Southwest Health announces the expansion of its Eye Center in Lancaster into a new space at 1509 Ihm Street, Suite 2, a building that is also home to US Cellular of Lancaster. The new eye clinic space is now undergoing renovations with an anticipated opening in December.
“We are very pleased with the response to our providing high quality eye care services in Lancaster, and this new location will allow us to better serve local residents and those from surrounding communities,” says Chief Operations Officer Steve McCarthy. “People from Fennimore and other points north of Lancaster will soon have easier access to high quality eye care than ever before.”

Both locations are home to optometrists Nicole Klein, OD; Thad Wantor, OD, and Jenny Belken, OD as well as highly experienced eye surgeon, ophthalmologist Mary Jo Oyen, OD.
The current Lancaster location at 500 South Madison Street remains open until the new space is complete, and patients may make appointments at any time. Call 608-723-2020 for appointments in Lancaster and 608-342-2020 for appointments in Platteville.
