(July 2, 2014 — Arlington, WA) Cascade Regional Eye Center, Inc., PS, dba The Harman Eye Clinic, located at 903 Medical Center Drive, the premier eye surgery center in the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years, has acquired a new owner. Bruce J. Ballon, MD has sold 50 percent of the practice to Bruce E. Wietharn, MD. The two doctors will alternately share the role of President and CEO annually in addition to their services as ophthalmologists and eye surgeons since 2002 and 2004 respectively.
The purchase of this practice reflects a long-term relationship built over the past decade. Each holds the gold-standard of excellence, confidence, depth and continuity in personal service. Their partner, Natalia V. Bajenova, MD, joined the practice in 2012 and is slated to purchase one-third of the practice in 2022.
Serving patients of the Pacific Northwest since 1984, The Harman Eye Clinic primarily provides advanced customized LASIK surgery as well as Refractive Multifocal Lens and Standard cataract surgery. Patients are customarily referred and co-managed through area eye doctors for surgery; however, patients may seek surgical solutions for their eye challenges through appointments.
