I had no qualms about Dr. Baartman doing my cataract surgery after my eye doctor recommended him highly. Dr. Baartman called me prior to the surgery to explain the procedure, calm my nerves, and answer questions that I might have. From the receptionist, to the vision examiner, to the techs, nurses, and Dr. Baartman, I was treated with dignity and respect. I felt that I was truly pampered.
Excellent! Why would anyone put off cataract surgery when Dr Baartman and his crew make is so pleasant?! Just trust them! Don’t worry! They are the best!
Seriously the best ever! Not often do you find a doctor that is extremely knowledgeable and down to earth. Dr Baartman explains things so well and so do his staff! Everyone is super friendly and it is just an all around great atmosphere. I am so lucky to have found this place and to have had my surgery completed by Dr Baartman.
I was really afraid to have cataract surgery but entering this office took all the fear away. Anyone needing vision care should see Dr Baartman, the kindest most reassuring person you will ever meet. The staff is exceptional.
They are wonderful great staff will definitely recommend and go back!!
I just had cataract surgery. It was AMAZING!!! All the staff was AMAZING and so personable!
My son had corneal crosslinking done with Dr Baartman. Every staff member in the facility made us all feel very comfortable and well cared for.
Love these people!
Dr. Baartman, Sarah & all of his staff are such a joy to be around!:grin:
I just had Cataract Surgery done this week. I was scared to have this procedure done. Everyone in this office, the staff, the nurses, the Doctors are all very professional, very friendly it was a pleasure to have my procedure done at Vance Thompson Vision and I would recommend them to everyone.:grin:
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these folks - they're professional and TERRIFIC with which to work! My visit and experience with staff and doctors was extraordinary. The staff was most personable, friendly and made the entire visit relaxed! I met with Dr. John Goetz who explained the entire procedure; he was most knowledgeable and helpful - made the entire experience less stressful. Dr. Brandon Braatman performed the laser surgery; Dr. Braatman was professional, knowledgeable, most personable. Dr. Braatman clearly explained the entire procedure and provided excellent comments during and after! Both Dr. Goertz and Dr. Braatman made the entire experience most valuable!
Everything was explained very well before the surgery and everything was taken care of very well after surgery
Not only was the entire staff professional and extremely kind, but I also have experienced tremendous success thus far with my operation. Every question or concern I have had from the beginning has been respected and handled effectively and I could not think of a better place to have had my LASIK operation. I am seeing as well or better now after my procedure than I ever did with glasses and I owe all of that to Dr. Baartman and the rest of the team at Vance Thompson Vision in Omaha!!
VTV is excellent from your first appointment to your surgery after care. Everyone from reception to Doctors, nurses and staff all treat you like a friend. I’m so glad my eye doctor referred me to them!
Vance Thompson is great! Every single person I encountered treated me like I mattered. I would highly recommend them.
My experience with them was so amazing they are so nice, sweet and friendly people. Thanks for everything
The visit to your Eye Clinic was great! Your entire Staff was very friendly and explain what the next step was in the Eye Surgery as the Surgery progressed.
. The CUSTOMER SERVICE was OUTSTANDING!

I wish I could give the Omaha Vance Thompson Vision Center 10 STARS instead of just 5! I live in central Nebraska and was referred to Dr. Baartman by my optometrist. He thought I would be a good candidate for Corneal Crosslinking due to the progression of my Keratoconus. From the initial consultation to the actual procedures my experience was OUTSTANDING! The staff is so personable and helpful. The moment you walk through the doors, you immediately feel at ease and pampered. I would like to specifically give a shout out and big high five to my Optical tech, Meg. With the procedure being approx 2 hours long, we spent the most time together. She has a gift! A gift for putting the patient at ease, making you feel completely taken care of and you immediately trust her and know you are in good hands. You can teach techniques and you can learn procedures - but what she adds to Vance Thompson cannot be taught - it's just who she is. What an incredible asset she is to the team! I also had another delightful tech (not sure if that is her title) named Megan. She and I bonded instantly and chatted as if we had known each other for years. LOL. If we were not in a pandemic I would have hugged them both on my return for my second procedure - that's how incredible there were to me! If you are considering any of the services that Vance Thompson Vision Center offers, DO NOT HESITATE to give them a call. I promise you will be so happy you did!
Great care and all questions answered.
Vance Thompson had a team of people who worked hard to give good care to the patient. The office was pleasant and clean. The staff checked and rechecked about details thoroughly. The surgery was fast and painless.
I was extremely impressed with Vance Thompson Vision. The staff and the doctors were very helpful and very supportive. I went in for cataract surgery and came out with 20-20 vision. I had been wearing glasses since I was 16. Now I only wear them to read.I recommend Vance Thompson Vision to anyone with vision problems.
Very efficient, caring and professional. Dr. Baartman and everyone else was super nice. I would highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision.
I knew that my vision had diminished as I got older and as a diabetic my retina consultant told me several years ago I had cataracts forming and that One day they would need to be addressed and he told me he would advise me when the time had come
My retina cancel referred me to Vance Thompson and they did a thorough evaluation and then schedule my surgery and explore and all of my options moving forward
I was a little apprehensive at first when I went in for the cataract removal on my first eye. The next day my vision was once again restored and the clarity and definition was like I was a young man again
I don’t know why I waited this long to get this done I still wear readers for up close vision but it’s been an amazing transformation!!!
I highly recommend this group if you are considering cataract surgery
I am giving this clinic the highest possible marks in every aspect. Dr Baartman performed my surgery. AWESOME. The entire staff is to be commended on patients care, professional manners,organizational skills and caring ways.I am recommending everyone I know about Vance Thompson VISION.
I had DMEK triples in both eyes in October 2020 2 weeks apart. I now see the beautiful stars at night, the joy of children playing, and the love in my family’s faces! A special thank you to all the amazing doctors and the outstanding staff. I am forever grateful to my gracious donor and their family. :red_heart:️
I had an excellent experience. Everyone was super nice and helpful. I would recommend anyone that needs eye surgery to go to Vance Thompson Visual.
Very kind and explained everything to detail
Exceptional care from a very friendly and efficient staff. Very happy with everyone. I strongly recommend for all eye surgery needs.
Just fantastic, all staff where so kind and professional. They really made me feel at ease. So very happy.
I would like to thank the Drs n the staff for the great care I got ... And God bless Dr Barrtman for giving back my eye sight .. I see things I haven’t seen in years.. I feel so blessed.. They are just wonderful there and God Bless them all .. You are AWESOME
Vance Thompson Vision did a great job. Just have one quibble. Thet did not explain the chaices about eyedops after surgery very well. For $85 you could get 1 bottle with the 3 prescriptions all mixed together, or get 3 separate prescriptions. That meant 3 times thw effort to apply drops if you got the 3 prescriptions. But the kicker, which was a real financial kick in the wallet, was that one of the drops cost $385 at Walgreens with just enough to do 1 eye for a month. Ouch. And completely avoidable.
Great experience! From booking my Lasik preliminary appointment to my re-check after PRK surgery my experience with the staff at Vance Thompson has been wonderful. Dr. Goertz, Dr Baartman, the eye techs, office staff, and surgical support staff provided me with a great experience even in light of COVID. Dr. Baartman and Dr. Goertz both have an amazing way of interacting with their patients given they wear masks just as the patients do, and maintain as much social distancing as possible. I still could see the "smiles" on everyone's faces. If you are on the fence about surgery... don't wait, get that preliminary appointment scheduled.
I had cataract surgery on both eyes at VanceThompson Omaha, on two consecutive days. They were extremely professional, courteous and very thorough in their Covid-19 screening to make certain their patients were safe and comfortable. Dr. Bartman was outstanding. The correction to my vision was 20/15 in both eyes and colors looked like they hadn’t looked in years. I would not hesitate to recommend this office to anyone in need of corrective surgery.
When I walked in I was greeted immediately. All of the staff was friendly, and answered any questions I had. I had LASIK performed, and it was done quickly, and as comfortable as possible. I got a follow up call a few hours after my procedure to make sure I was doing okay, and again to see if I had any questions. It was a good experience.
Can’t say enough wonderful things about Vance Thompson Vision in Omaha and the staff! This is me pre and post LASIK today! I’ve contemplated doing this for years! After 27 years in glasses and my complete and absolute trust in Dr. Brandon Baartman and Dr. Goertz, I bit the bullet and made the decision to do it! I couldn’t be happier! I feel and see great already and it’s only been 3 hours! Check them out at Vance Thompson Vision in Omaha! Top notch surgeon and staff!
The customer service is extraordinary! Every staff member is extremely friendly and helpful from the time I arrived to the time I left. Everyone answered my questions and informed me of what was going on including Dr. Baartman. He’s an excellent surgeon with a excellent bed and chair side manner!
I am very pleased with care that I recieved from Dr. Baartman at Vance Thompson Vision. The staff is very efficient and caring and surgery was a breeze. Dr Baartman is a super friendly and gregarious on top of being a great eye surgeon. I would strongly recommend this facility to my friends and family. I rate them as an 11 out of 10!
I would recommend this place to everyone. I was so impressed with the staff that took care of in the office and surgery. Also asking if i needed anything. And Dr Baatman was outstanding. Even with my follow up. And even the manager of the office was great also.Great place.
Thank you all for the wonderful care.
Absolutely the best care I have ever experienced!!
Having PRK done was a life changing experience for me and I am so happy about my results and seeing clearly without corrective lenses anymore! Dr. Baartman and the entire staff at Vance Thompson Vision are incredible. I highly recommend them!
Everyone here is so friendly and helpful! I got PRK done to my eyes, and they talked me through everything, explained everything they were going to do at the time of surgery, and really helped me feel less anxious about the procedure. Thanks everyone!
My 13 year old son was diagnosed with bilateral keratoconus and needed crosslinking done in both eyes. We came to Vance Thompson after being diagnosed by another provider and they picked up his case and immediately began advocating for us. Insurance denied the procedure multiple times and they fought right alongside us to get the procedure approved. We had multiple setbacks in getting the procedure done and they went above and beyond to advocate, support and encourage us. The professionalism and compassion that was shown to use was outstanding. Words cannot express how thankful we are for this team and the services they provide.
I have had an amazing experience with Vance Thompson Vision Center. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Dr Baartman, and the staff, are phenomenal. They are the most caring people, from top to bottom. They were very thorough walking me through the process and explaining everything step by step. They are great with all the follow-up, as well. I cannot say enough great things about this group. I feel so fortunate to have been referred to them.
Great people that care about what they are doing. Recommend to anyone thinking of laser eye surgery
The entire staff there are friendly and knowledgeable with every question you would have for them. They know what they’re doing and I’m happy I went to them.
VTV Omaha made my experience beyond exceptional. Everyone was extremely polite and comforting during a nerve-racking and vulnerable time. I would recommend Dr. Baartman and all of the staff that worked with me to anyone who is considering LASIK!
Everyone at Vance Thompson Vision was amazing!! They are there to help with any concern, worry or question that you have. They definitely make you feel like a friend not a patient! Dr. Barrtman did my cataract surgery & told me he would call the night of both surgeries to see how I was doing AND he did!! I would highly recommend them to everyone I know.
Our vision is a very precious and important sense. When realizing my cataracts had developed and needed to be removed, I was referred to Dr Brandon Baartman at Vance-Thompson Vision. He was highly recommended by my optometrist whom I deeply trust. In contacting his office, I found he was in the process of becoming a provider with my insurance. Kevin diligently followed through with that process and notified me as soon as it was completed. My consultation appointment with Dr. Baartman was amazing. Stephanie was so pleasant and professional. Dr Baartman made me feel completely at ease with the entire procedure. His explanation of the procedures was detailed and his analogies helped me understand each step. Janet helped me through the payment process smoothly. It was a lot of information to absorb yet they offered to answer any questions at any time. Yes, I did call a couple times to confirm I was remembering correctly and they were as nice as could be. Because of their sincere caring, I was completely at peace both times when I went in for surgery. Sue, my surgical nurse, cared for me with a beautiful balance of comfort and professionalism. Dr. Baartman called me each evening after surgery to make sure I was all right in addition to the morning after appointments. I am amazed and so thankful for this team and the indescribable improvement of my eyesight. I will be meeting with Dr. Baartman again for another follow-up exam in October. It has been a very peaceful and successful surgery. I HIGHLY recommend this team.
I had a fantastic experience with Thompson vision clinic in Omaha Nebraska I had my cataracts done everyone was super nice from the staff to the nurses and Dr. Bartman Who is awesome and great personality and great skills thank you again
I had a fantastic experience with the Vance Thompson Vision Clinic in Omaha NE!! I had Cataract & DMEK Corneal replacement surgery-June 2019. My Doc was Brandon Baartman who is awesome- great personality, confidence and skill!! I really can’t say enough about his work and all the staff that helped me get through this procedure. They are professional & caring folks & made a stressful time for me the best it could be. Thanks to Stephanie, Joslynne, Rachael(?) all the nurses & staff and Terri- the friendly face at the front desk and especially Dr Baartman! You all do a wonderful job! So glad that you do what you do- saving or improving a person’s eyesight is a miraculous job. So now I’m signed up to do the other eye in Sept. I feel I could not be in better hands!! Thanks again!!
From my very first visit, Dr. Baartman and the staff at Vance Thompson Vision-Omaha have been amazing. They made sure I was well informed of the process and all my options for cataract surgery. The surgeries went smoothly and I was in and out in only a few hours each time. Now my vision is better than it has ever been. The friendly and professional staff at both Vance Thompson and the surgery center have always made me feel welcome and well cared for and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
Amazing results from eye surgery at Vance Thompson Vision. Thanks to Dr. Bartman I can now see very clearly without bifocals. Colors are much more vivid. I would recommend them to anyone.
From the sweet woman, Terri, who greeted me when I arrived, and every person I met afterward, included Stephenie, Magean and Doctor Baartman, and anyone who’s name I missed, I knew I had been guided to the right place. Everyone was wonderful. Each individual I saw knew their job and they were professional and polite but most of all they were welcoming. I felt like I had been introduced and embraced into an awesome family!! What a complete joy this journey has been!
And Dr Baartman is not only a welcoming doctor, he absolutely has to be one of the best in his field. He explains everything and checks to make sure you understand and are comfortable with each step.
I have been so amazed at the outcome, following the surgery. I really can’t even see out of my old glasses. I only need a little help with reading! I have worn glasses from the time I woke up until I was ready to go to sleep for so long I have lost count of the time. But now I just slip a pair on when I am ready to read and I don’t need them for anything else. It is wonderful!! My many thanks to these wonderful people and especially Dr Baartman, this has been an amazing journey!!
The staff are great and Dr. Bartman really knows his stuff. I have a complicated eye condition and he has helped me to see clearly again! I highly recommend Dr. Bartman and his staff.
Good place, but knows how to make $$..
An office of professional and caring people. My eye surgery there was excellent. Follow up is 2nd to none. Before and after care instructions were clear and concise. They answer any questions you may have.
Vance and Thompson is a amazing place. Very professional, from the time you walk in the door until you walk out after your surgery. The most friendly staff you will ever meet. I would highly recommend them. I’m Very Satisfied with my lens replacement I had done.
I had cataracts removed from both eyes on two consecutive days. My results with the lenses I chose were as promised. The only regret I have is I couldn't afford the best they had to offer to correct both near and far vision. Adjusting to reading glasses is a challenge. But my distance vision is absolutely wonderful. That is what they promised. And that is what they delivered.
Beyond excellent experience, I had taken my dad there and he has dementia the staff was caring, professional understanding 100 the experience was beyond my expectations I would recommend this place in a heartbeat to anyone needing eye treatment all I can say is thank you again for the perfect service
I was treated like a person rather than hearded through. Everyone was very kind and attentive. The doctor took time to speak with me before each eye surgery and was very understanding about my fears. He also called me each day after the surgery to ask how I was doing and if I had any questions. I would definitely recommend Vance Thompson for cataract surgery.
They were very caring and very professional keep me informed every step of the way
It was a great experience. They were friendly and helpful the whole time and it didn’t take long at all!
They were super all the way around
Great service and follow up!
The business was very well managed and extremely clean and conscious of patient safety. The staff and physicians were very helpful in answering questions and getting me ready for my cataract procedure. Parking is easy and accessible and the location is easy to find.
Having cataract surgery at Vance Thompson was very efficient and painless for myself. I would encourage anyone thinking about cataract surgery to go to Vance Thompson.
Staff and quality at Vance Thompson is excellent. The service that Dr. Baartman and his team have provided is the best. If you have a need, I highly recommend them!
Everyone knew their job and performed with perfection
The whole process was just awesome from the evaluation to the actual surgery everyone was so pleasant and thoughtful explaining everything we are completely sold on the whole team Dr Bartman Dr Goertz and all the nurses and Techs just a complete great team
I felt like I was in good hands from the minute I walked in! Everyone answered my questions knowledgeably and thoroughly. Never did anyone seem hurried or impatient. I felt grateful that I chose Vance Thompson Vision to have my cataracts removed! My vision is great, only using readers when needed, rather than glasses 24/7 Thank you!
Excellent eye care. Wonderful staff! Highly recommend. Trust Vance Thompson Vision with your eyes!
My experience at Vance Thompson Vision was excellent. Everyone was very attentive answered all my questions, explained everything before surgery. Have had no problems and will soon get reading glasses. Dr. Baartman called me personally after surgery which showed his concern for his patients. This is the greatest place ever for having cataracts surgery. You will be greeted with friendly staff when you enter. Thank you everyone.
I am not easily impressed. Having said that, I was very well impressed this time. The care before any procedure, the concern by Dr Barton to provide all options available. The terrific friendly nurses, the cleanliness could not have been improved on in any way. However I will comment that the sunglasses given for comfort and protection after surgery are way UGLY :smirking_face:.
I could not have asked for a better experience for my LASIK procedure! Dr. Baartman, Dr. Goertz, and their entire team were fantastic! Everyone was friendly, efficient, and very professional. I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive to go through with LASIK and had been thinking about getting it done for years. Every question and any apprehension was quickly eliminated after my consultation, and I am now officially in the “I should have done this years ago” club. The surgery itself went incredibly smoothly, and Dr. Baartman and his surgical team were absolutely amazing! They made me feel so comfortable, and Dr. Baartman did a great job walking me through every step. Thank you all for making this experience a good one! I’m so very grateful for you all!!
I received excellent care!! Would highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision. Thank you to Dr. Baartman and staff for being so kind and caring!!!!
The caring staff and attention to detail were top notch! Would recommend Vance Thompson to anyone who needs eye surgery!
I recently had cataract surgery on my 72 year old eyes. I see better now and am more confident of aging now with the vision care provided by Drs. Baartman and Goertz.
My entire experience has been wonderful! From Jodi at the front desk who always greets you with a smile to Sarah H and Dr Goertz who I have seen each visit , to those in the surgery center…
Everyone has been friendly, helpful and their enthusiasm is contagious. You have celebrated my victories and have cheered me on.
I’d recommend your clinic without hesitation.
I’m thankful for the personal care.
Dr Bartman and Dr Goertz as well as all the team were fabulous to work with. They were all very detailed, kept me informed throughout the process and made the cataract surgery very easy.
I would without a doubt recommend Lance Thompson for eye care needs. Dr.Brandon is top of the line and is surrounded with the perfect staff who really care. My eye Dr in Fremont, who I've known since he was young,said these are the folks I'd send my dad to and he was spot on.
You folks did a great job for me.
VTV is amazing! The staff is super professional and friendly. You feel so taken care of from the moment you walk in the door. Look no further for any surgical ophthalmology need.
From the very first phone call to the completion of my CATARACT surgery, I was treated with kid gloves! I especially loved my singing surgeon! I'm so glad I chose Vance Thompson Vision.
Very kind, professional and capable staff. Procedure went off without a hitch with great results. I have had glasses since 2nd grade and it is awesome to be able to see again without glasses or contacts. The staff and Dr Baartman are pros at this and walked me through the whole process from Pre Op/Post Op texts and videos to the Operating room where he gave step by step guidance and what to expect during the procedure to help me feel calm and validated in what I was feeling/experiencing was normal. This lessened my anxiety. They were right on with time frames for recovery expectations of eye irritation, to halos, to completely clear. I wish I had done this sooner. Thanks again Vance Thompson Vision.
Amazing staff and Dr’s. Great experience having cataract surgery with iStents.
You guys are great. Well done, thank you
I appreciated the organization and professionalism! Everyone was knowledgeable and positive. I would definitely recommend Vance Thompson Vision services!
I had a wonderful experience working with Vance Thompson in Omaha. The staff was kind and incredibly helpful from the time of booking through post surgery care. Dr. Brandon Baartman was very encouraging during the surgical procedure, and followed up with me the evening of my surgery. I am so happy with the results of my Lasik surgery. Thanks to all at Vance Thompson Vision!
I found this Vance Thompson Clinic to be One of the most professional medical offices I have ever been in. From the receptionist at the front desk, to all the nurses who helped during the testing for the surgery, but not to mention the most wonderful Doctor who handled my surgery in such a professional manner.
I have been recommending this office to many of my friends and family. I know I rated him five stars, but if I could I would’ve rated them 10 stars!!!!
I had a great experience. The staff was phenomenal. They have to love the work environment to be so enjoyable. The whole experience is very well managed.
I am so happy and blessed to have had by cataracts taken care of here. Dr. Baartman and all the staff are the very best. They are caring and knowledgeable and answer any and all questions that I might have had. My vision is the best it’s ever been. I no longer wear glasses — the first time in 62 years! Can’t say enough good about the clinic and staff. I will be recommending them to others for eye care! :red_heart:️
All went very well. Excellent care and outcome. All staff was friendly, professional and skilled. Thank you Dr Baartman for excellent experience. I have recommended Vance Thompson Vision to my friends. THANK YOU!!
I felt like all the staff at Vance Vision were very professional. I felt comfortable through the process. And now after 57 years I do not need gasses or contacts! A big thank you to all he staff. Dr. Baartman was great!
Highly recommend Vance Vision for your procedure.
Very good experience people have great personalities and would give a rating of 12 to 14 stars If I could
Staff are knowledgeable and friendly and I couldn’t be happier with my results!
Vance Thompson vision, was amazing!! From the front desk to the nurses they were all very helpful and kind! Dr. Brandon Baartman was A delight. He was very Informative of what he was doing, and made sure I was very comfortable! I would recommend Vance Thompson Vision highly, giving them the highest score!!!
Such a great place. Everyone so caring and professional. Cataract surgery quick and simple.
Everyone I dealt with couldn't have been any nicer. They were Greaaat!
The staff and physicians at Vance Thompson are the best at what they do. I felt confident and well cared for receiving my surgery at their office. Dr Baartman is an expert at what he does and makes sure you understand the process.
When I came into them I could not see at all to drive at night - now I see like a cat! It took a couple of surgeries to correct my vision and several months of healing, but it was well worth it. No glasses - it's wonderful. Thank you Dr. Baartman. :smiling_face_with_closed_eyes:
I’m a firm believer that the best form of gratitude for a company is a testimonial and a referral. Here’s my story:
Yesterday my life changed when I got LASIK surgery on my eyes.
About 3 months ago, my eyes started to reject contact lenses, and my vision was so poor that, at times, glasses were more problematic than helpful. After many attempts of different contact lenses, the only ones that remotely worked for me were extremely expensive, and yet still caused severe pain & irritation.
Hence, I started down the path if LASIK was an option for me. I got the appointment scheduled and waited patiently for the date to arrive.
Then life happened… my husband had an unfortunate fall from a ladder, and his brain cancer status changed when a clot was discovered, and was moving towards taking a break from work and going on disability.
Conversations through my head: Is now the best time to have LASIK? Should I postpone? Is spending the money now really smart, given Tyler will be going on disability?
Ultimately, the decision was to move forward as it is for the health of my eyes. I submitted payment for the procedure last week.
I arrived at Vance Thompson this an array of emotions: excitement, anxiety, and a little bit of fear. I was welcomed with a fantastic team that immediately asked how my husband was doing (knowing he has brain cancer) and to see updated pictures of our 15 month old daughter. I met with Dr. Baartman and he said “I ask everyone - So, why are you getting LASIK now?”
“My husband has brain cancer & we have a 15 month old. My eyes have been rejecting contacts and with how chaotic our life can be at times, glasses can cause more problems than not”
We go through the procedure. He even lets me pick out the music… Avicii for the win! Immediately following, I can see signs on the doors. As someone who has been dealing with contacts or glasses for over 25 years… I’m elated!
He checks my eyes - they look great! And then he drops this on me (total paraphrasing as I was in such shock): “I can tell this procedure meant a lot to you, and that it takes a lot of resources to have LASIK, and I also think there’s better things you and your family can do with those resources. We are refunding the money for your LASIK surgery so you can use it for your family.”
He had no idea what the past two weeks have been for our family - that my husband has gone on disability - that we have to purchase various medical equipment not covered by insurance. He has no idea what this does for our family - the stress it elevates.
I cried. And as I went home to sit in a dark room for 5 hours putting drops in my eyes, I kept thinking of this kind act they’ve given us. When my husband or daughter need me in the middle of the night and I don’t have to fumble for my glasses, I’ll be reminded of having my vision, but more importantly that there are amazing individuals, teams and companies out there that just want to do good in the world.
They’ve changed my life. They’ve given me hope. I’m beyond grateful.
Take away the fact I can see better now than I ever could with contacts or glasses - I would recommend them solely because they’re an amazing group of individuals. They looked at me as a person, and what having LASIK truly would do for me and my family. Thank you just isn’t ever enough so the best I can do… go to them. They’re there for you.
It was clean and fast check in.
The work they did removing my cataracts was life changing. Professionally done and the results were amazing. I no longer need glasses.. need I say more?
Every aspect was amazing!
My experience was genuinely a very good experience, the people were awesome The Dr, was the best and the organization makes it all worth it! So glad I went there !
Very professional and friendly staff as well as Dr. Baartman. Always positive attitude and I was very confident during entire procedure. Plus I see as well as I was told.
Excellent experience, wonderful staff. Results were professionally described at one month check up “as close to perfect as possible, text book worthy, 20-15 vision, fighter pilot rated”. Doesn’t get any better than that.
Everyone is so nice! Dr. Bartman, the surgeon who did my cataract & lens implant, is great. Dr. Goertz, who did my initial consultation, is also super. And the nurses and staff are so friendly. I would highly recommend them!
After struggling with my vision for several years I was referred to Vance vision. Turns out I needed cataract surgery in my early 50s. I was so thankful to find a solution for my deteriorating vision and the staff at Vance is beyond supportive. They made the process easy, comfortable, and helped answer all my questions. I heard one patient say that she had put off having her procedure for a couple years, and I thought to myself I’m so glad I didn’t do that. They truly gave me my active life back. I feel like I can do all of the activities that I love doing including motorcycling and golfing where my deteriorating vision had really started to affect my ability to enjoy those hobbies. So don’t hesitate, call today and take care of your eyesight.
Fantastic ,everyone are so friendly and helpful also great out come with my eye surgery am so thrilled with my eyesight !
So friendly. So professional. Calmed my nerves. Great results! I felt I was in great hands from the very beginning until the end. No cataracts and the best vision I've had in decades! No contacts or glasses!
1st class operation from the moment I walked in the door . The 1st surgery went very well although I had unfortunately drank a little fluids prior to the procedure and was unable to have any relaxing agent but the topical drops worked fine. the 2nd procedure the following day went equally well with just topical anesthesia. Follow up was uneventful and my vision in My worst eye is 2020 the other eye which was not quite as bad as 2025 but correctable both eyes to 2015. I can't Believe how much clearer everything is and how good the color is. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. I am a retired physician and I recognize a well run medical operation when I see it
Everyone was very nice and professional. They answered all of my questions and the doctor was excellent. Very happy and satisfied with my results.
All staff members I met are excellent. I highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision.
I had a consultation for a chalazion that was on my eyelid for 6 months and they were able to get me in in a timely manner and scheduled me for the procedure that same day! Both Dr. Goertz and Dr Baartman were phenomenal! Everyone in the office were super nice, I would highly recommend them!
The staff and doctor have been excellent. They make the experience very short and memorable.
Wonderful Dr.’s surgeons, Nurses, team that puts on an awesome company picnic, scary outdoor movie, trunk or treat and Loli pops balloons for the team…. You know they care about their team and patients
The staff was amazing, and also caring! I was scared and emotional and they were so understanding! I would give a hundred stars if I was able! Thank you for being so caring and understand!
Vance Thompson Vision is a wonderful place! From the time I entered the doors everyone made me feel very comfortable and at ease! The ladies at the check in desk, the nurses and all the doctors were absolutely the best! They took time with me and answered any questions and concerns that I had. I highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision!!
The team made me very comfortable. My “pickup person” was looking forward to the coffee bar on my second surgery! Dr. Baartman’s pre and post surgery videos helped prepare me for the procedures I was going to undertake. I highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision for advanced eye care!
Wow! I love Vance Thompson Vision and am so grateful that my optometrist recommended Dr. Brandon Baartman at the Omaha office!
I just had cataract surgery and after only a day following the second eye surgery, my long distance vision is 20/20 again without the increasing haze, blurriness, color blindness and night glare etc.
Dr. Goertz provided the optometric recommendation for cataract surgery and he was also top notch! The entire staff was caring and accommodating at all times.
What a blessing to be served by such trustworthy professionals. Thank you, Doctors and staff. I’ll be recommending you to all my friends in eye care need.
Such an incredible and professional staff, they made the entire experience enjoyable and very easy!! They were very thorough in explaining everything and I'm beyond pleased with the final outcome after my Lasik procedure. I'd highly recommend them and very thankful I was referred to them!
From start to finish the whole process was really so easy. The staff are really knowledgeable about what they do and they communicate very well. I always felt very comfortable. Don’t put off your surgery. I made the first call and 10 days later I could see. I’m so happy with the way everything went. Five stars are not enough.
From the minute I walked into the Vance Thompson Vision office in Omaha, I was impressed. The office is bright and clean and the beverage area and chocolate chip cookies were great. Their reception staff all had smiles on their faces and were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. My wait was minimal. The staff that completed the vision tests were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The Dr. explained everything and answered all my questions.
The day of my cataract surgery, all of the staff were amazingly friendly, from the receptionist, my RN who is great with IV's, the anesthesiologist who made me feel heard to Dr. Baartman who was reassuring, warm, and explained everything he was doing and he accomplished my surgery with humor and even sang to me.
If I had to sum the entire experience in 1 word, EXCELLENT! I would highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision for your vision needs.
Dr. Baartman and his staff are outstanding! Very professional and take great care of their patients. Highly recommend him and this office!
No one wants to have surgery but the staff and doctors were the most professional and kind people I have dealt with. Besides everything was a success. I would recommend to anyone
Very friendly people. Helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend for your vision issues.
Excellent customer service. Has been a great experience
This place has been amazing
WORLD CLASS CARE!!! Ever since my car accident 25 years ago, that damaged my iris and pupil, I have been waiting for a procedure to help repair my permanently dilated pupil and protect me from constant and debilitating light glare. The experts at Vance Thompson Vision have been working for years with my Optometrist and discovered a solution! Drs. Goertz & Baartman walked me through the process and delivered a beautiful repaired iris that provides me with necessary shading from sunlight, water glare, snow reflection et. al. that has been a game changer for my quality of life, especially driving. And their entire team worked together and helped with insurance questions and recovery care. I am forever grateful for VTV and how they collaborated with colleagues and changed my life forever! God bless you.
There is NO other place I’d go. VTV gave me an experience I’ll forever be grateful for with the BEST staff and doctors!!
The team is so nice and very professional.
Fantastic customer service. They made you feel very comfortable. Great outcome!
Very friendly, knowledgeable, professional and caring. Surgery was with very little pain. I would recommend family and friends without reservation.
Very friendly and comfortable. Great to see again!
Everything was top-notch. Very friendly staff and capable medical staff. I actually looked forward to the appointments! Highly recommended.
Efficient in and out. A little too corporate. However this is the first follow up since completing the 6 weeks of recovery. They need to ask how patients are doing.
From the minute we walked in the front door and were greeted with warm smiles to the nursing staff to the doctor for surgery…. I knew we had made the correct decision to have my surgery done in Omaha. Such caring and compassionate people! Not to mention the skill of the medical staff! I had no idea how much I was missing out on on a daily basis… thanks to these fine people I have color back in my life and can actually see! THANK YOU!
Great staff! The entire experience was A+!
Awesome clinic. Everyone including the receptionist were great. Procedures were all explained before hand & all were simple & painless. Plus Dr. Boardman sings beautifully!
Had 2 day cataract surgery 3 months ago. All aspects of the surgery and recovery have been excellent. Distance vision is 20/15.
I need glasses for reading but no big deal. Very pleased!
I have nothing but praise for the surgeries I had at Vance Thompson! Everyone - from the front desk to Dr Baartman were amazing! I have recommended them to many people- in fact my brother is currently going there for cataract surgery!

I was nervous about my cataract surgery and they made me very comfortable! The surgery went great and all aspects of care were kind and efficient. Dr. Baartman’s follow-up call was much appreciated!
The people there are friendly and professional in their actions. After having cataract surgery, I did not notice how bright the world is before surgery. I can actually read fine print now. Again, all the people are great there.
