Research at Vance Thompson Vision Sioux Falls

Supervised by doctors Thompson, Berdahl, and Terveen and supported by Vance Thompson Vision’s research department, the team in Sioux Falls 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, Sioux Falls’ team is working on trials that, in the long run, will bring even more advanced care to their patients.

The Sioux Falls Team

Our Sioux Falls teams are led by Dr. Thompson, Dr. Berdahl, and Dr. Terveen. All three surgeons believe strongly that ophthalmology moves forward through technology and teaching the next generation. They regularly contribute to advancements in the field and make their residency and fellowship programs a priority. While there are plentiful opportunities to share their world-class skill, all three surgeons are lifelong Midwesterners and have chosen to base their practice in Sioux Falls where they can best serve the people and area they call home.

Dr. Thompson is supported by optometrists Doug Wallin and Keith Rasmussen. Dr. Berdahl is supported by optometrists Justin Schweitzer and Jason Schmit. Dr. Terveen is supported by optometrists Mitch Ibach and Larae Zimprich. Along with the rest of the Sioux Falls team, they offer patients the best possible care, the latest advancements in technology, and a welcoming atmosphere to share their concerns and questions.

Sioux Falls Patient Ratings & Reviews


May 5, 2017

Every time I have been to the office in Sioux Falls, everyone from the lab techs to the receptionists, doctors and interns have been exceptionally friendly, helpful, and understanding. I have had the same stellar service when calling, whether about appointments or billing. Overall, this is probably the best customer service care I have ever received, and that is especially nice to find in the medical field where it is necessity rather than pleasure that causes people to come in. Besides fantastic customer service, everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable and happy to explain anything I asked about. If they didn't know the answer themselves, they would find out, or get someone who did know. This is especially reassuring when dealing with confusing and occasionally frightening medical issues, and I appreciated the clear competence of everyone I dealt with. I would recommend Vance Thompson Vision Center to anyone needing eye care in a heartbeat! Even when the outcome wasn't what was desired, it is clear they care a great deal about their patients and put their heart into their work.

I recently had LASIK with Dr. Vance Thompson and the only thing I can say is I wish I had done this sooner. Dr. Thompson was so comforting throughout the entire procedure. Everyone at Vance Thompson Vision was highly professional and friendly. If you are thinking about getting LASIK you should do it sooner than later. Vance Thompson Vision is top notch!

22 years ago I entrusted my care to Vance Thompson for LASIK surgery. When it came time for cataract surgery I never considered using anyone else. From beginning to end you can expect the entire staff to be consummate professionals. They are the BEST in the industry! What you'll never expect is how NICE they are. From your first phone call, throughout your surgical experience, up to you last appointment. you'll encounter the nicest, most compassionate, caring staff you'll ever meet.

Amazing experience at Vance Thompson’s in Sioux Falls! It was easy, painless for me, and honestly felt like a resort! Today I reached for my glasses after sleeping and realized I don’t need them anymore! It was a very personal, well-explained experience! I highly recommend! I am less than 24 hours out and can see better than 20/20 already!
