Your Ophthalmology Specialists
Come to Sanford Ophthalmology for total eye care. Our services go beyond eye exams to diagnose and treat eye conditions. We provide both surgical and non-surgical treatment options depending on your eye disease. Put life back into focus with our ophthalmology services.
Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in providing comprehensive eye care. Optometrists can detect eye conditions or injuries, but refer patients to ophthalmologists for treatment.
We will work with you to battle vision-threatening conditions. Our ophthalmologists are dedicated to stopping and reversing vision reduction. If you need surgery, you can get long-lasting results from our eye surgeons. We also work to increase your comfort during and after surgery. Using advanced technology and surgical techniques, you’ll have a quick recovery and see vision changes in no time.

LASIK eye surgery is a safe procedure that you will recover from quickly. Most patients go back to work within a day or two of the operation. After the surgery, you’ll see results within a few days and your vision will continue to improve over time.
Just as your Sanford Health ophthalmologist worked with you before the surgery, you can expect your surgeon to follow up afterward as well. There will be check-ins a day, a week and a month after surgery to check your vision progress.Call us for a consultation at (605) 328-9200. Learn more about LASIK eye surgery.
