"A Great Eye Care Place."

This is a great eye care place. They were friendly, helpful, and were great about answering questions and providing information. Ordering glasses was easy and the recommendations were spot-on.
I saw them treating all people, including children, with care and respect. My kids are asking when they can go and I think this will be the perfect place for them to get a good experience and develop positive feelings about health care.


Thank you, Rivertown Eye Care!

"Can't Recommend Highly Enough!"

Absolutely loved my experience at Rivertown Eye Care! Dr. Eric Slapnicher took so much time and detailed care to dial in on my fairly complicated and changing prescription. We found both contacts and glasses options that work for my various needs (e.g., distance/driving, lots of computer time, everyday wear). The optical department staff has always been incredibly kind, accommodating, and educational about my various options, and they have the most gorgeous selection of frames. Fabulous decor, excellent music, and safe, considerate staffing will have me coming back for all my eye care needs for years to come. Can't recommend Rivertown highly enough!

"I Always Have  A Great Experience!"

The clinic renovations are beautiful! The staff is warm and inviting right when you walk in. They seem to go above and beyond to ensure you get the best care possible. The opticians are very knowledgeable with the up-to-date trends and amazing frame selections. Their sunglasses selection is top-notch! The doctors are very personable and take the time to address your concerns. I always have a great experience each time I enter the front doors!

"Superior Service."

From start to finish, I was so pleased with the service I got and I'm so excited for my new glasses! Mackenzie, Dr. Eric, and Eric the gentleman who helped me choose my frames - superior service from all. The receptionist was also very gracious. I really enjoyed my visit and felt I got absolutely top-quality medical care for my eyes. The new facility is beautiful as well. Thank you all for a very pleasant way to spend my Friday morning!

I have been going to Rivertown Eye Care since I was a kid. So has my entire family. There is no reason to go anywhere else! You will never leave there being confused about anything. Great customer service. All staff willing to help with anything. A+

"The Best Customer Service Experience."

From the moment I walk in the door, I am treated like family (a guest), not a consumer. All of the employees go above and beyond to give the best customer service experience possible. I started going to Rivertown Eye Care as a child and I did try several others for a few years, but quickly realized nothing could compare. I have been back for many years and will not look elsewhere. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

"Nothing Short of Amazing."

Great place! Amazing with all ages! I've been going here since I was in high school (I am 34 yo now) and everyone is nothing short of amazing. I had to bring my toddler in the other day and they were so comforting towards him and were able to do their eye check without issue. They are kind, patient, and thorough. Thanks for such an amazing experience and thank you for making our toddler's experience great!

"Their Selection  of Glasses is the Best Around."

I enjoy every minute spent at Rivertown! The staff is always friendly and helpful and the doctors go above and beyond to listen to my needs. The optical staff is incredible and always help me find glasses within my budget. Their selection of glasses is the best around and I would recommend them to everyone!

"They Treat You  Like Royalty."

I have been going to RiverTown eye Care since 2013. I absolutely love the staff their service, professionalism & time and patience working with me. Just a wonderful overall great place to go for your eyewear and exams. In addition, it's an absolutely beautiful atmosphere and they treat you like royalty. I am very fortunate that I ran across Rivertown Eye Care...

"The Best Location Within the Twin Cities."

This is the best location within the Twin Cities to have a thorough yearly eye exam. Dr. McGree, Dena is very kind, intelligent, and is beyond attention to detail in her work. Our eyes are so important, and Dr. McGree treats your eyes as if they were her own. Dr. McGree answered every question that I had, did not rush me at all during my eye exam, and reviewed my eye health past/present to ensure my eyes stay as healthy as possible. Thank you!
When it comes to getting quality prescription glasses/sunglasses, you do not have far to go! Everyone within the Optical Team is knowledgeable, kind, intelligent, and really do all they can to make sure you receive the best eyewear possible. Karisa is amazing and spent time with me to make sure I found the best frame and color of lens possible. (SALT.) Karisa reviewed my insurance and made sure every benefit offered to me was applied towards my frames and lenses.
Last but not least, the front desk staff is always kind and inviting when you enter through the front doors. You feel welcome from the moment you arrive, and that is appreciated!


"Excellent Doctors and Staff."

I've had only great experiences here. My most recent visit was Monday. I had an eye injury, so I needed to get in ASAP, and they did just that. They have excellent doctors and staff. Great exams and a great selection of glasses.

"I Won't Go Anywhere Else."

I was 14-years-old when Dr. Joe first examined my eyes. Now in my 50s, I still trust him or his son, Dr. Eric, with my vision health. My husband and four adult sons do, too.

And the clinic is a welcoming environment for all ages. Hot tea or a cold beverage in a real, healthy-sized cup while fitted for your eyeglasses? Yes, please! Dr. Joe now works only two days a week. He's earned it! Still, Dr. Eric has done an excellent job of carrying out his father's legacy of excellence in patient care. They genuinely care about the people they serve and their community. I've lived all over the Twin Cities and in five states. I won't go anywhere else for my vision care needs.

"Friendly, Prompt, Professional, and Knowledgable."

I have always had friendly, prompt, professional, and knowledgeable service. They were recently very accommodating in rescheduling an appointment for me when I had a last-minute

complication that prevented me from getting to the appointment.

–Jim H.

"Treat You Like Family."

The folks there treat you like family. The place and atmosphere are the top of the line. I encourage anyone who has eye care needs this is the place you want to go to👍

–Tony H.

"Highly Recommend."

Excellent customer service and optometry all in one convenient location in Hastings. Got both glasses and sunglasses here. Highly recommend!

–Tom B.

"A Welcoming Environment + Detailed Exam."

Thanks, Rivertown Eye Clinic for the welcoming environment, detailed exam, and amazing support in picking out my perfect glasses! An extra shout-out to Krystal; beyond helpful, had great advice, and explained everything without pushing me to add more. Thanks Krystal and the Rivertown staff, I’ll be back!!!

–Katie R.

An Awesome Experience!

My visit was so efficient! What an awesome experience! They answered all my vision questions.

–Karen H.

"I Know I'm  in Good Hands."

Dr. McGree went out of her way to explain my particular situation in ways that were easily understood. Office staff are pleasant, efficient, and welcoming. I know I’m in good hands at Rivertown Eyecare!

The best eye professionals around. I have been going there for 40-plus years.
Great service, many frame styles available to choose from.
