Meet Our Ophthalmologist


Dr Micheal Richie

Dr. Michael G. Richie

Dr. Michael Richie is a comprehensive ophthalmologist with a special interest in laser vision correction (LASIK and PRK) and cataract surgery, especially refractive cataract surgery using high technology multifocal and toric lens implants. Dr. Richie incorporates his years of LASIK experience into his cataract surgery, creating personalized advanced surgical plans unique to each individual patient for correcting astigmatism, dealing with reading, and honing visual outcomes. After graduating from St John’s University, Dr. Richie received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota, followed by an Internship at Hennepin County Medical Center and a Residency in Ophthalmology at the Eye Institute, The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Dr. Richie’s professional memberships and affiliations include:

  • American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons
Having already hit the Perfect Golf Shot (Pokegama Golf Course, Grand Rapids, MN, 9-4-05, par 3, 170-yard 8th Hole with a 6 iron), Dr. Richie has no plans to climb a mountain or jump out of an air plane, although he may try his hand at writing the Great American Novel. Dr. Richie and his wife Mary have lived in Faribault since 1991 and actively support their Church and local schools, the United Way, the local Chamber of Commerce, and a variety of other community organizations and charities. They love skiing in the mountains and are now wise enough to break for lunch and warm their toes. Finally, they have three adult children and love their “empty nest”.
