Our History

The concept of McLean County Eye Center (MCEC) began on April 1, 1980, with a small office of only 800 square feet of space and two full time staff. After four and a half years, the practice grew to the extent that additional space and staff were needed to handle the growing patient influx.

A new office was opened at the corner of College and Veterans Parkway in November of 1984. Staffing was doubled and office size was tripled. The office continued to grow and staffing continued to expand. It was apparent that even more space would be needed to allow for continued growth.

In 1995, the adjoining office space was purchased and the whole 4,000 square feet of combined offices were completely renovated. This resulted in a state-of-the-art facility ready to handle the added staff and patient flow.

Dr. Jeffrey A. Huettemann, OD joined the practice during the summer of 1997. Dr. David K. Landess, OD joined the practice in March of 2000. Dr. Landess and Dr. Huettemann went into partnership in March of 2000 and purchased the practice. In September of 2006, an administrative wing and a staff training center was added to the second floor of the practice increasing the practice size to almost 6,000 square feet. Continued patient growth created the need to add a third doctor. In July of 2011, Dr. Jason A. Dunn, OD was welcomed to the practice.

Always trying to exceed expectation, McLean County Eye Center will continue to go to great lengths to provide the best service possible. Although personal comprehensive care is always emphasized, upgrades in digital diagnostic imaging and macular degeneration services have allowed us to provide cutting-edge medical and vision care. It is this technology coupled with providing over 25 trained and certified staff members that has poised our office at the very leading edge of eye care within our community.
