Art of Optiks


    Dr. Tim Haupert

    Dr. Tim Haupert started his eye care practice, The Art of Optiks, back in 2001 in Wayzata. He has more than 25 years of clinical experience with patient care. During this time, he has worked extensively with eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. In 2014, he was one of six optometrists recognized as an Optometric Business Innovator in the area of “the patient experience” by publications Vision Monday and the Review of Optometric Business.

    When he was looking to expand to a second location in 2016 to Minneapolis, he knew which financial institution he wanted to work with. After working with Stearns Bank on a variety of loans for about a decade, it was an easy decision for him. Stearns came highly recommended to him from other eye care industry vendors.

    He credits his lender, Robin, and others he’s worked with for creating a very straightforward loan process. He feels the systems Stearns has in place makes things easier on a business owner.

    “I would highly recommend Stearns to any of my colleagues in the eye care industry as a leader in providing financing for all of your needs. They’re great!”
