Meet Dr. Goertz

Dr. Goertz specializes in the pre- and post-operative management of refractive and cataract surgery patients and corneal disease and glaucoma cases. He also brings extensive refractive co-management experience to Vance Thompson Vision in Omaha.

Dr. Goertz began his optometry career shortly after the excimer laser was approved by the FDA in 1995, and he has been a respected member of the optometric community in Omaha for more than 20 years. Because his career started at the same time as laser surgery, his skill and expertise has grown right along with the industry. To date, he has cared for more than 60,000 LASIK patients.

Dr. Goertz is a member of several optometry organizations and enjoys lecturing on refractive and cataract surgery.
