Eye Conditions We Treat


A cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye caused by the natural aging process. Normally, light passes through the clear lens and is focused onto the retina.


Myopia is the medical term for nearsightedness. Nearsighted eyes are good at seeing objects that are up close but have trouble seeing objects that are far away.


Hyperopia is the medical term for far-sightedness. Far-sighted patients are good at seeing objects far away but have difficulty seeing objects close up.


Presbyopia is a vision condition caused by aging of the crystalline lens of the eye, making it difficult to focus on near objects.


The cornea, lens and retina contribute to clear vision at all distances. In astigmatism, vision is blurred due to either an irregularly shaped cornea or lens.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a disease that can blur your central vision when aging causes damage to the macula, the part of the eye that controls sharp, straight ahead vision.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a condition in which a person doesn’t produce quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. This can make your eyes feel uncomfortable and can cause vision problems.


Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that lead to progressive damage of the optic nerve (the nerve fiber that carries information from the eye to the brain), which can lead to vision loss and the possibility of blindness. Optic nerve damage usually occurs in the presence of high eye pressure, but glaucoma can occur with normal or even below-normal eye pressure.


Strabismus is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly.

Diabetic Retinopathy

This is the leading cause of blindness in American adults. It damages the blood vessels in the retina, the light-sensitive nerve tissue in your eye that sends visual images to your brain.

You deserve to see the beauty of the world

We are part of the Northern Minnesota community and have been taking care of patients here since 1979. We are still independently (and locally) owned so that we can treat patients in their best interest, not recommend whatever is best for a corporation’s bottom line.
