Beatiful office, easy location, the latest technology, and CARING consultations. " "I started going to Apple Valley Eye Care in the 90's. I drive from St. Paul to see Dr. Wellik. I have been very pleased with him and all the friendly, professional staff. The technology is up to date and the staff is well trained in using it. My prescription is always filled correctly. Everyone in the office goes out of their way to answer questions to my satisfaction. The office atmosphere is welcoming and friendly.
