Vance Thompson has some of the most thorough and thoughtful providers in Fargo. I had an eye check up with them and learned more about my lazy eye than any other vision center I’ve visited. They also took my dry eye symptoms seriously and were able to help me relive some pain the same day. I also completed a study with them and it was super easy, informative, and straightforward. When I moved they also sent me a personal gift to the city I was moving. The attention to detail and care goes above and beyond! Could not recommend more!

I can not touch my eyes or let anyone get near them. Vance Thompson made this cataract surgery was so easy for me. From the time you enter either building, you feel like a valued customer. They did a very thorough examination of my eyes and gave me a clear picture of where I was at and my choices to improve my sight. The days of the surgery went quickly and smoothly. I can not say enough about how thoroughly impressed I am with the team of professionals. I would recommend the Fargo office to anyone needing help with their sight.
