Comprehensive Eye Examinations
The doctors at Elk River Eye Clinic provide eye examinations for patients of all ages.
Yearly eye examinations are essential for your eye health and best vision. We recommend annual eye exams even if you believe your eyes are healthy, because some eye diseases don't cause symptoms. These include conditions such as glaucoma that can cause blindness.
If you have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, you have an increased risk of eye disease and vision loss. Annual eye exams help diagnose problems before they become serious. Eye exams can also help doctors diagnose health problems such as high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes.
The doctors at Elk River Eye Clinic participate in the InfantSEE (R) program. This program offers a complimentary, comprehensive eye examination to children of the age of six to twelve months.

When our patients develop vision conditions that either require or might benefit from surgery, we work with them to get the best surgical specialty care. Elk River Eye Clinic partners with many local and surrounding community surgeons in the eye care field of ophthalmology. Our doctors team up with the surgeons to review your condition and history. It is through this type of doctor to doctor consult that we can determine and provide you with the best alternatives and choices for your surgical care and pre and postoperative care.
