Research at Vance Thompson Vision Omaha

Supervised by Dr. Baartman and Dr. Provencher and supported by Vance Thompson Vision’s research department, the team in Omaha is actively studying glaucoma, cataracts, corneal disease, and presbyopia correction as well as refractive treatments. Their efforts to share study opportunities with patients and to help bring new treatments to market contributes to breakthroughs that improve vision and enrich lives.

Studies are ongoing and fall into two categories: sponsored clinical trials, most of which are FDA-monitored; or investigator-initiated trials, studies sparked by our doctors’ desire to understand an already-approved technology better. At any given time, Omaha’s team is working on trials that, in the long run, will bring even more advanced care to their patients.

I had the best experience in every way. From caring and courteous staff, a knowledgeable and expert surgical team, to making me feel at ease and valued from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. And I have the best eye sight I've had in years, and that is priceless. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Vance Thompson Vision is the best place in Omaha. The people are wonderful, knowledgeable, kind, timely I’m sad that I don’t have to ever go back!

Vance Thompson Vision is an efficient, organized, and caring experience in eye care. All the staff were friendly and patient-focused. Dr. Nguyen made sure she had the diagnostic testing needed to recommend the right options for my cataract surgery. She explained the results, and answered any questions I had. Dr Baartman did an excellent job with my cataract surgery. I was surprised and impressed when Dr. Baartman called me the evening after surgery to check to see how I was doing. I also got a check-in call the day after surgery. This is a fine example of how healthcare should be.

If I could give 10 stars on a 5 star scale, I would. Dr Baartman and the staff at Vance Thompson Vision are amazing. They took so great care of me and my Refractive Lense replacement surgery couldn’t have gone better and my results are absolutely amazing!! Dr Baartman is the best.

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!

June 30, 2021

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.

October 5, 2021

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.
