River Lake Eye Clinic in Minneapolis

Our Story

The River Lake Eye Clinic in Minneapolis has been in the heart of the Longfellow/Cooper neighborhood in South Minneapolis, Minnesota for 40 years. The doctors and the staff have developed a national reputation for providing patient-focused, comprehensive examinations and treatment plans for eye care and mental health services.

Dr. Michel Hanen-Smith and Dr. Sandra Smith-Hanen have helped patients with their eye care services and psychological needs. With the addition of Dr. Joshua Hanen in 2013, the practice continues to provide excellent care, garnering accolades from peers and patients alike. Although relatively new to practice, Dr. Josh earned his fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry in 2014 and was named Minnesota Young Optometrist of the year by the Minnesota Optometric Association in 2015.
