Best eyecare, smartest, most thorough doctors in the midwest. They go deep on every exam, and after your appointment they know everything there is to know about your eyes, front to back.

Slow service

— William S. (Patient since 2017)

I wasn't pleased with sitting and waiting for a half an hour after my eyes were dilated. I also found it unpleasant having to listen to AM radio with advertising and Christmas music during the half-hour.

— June S. (Patient since 2018)

Loved Doctor Josh! He had to help me and finish what another ophthmalogist couldn't complete! I'm so confident with this doctor! I found my new optometrist in Dr. Josh, since my last one retired a few years back! Thank God, my eyes are in good hands, now!

— Jon S. (Patient since 2018)

Absolutely wonderful service, I'm glad I found this place. Before I found River lake clinic, I was going to Minnesota eye consultants, and service was just meh... Never felt like they cared that much. I'm so glad I made the switch, I suffer from an eye disease called karatoconus and honestly, my eyes have never felt as good as they do now from working with Dr. Joshua! I actually look forward to going to my appointments and the staff has been nothing but nice and patient with me, I've never been to a Dr's office where the nurses ask me if I want tea, water, etc.... I will continue to go to River lake clinic as long as I live in the area and would definitely recommend this to anyone that has eye issues and especially for people with karatoconus!! Thanks once again for being so caring,

— Justin L. (Patient since 2017)

Great clinic. Dr. Joshua Hanen provides excellent service, explaining things in detail with an enthusiastic and friendly attitude. In my last visit I had questions about lasik, contacts, and some potential eye issues and Dr. Josh spent around half an hour answering all of my questions. Very positive and genuine personality. Some of the other staff also stayed with me for about 20 minutes as I struggled figuring out how to put in and take out contacts for the first time. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful experience!

— Stephanie S. (Patient since 2017)

I was surprised at how quickly I was able to get in to figure out what was going on with an unexpected change in vision. Dr. Mike was very thorough and knowledgeable in explaining to me what was likely happening with the big change in my vision. He spent time with me to consider the complexity of my situation and came up with a plan that was sensitive to both keeping costs down while at the same time dealing with my eye and related health issues. All other staff were also helpful and friendly.

— Craig K. (Patient since 2017)

I used to pick any random doctor when it was time for an eye exam. No more. Dr. Joshua Hanen is my eye doctor going forward. Professional, thorough and personable. He made recommendations with my interests as his top priority. River Lake Clinic is my new home for eye care.

— Michael F. (Patient since 2017)

Very nice people. Great service. I have previously had a couple of bad experiences with another eye doctor. I just made the switch and am thrilled. They were fast, efficient, did not over-sell products or services and got my prescription adjusted so that I can see better than ever before.

— Joy A. (Patient since 2016)

I was terrified when I experienced floaters and flashing lights in my right eye. I called River Lake Clinic the next morning, and they got me in immediately. Dr Mike has developed a thorough protocol to determine if the issue is due to the retina or the vitreous. I was so relived to learn that I would not need surgery! I felt so comfortable and confident in the exam I received, and I really appreciated the time Dr Mike took to explain everything to me. I am so grateful that River Lake Clinic was there for me when I really needed help! Thank you so much!
