Our Mission

To preserve, restore, and enhance vision through research, teaching, and providing the highest quality medical and surgical care to patients.

Vision Correction for All Ages

The minimum age a person can undergo LASIK surgery, according to the FDA, is 18. Ophthalmologists recommend and often require that patients have a consistent prescription for at least 12 months before considering the surgery to avoid the risk of vision changing after LASIK has already been performed.

By their 30s, people who may have previously been on the fence about LASIK establish a more consistent lifestyle and may become more financially stable. They are ready to take the plunge into a permanent vision correction solution with many years remaining to enjoy the incredible results of this life-changing surgery.

Many people will begin to notice a normal, natural loss in near vision or reading vision, known as presbyopia, by around age 40. Minnesota Eye Consultants is pleased to offer KAMRA® Inlay treatment, freeing patients from reading glasses or contacts. LASIK surgery is also still an option for patients over 40.

By age 50, significantly fewer patients consider having LASIK due to a variety of other potential eye issues that form naturally as we age. However, the 50s are still an ideal age for the KAMRA® Inlay procedure for presbyopia, which should be performed before potential cataracts develop.

For patients over 60 who are experiencing blurry vision, we recommend scheduling a cataract evaluation with one of our ophthalmologists. As we age, the likelihood of developing a cataract increases, and we often find that cataract surgery is the recommended treatment plan. A thorough evaluation with a Minnesota Eye Consultants physician will determine what procedure makes sense for you and your vision goals.

Cataract Surgery

Our practice offers a variety of treatment options for cataracts, including cataract surgery, multifocal intraocular lenses, YAG capsulotomy, and more to patients throughout the Minneapolis area. Cataract removal is considered one of the most popular and highly successful surgical procedures. During the surgery, the clouded lens is removed from the eye and replaced with an intraocular lens implant. If you’re ready to see clearly again, give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have surrounding cataract treatment options.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma causes optic nerve damage, most often from high pressure caused by poor drainage of a fluid (aqueous humor), which supplies nutrients to the cornea and lens. The most common form is “acute angle glaucoma,” which accounts for 90% of cases. While glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness, it is fortunately both highly preventable and treatable. Since early detection is key, it is important to schedule an annual, fully-dilated eye exam with your ophthalmologist in order to catch early warning signs of the disease. Don’t wait - visit one of our Minneapolis area locations and start your glaucoma prevention today.

The staff is very welcoming and kind. We felt very comfortable and well informed. The doctor and staff didn t just talk to myself and my husband but also made sure my son understood everything that he was going to do. He made sure we all felt comfortable and like all our questions were answered. One of the best experiences I ve had with a specialist in a long time.

My visit today was very good. I was taken in to my visit on time. The person who preformed the several eye tests was very good at explaining what the tests were for and handled everything well. Dr Mark Hansen was extremely personable and gave me complete information and answered all my questions. Nancy Wright
