Sioux Falls, South Dakota ophthalmologist Alison Tendler is gearing up to open up a vision clinic and med spa.

Tendler, who already operates a medical spa, has worked at Vance Thompson Vision for 13 years, reports Keloland TV. Her new venture, ARTisan Skin and Laser Center, will combine her eye practice and medical spa.

The business is slated to open at retail center The Galleria during summer 2019.

Notes the publication: “Tendler says she has decided to follow her own vision of not only helping patients see better, but see themselves better.”
