Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey R Vaninwegen has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

excellent experience

I was in need of an eye exam and live in Ramsey. I read the reviews of Dr. Van Inwegen and was impressed by how many patients had good experiences. (on an aside to the above person, if you have not seen any doctor in two years why would they refill an rx. What doctor would do that?) The staff was very pleasant and I didn't wait long in the waiting room. Dr. Van Inwegen was professional and explained, in detail, everything to me. I left feeling that I picked a competent ophthalmologist.

Very professional and personable. Explained alternatives for cataract surgery clearly. Honest about the lack of benefit of "laser" cataract surgery; just a way for doctors to get more money.
