Mayo Clinic Outreach

Mayo Clinic ophthalmologists see patients at Oneota Valley Family Eye Care, downtown Decorah. If you need surgery:

  • If you need surgery, we can help you coordinate an appointment with a local Mayo Clinic Health System doctor at Winneshiek Medical Center (or any authorized local provider) for your pre-operative history and physical exam.
  • On the day of the scheduled surgery, your Mayo Clinic ophthalmologist will return to Decorah to perform the procedure at Winneshiek Medical Center.
  • Following your surgery, your Mayo Clinic ophthalmologist will provide follow-up care at Oneota Valley Family Eye Care.
