COVID-19 MESSAGE: In an effort to protect the well-being of our patients, staff and doctors, and following the recommendations of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our clinic for routine care until further notice. We will continue to see urgent and emergent patients only. If you have an eye emergency, please call our on-call doctor at 651-571-0717. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and update our website and voicemail as recommendations change. Thank you for your patience.

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and disorders. An ophthalmologist has either a Doctor of Medicine degree or a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree, with specialty training in vision and eye care. In addition to performing eye exams, diagnosing and treating eye disease and prescribing medications and prescription lenses, ophthalmologists also perform eye surgery, including LASIK and cataract surgery.

In the following pages, you will find information about ophthalmology, including: common visual problems; vision disorders; eye diseases; nonsurgical and surgical treatment options; and best practices to protect or improve your eye health.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.
