Our practice is located in Milbank, SD, a wonderful family orientated town, with plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. We have a great school system with a new elementary building under construction for the upcoming school year. Our city is the birthplace of the American Legion Baseball with an amazing new baseball complex in the planning stages. We have a great place to slow down and be a member of a community.
We practice full scope optometry performing comprehensive eye care for all ages. We work hard to take care of our AMD, glaucoma, and diabetic patients. Dry eye management is a passion of ours and we utilize both the LipiFlow and TearCare System in office. We maintain great relationships with area opthalmology specialists and local primary care providers. We routinely utilize OCT with Angiography, retinal photography, and visual fields to monitor posterior segment diseases. Two of our exam lanes were recently upgraded to have digital phoropters.
My staff has around 80 years of collective eye care experience. We are constantly trying to work on ways to improve our patients experience while in the office. We pride ourselves on getting to know our patients, they are never just a number. In my twelve years here I have learned over and over that in a rural setting we are all connected to our patients beyond the exam room and truly rely on each other day to day.
Fun fact: Five of the seven staff in our office are not from the area. We came "passing through" and we stayed! Its a great testimonial to our quality of life here!
