Valley Vision Clinic was established in 1969 and is entering its 38th year of providing primary eye care to the Red River Valley. Today, Valley Vision Clinic remains one of the largest Optometric group practices in the United States. It strives to provide exceptional family eye care in a compassionate and family oriented atmosphere while using advanced diagnostic, treatment and education services. Located at 2200 S. Washington St., the Valley Vision Clinic now has a six doctor staff including Dr. David Biberdorf, Dr. Michael Emmerich, Dr. Lyle Hall, Dr. Avery Jones, Dr. Greg Otto and Dr. David Solseng. It has expanded to offer vision care services at offices in Ada, MN and Northwood, ND.
Valley Vision Clinic prides itself as being able to offer vision care services to patients of all ages. As a participant of the nationwide "Infantsee" program, free vision screenings to all infants aged 6-18 months are provided and may help identify and correct sight threatening vision problems before they develop.
The doctors and technicians at Valley Vision Clinic are highly skilled in fitting "hard to fit" contact lenses, including soft disposable, gas permeable, astigmatic and bifocal contact lenses. Recent advances in the industry has led to a popular method of controlling myopia through overnight lenses that gently mold the corneal surface (called the Gentle Vision Shaping System or GVSS) while a persons sleeps. Through GVSS and advanced topographical mapping of the cornea, we can now offer a non-surgical alternative to refractive laser methods of treating nearsightedness.
Valley Vision Clinic remains one of the few clinics in the upper Midwest that specializes in diagnosing and treating learning related problems, "crossed-eyes" (strabismus), and "lazy eyes" (amblyopia). Many visual skills that involve two-eyed coordination, focusing and tracking can be enhanced through our in house vision therapy department.
Valley Vision Clinic has the latest diagnostic equipment for the treatment of glaucoma; this includes the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer and the Heidelberg HRT Coherent Laser Scanner for mapping of the optic nerve head. At the yearly diabetic eye exam, a digital photograph of the back of the eye (retina) is taken for evaluation for diabetic retinopathy.
Valley Vision Clinic now offers age-related macular degeneration (AMD) testing with Foresee PHP. Foresee PHP is designed to reveal wet AMD at its onset and early stages, before the damage causes permanent vision loss.
Some of the areas of state-of-the-art care provided by the doctors at Valley Vision Clinic include management of eye infections, dry eyes and ocular allergies. The doctors at Valley Vision Clinic also diagnose and treat cataracts, glaucoma and other diseases of the eye. They also see patients on an emergency basis for any eye problem.
An on-site optical laboratory compliments the work of Valley Vision Clinic in order to provide the latest in lens option of Varilux lenses, transition or photogrey lens tints along with the latest ultra thin lenses. The latest designer frames from the United States, Germany and other countries are available in our newly designed optical boutique.
