Our History

Ahren’s Valley Eyeworks opened its doors in 1995. At that time, the vision care market was very clinical and, as our owner Richard Ahrens described, "same ole, same ole." Richard's vision for his business was to bring old-fashioned, personalized service back into eye care. When you step into our clinic, it's like visiting a warm, inviting mountain chalet. It's what set us apart in '95 and continues to make us a step above the rest in the city today!
