Dave and Jane, husband and wife, are the owners of Select Eyecare With over 50 years of combined optical experience, they offer expert eye care, extensive selection of eyewear and personalized customer service.
David began his optical training at Anoka Technical College, graduating with a degree in Optical Technology. After gaining experience in several optical labs David opened his own wholesale optical lab, The-Len’s Co. In 1996 David purchased his first retail eye care store, Select Eyecare located in Monticello, MN. With Jane’s degrees in Vocal Performance and Music Education, Dave assumed and stated “since you are good with music you would be good with numbers”. This is where Jane enters the family business.
With the success of the Monticello store, they soon opened additional locations. Each location continues to provide personalized service that you can’t find at discount giants and major chains, yet still offer highly competitive prices along with quality and fashion.
Dave and Jane met performing in local community theatre productions. This continues to be a passion for both as well as biking and walking their dog Charlie.

Reviews From Our Patients
I’ve been going here for years. I love how the staff are behind the desk. They are so helpful friendly. My daughter has been doing a contact lens class to put them in and the lady is so nice. She really does her job great and likes it. I’m so pleased with the service. And the doctor is very nice has well. She explains everything about the appointment when you are there
Professional place to get eyewear. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Definitely the place to get your eyes taken care of.
Okay , this is the BEST place ever, they actually listen to you, they are honestly trying to help you out. Friendly and professional. Not in a rush. The Dr, is very cool, answers every question doesn’t talk down to ya. Great place ! ❤️ I will be back and I will tell my friends to check it out too.
Very helpful, very professional! Definitely will go back and recommend to my friends. Love my glasses and sunglasses. Great experience!
An outstanding experience all around. Consice friendly doctor and Jane has an excellent variety of frames to choose from. Very helpful and kind, and also a real pro at fitting and adjusting glasses. We are lucky to have such a great place in our own backyard.
Dr. Emerson was fast, efficient and polite. The whole staff was the same way and my experience was great for my first time there.
Our entire family of four have yearly eye exams & purchase all of our glasses & sunglasses for several years now & we highly recommend them!
We enjoy supporting small businesses that offer excellent customer service and great products, so
5 stars from our family goes to Marsh Optical of Anoka for providing this!
Excellent service. Jane was very helpful in picking out frames with me. She also pointed out the benefits of my med plan. The exam went quick and easy.
Both Select Eye Care in Coon Rapids and Anoka have provided me with excellent service and value over the years. Their attention to detail and recommendations are always appreciated. I highly recommend that you seek out either store for your eye care needs. You will be taken care of in a professional manner that is difficult to find in most optical clinics today.
I feel so well taken care of here, I adore Dave and every eye doctor I’ve seen there. They’ve been super fast and helpful getting my glasses and contacts ready for me. The donuts are also pretty convenient 🙂
Great prices, the owner is very smart and friendly. I have been a customer for 5 years and he has always gone out of his way to make sure his customers get the best service. Highly recommend this small business!
Dave is very experienced in his business and takes care of his patients.
The owner is always super helpful and friendly! I have never been disappointed in the service or the eyeglasses/contact lenses that I have received!
