Doctor Eric J. Bohjanen (aka Dr. B) grew up in Da U.P. doing Yooper things, becoming well versed in the outdoor arts. He then wandered down to Ann Arbor, Michigan to become a University of Michigan Wolverine. There, he met Eastern Michigan University Eagle, Donald L. Quada (aka DQ).
Each would venture out into the world to find their own niche and develop unique skill sets. B made his way out to Oregon to procure a Doctor of Optometry distinction, thus transforming into Dr. B. He used his powers for good in clinical settings in Arizona and California before settling down in Colorado to learn new outdoor skills of extreme skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking. During his decade there he honed his craft and built a very impressive clinical resume that will aid every patient he sees. In addition to that, he got hitched to a Minnesotan beauty and she stole him from Colorado for good by convincing him that Lake Superior was where he was from. . . and dog gone it. . . Lake Superior is where he should be.
Meanwhile, DQ moseyed on over to the windy city of Chicago and continued his foray into the world of opticianry while dabbling in digital media and rock trombone. Demand for his skills took him to San Francisco (sometimes called the Duluth of the West) for a spell where he explored the breathtaking natural beauty of Big Sur and the majestic redwoods. Longing for the lakes and seasons of the Midwest, he returned to Chicago to ply his craft and raise a clowder of cats until, tapping into his longing for the Great Outdoors, Dr. B lured him to Duluth with smoked fish, craft beers and promises of grand adventure. He was hooked.
In much the same manner that peanut butter met jelly to form one of the most ubiquitous sandwiches in history, Dr. B and DQ formed Zen Eye Care to anchor their talents in the amazing City of Duluth.
“. . .and when the Lake beckons . . .how will you answer the call?”
Now, Dr. B and DQ answer that every day of their lives.
And Duluth is their home.
