Dirt work has begun on new optometrist offices for Days
Dirt work has begun on the expanded new offices of Clinton optometrists Dr. Pat and Dr. Randi Day at 517 S. 30th. The clinic construction site is at the corner of 30th and Modelle Avenue and will actually front onto Modelle.
Dr. Pat Day said the new clinic will encompass between 3,700 and 3,800 square feet of space. It will replace a clinic that has about 2,000 square feet.
The veteran local optometrist opened his current clinic 35 years ago on S. 30th Street when there were only the hospital, Dr. Day’s office and Dr. Boone’s dental office in the general vicinity. The offices were surrounded by wheat fields, and Dr. Day smiled and said, “We came in one morning and found cows in the parking lot.” He’s hoping to sell the current offices.
