Changing Lives
by Creating Vision

WELCOME

At Vance Thompson Vision, we know how important it is to wake up each morning to clear vision. Because improved sight means more than seeing your best. It means being your best. With more than 60,000 procedures and nearly 100 years of combined experience in eyecare and refractive surgery, the team at Vance Thompson Vision is committed to using only the most advanced technology and sets standards used all over the globe.

MY CATARACTS

A cataract is this stiffening, clouding and blurring of our eye’s natural lens. Though painless, cataracts can cause hazy vision, unusual glare, poor night vision or a reduction in color perception. People especially notice difficulty with low light situations like night driving. Cataracts tend to develop slowly, and surgery may not be immediately necessary.

If your ability to read, drive or carry out other normal activities is hindered, cataract surgery will likely be the best solution.

MY LASIK

Laser vision correction involves using a precise computer-controlled laser to gently reshape the cornea, allowing light rays to focus more directly on the retina and ultimately reducing your dependence on corrective lenses. The in-office procedure lasts only a few minutes per eye, and most patients can return to work the next day. Laser vision correction can correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

MY WRINKLES

Many people who enjoy the benefits of vision correction also enjoy knowing their options related to skin and laser therapies. That is why the doctors of Vance Thompson Vision have created Artisan 57. Artisan 57 exists to blend beauty and science using the same high medical standards used in laser vision correction at Vance Thompson Vision.

MY GLAUCOMA

Nearly two and a half million people have Glaucoma. More than half of these people do not even realize they have the disease because there are often no warning symptoms. Glaucoma is known as the “silent-thief” of sight because it silently steals your vision without you even realizing it. If you do not have routine eye exams to check the status of your eye health, glaucoma and other diseases can steal your vision. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S. and the leading cause of preventable blindness.

At Vance Thompson Vision, Glaucoma treatment, surgery, and research are one of the pillars of our specialized care. By reviewing this literature with a family member or loved one you are taking the first steps to understanding Glaucoma.

MY CORNEA

The shape of the cornea is important to help focus light on the retina. A standard shaped cornea, and a healthy clear lens, allows light to focus clearly. If the cornea becomes cloudy or if the cornea becomes irregular in shape, vision can be impaired. Modern technology has made corneal transplantation a successful procedure; allowing patients to receive clear vision through a partially or fully replaced cornea transplant surgery.

If you are interested in discussing cornea problems with our doctors in Sioux Falls, South Dakota please feel free to call Vance Thompson Vision directly. The Vance Thompson Vision doctors are internationally recognized for excellence in cornea transplant surgery right here in South Dakota.

MY INSPIRATION

At Vance Thompson Vision we know what it takes to see and be your best every single day. But, we also know that it’s not always easy, and no one can do it alone. Who is your spark? Who makes you your best? Who gives you vision? How do you see your vision inspiring others?

We are inspired by the stories you share about how you use your vision. We hope that this journey gives you the opportunity to be your best in life and to inspire others to be their best as well.
