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 Academy of Ophthalmology
  • Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology
  • 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”.

Dear Richie Eye Clinic & LASIK Center Family and Friends,

As we head into the Holiday Season and the New Year, I have some news to share.

As many of you know, we have added some new doctors to our team in the last couple of years. Dr. Josh Spedding OD, our new Optometrist, joined us last summer and is currently seeing patients in both our Northfield and Faribault offices. We are thrilled to have Dr. Spedding on our team and welcome him and his family to the area.

Dr. Cory Miller, MD joined us in 2021 and we welcomed Dr. Mike Reinsbach, MD to our team this past summer. Both are Board Certified Ophthalmologists and skilled surgeons specializing in High Technology Cataract Surgery with Advanced Lens Implants, LASIK, Retinal injections, MIGS Surgery for Glaucoma, as well as the usual medical and surgical management of eye disease.

With the addition of these high performing providers, I am transitioning my role in 2023 to concentrate on Practice Development while continuing to serve as the Medical Director overseeing our practice protocols and procedures. Dr. Miller and Dr. Reinsbach will be assuming my day-to-day patient care duties.

I have done my best over the past several months to tell everyone of this transition plan while personally introducing Dr. Miller and Dr. Reinsbach; please accept my apologies if I missed any of you during this time.

Rest assured, we will continue our commitment to providing cutting edge care. Starting in 2023 look for Dropless Cataract Surgery, Light-Adjustable Lens Implants, and so much more…

Thank you for the Trust and Confidence you have shown me over the past 32 years. Please feel free to call us at (507) 332-9900 for questions, concerns, or clarification.

Sincerely,

Mike Richie, MD
