Exceptional Vision Correction Treatments and Outstanding Patient Care

At The Eye Clinic of North Dakota, we have been providing state-of-the-art vision correction and high-quality patient care for more than 40 years. We have made a commitment to offer leading-edge technology for all of our eye procedures and we were the first practice in the state to offerLASIK refractive surgery and premium accommodative intraocular lens implants (IOLs) for cataract surgery. Our physicians are expertly trained in the most modern treatments available so patients can experience the clearest vision possible. Because of this, many individuals from Bismarck and throughout North Dakota trust in our skill and expertise for all of their vision correction needs.

Custom LASIK

Custom LASIK is another state-of-the-art procedure offered to treat individuals with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Custom LASIK is similar to conventional LASIK; however, the procedure applies advanced computerized tracking techniques as well as three-dimensional wave scan technology, which records each patient's unique vision characteristics and aberrations for a completely personalized treatment.

Intended for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, IntraLase works just like Custom LASIK with the added advantage of using advanced IntraLase® laser technology to create the corneal flap for a completely bladeless experience for patients. IntraLase is the 100 percent laser-guided approach to LASIK surgery, giving our surgeons superb accuracy and control over the procedure. Read More.

Cataract & Lens Implant Surgery

Cataracts occur when the natural lens in the eye becomes clouded, impairing vision. Cataract and lens implant surgery at our practice is now a highly developed outpatient procedure that does not require needles or sutures. We use some of the most modern lens implants available, which can help minimize the use of corrective eyewear at all distances. Read More.

Treatment for Glaucoma

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in individuals. Patients suffering from glaucoma have a variety of treatment options available to help reduce the pressure within the eye. We can use topical eye drops as well as advanced laser surgery methods such as trabeculoplasty, iridotomy, and cyclophotocoagulation. We also offer conventional surgery for extreme glaucoma cases.
