Our Doctors and Staff


Optician: ABO


I came to McLean County Eye Center in  1991 at the behest of Dr. Burggraf, my brother-in-law.  For nine years we worked together until March 2000, when Dr. Huettemann and Dr. Landess purchased the practice. I began in the lab edging lenses and by November 1991, I had received my ABO certification and became an optician. Shortly thereafter I began managing the office and held that position until May 1, 2011, when I semi-retired to two days a week.  My wife, Joyce, and I have been married since August 1968.  We have two sons; one of whom is now my boss.  We are blessed with eight grandchildren, four of whom live in Bloomington; our other son is a pilot for Southwest Airlines.  He lives in Fishers, Indiana and has blessed us with four grandsons.  I have enjoyed immensely working at MCEC.  I appreciate my fellow staff members and the integrity of our doctors.  To work with men who genuinely care for their patients and desire to honor the Lord in everything they do, this is a joy.
