Ophthalmology and Optometry Services

Rainy Lake Specialty Clinic hosts an ophthalmology outreach clinic for Sanford Health, making a full range of ophthalmology eyecare services available to our patients of all ages.  Ophthalmology physicians diagnose and treat disorders and diseases of the eye, providing advanced eye care for optimal eye health and vision.

Ophthalmology procedures and treatments range from treating and managing glaucoma to corneal implants and transplants, eye surgery (including cataract, glaucoma, and retinal surgery), as well as pediatric ophthalmology services.

Optometrists provide routine eye exams and prescribe contact lenses and eyeglasses. If eye disease is suspected or discovered, the ophthalmologist is consulted for further evaluation and treatment.

Ophthalmology services are scheduled on a monthly basis and surgeries are performed at Rainy Lake Medical Center.
