Dr. Howard retired in 1984 and the office moved across the street to its current location, Livery Square on Last Chance Gulch. Drs. Coen and Gray retired in 2019. Having 20 years of combined experience, Dr. Nicole Henriksen and Dr. Matthew Nottingham have practiced at Helena Vision Center since 2010 and 2013 respectively.
