Welcome to Wallerich Eye Care
At Wallerich Eye Care, we are proud to serve the Twin Cities Community. We provide the highest level of eye care in English and Spanish.
At Wallerich Eye Care, our staff and providers work together to ensure your visit is comfortable, efficient, and completed in a timely manner. During your visit, we look forward to providing the best possible vision correction while also detecting and assessing eye and systemic conditions during the comprehensive eye examination.
Our exam lengths vary based upon on the service and tests completed in office. A comprehensive eye examination typically lasts approximately one hour or less depending on several factors (dilation, purchasing contacts/glasses). There are other specialized services that take longer given the complexity of those evaluations.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
I had a great experience with Dr. Wallerich and his staff! He was kind, thorough, and explained things to me really well. He checked for things previous doctors had never looked for and I'm super glad he did! I would definitely go here again.

Dr. Wallerich is an exceptional O.D. who can communicate beautifully with his patients. Thank you for completing the exam in an efficient and timely manner. Also thank you for explaining diabetic retinopathy to me and what everything of the results from the exam means. I appreciate the recommendation for better vision correction options as well!
- Amber K.
I made an apt with Dr. Wallerich for a routine eye exam and was so pleased with his level of care and patience. I had a few questions and concerns about my vision health and Dr. Wallerich took the time to go over each one. I left feeling at ease, knowledgeable in my future options, and overall happy. I would absolutely recommend his practice and will be continuing my follow ups with him. Thank you so much!

The most thorough eye exam I've ever had in 66 years on this planet. Not since a brain injury 8 years ago when the doctors were attending to me have I experienced such a detailed exam, as well as learning about factors no other eye doctor mentioned. Kudos to the doctor and the people working with him, all professional, personable, gold stars all around!

The team at Wallerich Eye Care is the most considerate and knowledgeable staff that I’ve interacted with at any optometry practice. One of the opticians, Deborah, was able to help me solve an issue today with no judgement or hesitation. I continue to be impressed by everyone I meet at Wallerich.
