Enjoy joint ownership of a fully-booked, three-doctor practice that utilizes full scope optometry in Havre, Montana, a livable city of 10,000. Twenty-five minutes away, Beaver Creek Park, the largest county park in the US boasts small mountains for snow skiing and hiking, wooded and stream areas for picnicking, and two reservoirs that offer terrific fishing. Fifteen minutes in another direction puts you at another larger lake that is great for water skiing and walleye fishing and the entire region has bountiful areas for bird, deer, elk and antelope hunting. Havre is also less than two hours away from the amenities of Great Falls, the third largest city in Montana, and is only three hours from Glacier National Park.

The Havre practice will be 42 years old this year and show continued growth each year.  It offers full scope optometry and manages glaucoma and anterior eye diseases, removes and follows foreign bodies, provides diabetics with quality care, and works closely with a visiting ophthalmologist who uses the office for cataract pre-ops and other medical services.  The practice utilizes high tech instruments such as the Optos Daytona, a new Humphrey Visual Field, an Optovue Avanti OCT, a topographer, Reichert electronic phoropters in all exam rooms, two fully-equipped pretesting rooms, certified EHR, and over 900 frames in the optical.  All of this comes with 13 trained staff most of whom have 1 or more certifications.   The senior partner has his practice for sale and currently works 3.5 days a week and 1 Friday a month.  Another partner has his practice for sale and currently works only 2 days a week and 1 Friday a month.  However, he also has a 2 day a week practice in Chinook, twenty-five minutes to the east, that is not part of the Havre Practice.  He would be willing to sell this along with his Havre practice if the buyer desires.

The Havre practice is currently undergoing a remodel that will provide four fully-operational exam rooms as well as individual rooms for special testing instruments. The basement will house a large lounge for staff meetings, four private offices as well as both men’s and women’s restrooms equipped with showers.

Havre is the center of the Hi-Line and the largest city on Highway 2 from Kalispell, west of the divide, to Williston, North Dakota.  It has a small student-friendly four-year college, is the center of medical care and agriculture for the area and is a very important spot on the Burlington Northern Railroad with both a diesel shop and train car shop. This great balance for the economy has allowed the Havre area to thrive.


Enjoy a great place to raise a family, access to year-round adventure and retreat, and continue to grow a wonderful and rewarding full-scope optometric practice.
