At The Eye Clinic of North Dakota, our ophthalmologists and staff strive to make the vision correction treatment process for your eye condition not only safe and successful, but also as convenient and stress-free as possible. Whether you are interested in conventional LASIK, Custom LASIK, or IntraLASIK or are in need of cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, vision restoration for aging eyes, or other treatments, we provide high-quality patient attention before, during, and after your appointment. This is especially true when it comes to scheduling your office visit and helping you find the most appropriate financing option for your needs. We are committed to helping patients receive outstanding vision care.

Scheduling an Office Appointment

All vision correction appointments at our practice are scheduled through our main clinic office at (701) 255-4673, or toll-free 1 (800) 472-2620. Our friendly and knowledgeable scheduling staff can help you schedule an appropriate time to meet with one of our ophthalmologists and answer any questions or concerns you may have. They will need to know the nature of your medical eye problem, as well as other information such as your telephone number, address, social security number, and insurance information. If you were referred to us by another doctor or medical professional, you will be asked to provide us with his or her information at the time you schedule your appointment.

At The Eye Clinic of North Dakota, we know your time is important. It is our sincere intention to make sure that every patient is seen at the time designated, and we always try our best to keep wait times to a minimum. Please contact our practice today to experience clearer vision and outstanding patient care.
