DICKINSON, N.D. - A Dickinson optometrist is celebrating 40 years of practice.
Dr. Alan King at Visionary Eye Care opened his Dickinson practice in 1979.
Previously he was a medic in the army.
He says spending time with optometrists during his service inspired him to be an eye doctor.
King says he has formed long lasting relationships with patients.
"I take care of my patients like I do my own family. I've created an atmosphere in my office from the very beginning that it's family oriented. We treat them like family when they walk in and they walk out the door," says King.
King says he doesn't plan on retiring any time soon.
