Eye Exams

Dr. Leidenix and the The Eye Clinic of North Dakota team take even routine eye exams very seriously.

Our doctors will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition. Call us a today at (701) 222-2020 to schedule an appointment.

Contact Lenses

Not sure that glasses are for you? Advances in the field of optometry have produced a variety of different types of contact lenses with a range of benefits. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement are the various types of contact lens options available today. Our optometrists will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling (701) 222-2020. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions.


Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At The Eye Clinic of North Dakota, Dr. Towle and Dr. Hansted provide pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK. Call (701) 222-2020 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.

Custom LASIK

Custom LASIK is another state-of-the-art procedure offered to treat individuals with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Custom LASIK is similar to conventional LASIK; however, the procedure applies advanced computerized tracking techniques as well as three-dimensional wave scan technology, which records each patient's unique vision characteristics and aberrations for a completely personalized treatment.

Intended for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, IntraLase works just like Custom LASIK with the added advantage of using advanced IntraLaseĀ® laser technology to create the corneal flap for a completely bladeless experience for patients. IntraLase is the 100 percent laser-guided approach to LASIK surgery, giving our surgeons superb accuracy and control over the procedure. Read More.

Cataract & Lens Implant Surgery

Cataracts occur when the natural lens in the eye becomes clouded, impairing vision. Cataract and lens implant surgery at our practice is now a highly developed outpatient procedure that does not require needles or sutures. We use some of the most modern lens implants available, which can help minimize the use of corrective eyewear at all distances. Read More.

Treatment for Glaucoma

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in individuals. Patients suffering from glaucoma have a variety of treatment options available to help reduce the pressure within the eye. We can use topical eye drops as well as advanced laser surgery methods such as trabeculoplasty, iridotomy, and cyclophotocoagulation. We also offer conventional surgery for extreme glaucoma cases.

Vision Restoration for Aging Eyes

Our practice offers vision restoration treatments for aging eyes. These treatments are mostly concerned with improving eyesight in patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness for individuals over age 65. These modalities include magnifying devices, closed circuit TV, and large print materials, as well as surgery. Read More.
