Quality Eye Care

Arcade Opticians first opened in 1960. The building at the time was called Arcade Medical Building. These days, it’s known as Medical Professional Building.


Arcade Opticians was owned and operated by Dr. Clifford Hendricks . He and his colleagues provided top eye care in the building. In 1992, the other ophthalmologists build and moved into a new facility, but Arcade Opticians stayed in the original location.

Time for Transitions

Nancy started working for Dr. Hendricks in 1964 managing the clinic. In 1985, she started working in the optical care shop part-time. When the other ophthalmologists moved to their new location, Nancy bought the clinic from Dr. Hendricks. She remained owner until 2008.


Karen started working for Dr. Hendricks in the late 1960s as a technician and contact specialist. She took time off to raise her family, but returned to work with Dr. Hendricks and Nancy in the early 1990s.

New Millennium
2008-Present Day

In 2008, Deanine bought the shop and Arcade Opticians became A Perfect Pair. She began her work in the field of optics in 1980. She worked for a national retail chain in Cedar Rapids and in Iowa City. In 1989, she moved to Illinois working for the same large chain. While in Illinois, she also took some time to complete her college education.


When she returned to Iowa, Deanine managed a large optical store in Cedar Rapids. She also helped two local optometrist move to their new practice before purchasing Arcade Opticians. The year 2015 brought a move to the Glass Road location. The rest is history!
