Sometimes eye problems can’t be corrected with drug or other therapies and require surgical solutions.

box surgery 1Dr. Michael Richie has performed thousands of surgeries and has become known for his skill as a physician, innovative techniques and exceptional care for patients.

Eye surgeries are among the most commonly performed and successful surgical procedures in the world. Most surgeries do not even require an overnight stay or hospital visit, but can be performed at the Crossroads Surgery Center in Faribault.

In addition to cataract surgery, we also perform eyelid surgery and YAG laser procedures.

Dear Friends,

Although Richie Eye Clinic has remained open for urgent and emergent care through this tough time, Governor Walz has now declared that Minnesotans can resume routine eye visits and elective eye surgeries. We are ready with our “new normal.” Here is our plan:

  1. We ask all patients entering the clinic to bring your own cloth mask or face covering. We have a limited supply for those who do not have their own. Our team will “masked up” as well.
  2. Upon arrival, we will ask you some screening questions, check your temperature, and ask you to sanitize your hands. If you have a cough, cold, fever, or just don’t feel good, please stay home.
  3. Feel free to use our new virtual check-in; call or text us from your car and we will advise you when we are ready to escort you to a room.
  4. As always, we sanitize each room after every patient.
  5. Our Optical is open to serve you by appointment
  6. Please practice “social distancing” during your entire visit.

We are excited to add that our Northfield location will resume clinic hours starting Monday May 18th, as well.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Mike Richie
