The History of Elegant Optics
After Graduating from Illinois College of optometry in 1966, Dr. Duane Polzien began practicing optometry at the Lincoln Vision Clinic. In 1979, he joined the medical staff at Nebraska's first staff model HMO (then known as Health Central and later as Health America and Mutual of Omaha Health Plan). In March of 1996, Mutual of Omaha Health Plans of Lincoln shut down their optometry department where Dr. Polzien had worked for 17 years. Within a week, he and his wife began planning and after four months of intense efforts we were able to open Elegant Optics' doors in July of 1996.
Dr Polzien practiced as a solo optometrist for 8 years and continued to grow the practice over that time. In 2004, Dr. Brian Adam joined Dr. Polzien to meet the needs of this growing patient base. As a result, our staff also continued to grow. Our present support staff consists of four individuals who oversee the day-to-day operation of the office.
Dr. Adam purchased Elegant Optics from Dr. Polzien January 1st 2010. Dr.Polzien retired February of 2016.
At Elegant Optics, we provide a full scope of optometry services including comprehensive eye health exams and treatment for various eye diseases, plus a full range of vision services including contact lenses, pre- and post-LASIK surgery care, glaucoma and cataract testing, low vision care, and emergency and urgent eye care.
Thanks to our many remarkable patients, the practice has been growing steadily through word of mouth and personal recommendation since it was established in 1996. We welcome the opportunity to help you and your family with all your eye care needs.
