Just finished having cataract and glaucoma surgery and I just wanted to say that I can't imagine having a better experience. Dr. Morton and Dr. Sieps are both fantastic and I would highly recommend them to anyone with vision issues. Also the entire staff at Vance Thompson Vision in South Sioux City was exceptional. Again thanks so very much!

Very pleased. When Dr Morton is talking about his plan he looks directly at you and you have his entire attention. Entire team from Spenser Morton’s office to the Riverview Surgical Center professional and treated me individually. I was surprised how fast my vision resolved post cataract surgery. Adrian and Nancy kept me updated with everything which is so helpful. Thank you

My son’s specialist in Iowa City referred him to Dr. Morton as a local resource for follow up after eye surgery. Dr. Morton was eager to step in and provide care. We had an emergency situation a few weeks later that Dr. Morton went above and beyond to provide the highest level of care we could have imagined. We are so grateful for access to a doctor of his caliber locally! Not only is he a brilliant and accomplished doctor, he’s also incredibly kind and personable.

Dr. Morton is a very kind and caring doctor who went over the top to take care of our son's eye issues. He is very professional and yet makes you feel calm when there are serious issues going on. I wish there were more rating stars to click because I would click all of them and Dr. Morton would deserve them all!!

Vance Thompson Vision was the only practice I even considered for cataract surgery based on their stellar reputation. Dr. Morton and his staff were so professional, friendly, kind, and trusted. They were totally focused on me, my comfort, and good outcomes. My surgery went extremely well just as I knew it would. You won't regret using this outstanding practice.
