses, also has an Elkhorn desk.

The company’s physician owners are Mark Brower, Matt Dahlgren, Dan Solverson, Nicholas Veith and, from August 12, Nathan Mathews. The group acquired a 0.84 acre property for the new clinic at 671 W. State St., a property previously used only for vehicle storage. It was in the city of Burlington but was annexed to the city on July 2.

There, Eye Physicians & Surgeons are to build a new 7,000 square foot clinic, more than 50 percent larger than the nearly 4,500 square foot clinic on Adams Street. It will benefit from new water and sewer services.

Brower said they plan to use the extra space – in a building designed by local architect Thomas Stelling – to add technology and more room for patients, as well as a larger car park with 32 spaces.

The new clinic will replace the two Burlington locations, but the group will retain its Elkhorn office, Brower said.

Regarding the design of the future wood-frame clinic, he said, “we tried to integrate it into community things.” It has a flat roof, a modern brick design, and lots of glass in the waiting area.

Brower said doctors hope construction of the new clinic can begin in late summer or early fall. They hope to open in the new space late next winter or early spring. He said he didn’t expect the move to disrupt their practice.
