He joined the practice of Associated Ophthalmologists on East Main Street in Ramsey in 1996, and has practiced there for nineteen years.

Dr. Van is honored to be serving his hometown community for so many years. Dr. Van Inwegen's specialty is vision corrective surgery.

The evolution of this field had grown rapidly in the recent years, and Dr. Van's training is second to none. Using the very latest technology, combined with his surgical skills, Dr. Van will help you to gain improved vision and freedom from wearing glasses. Newer lens implant innovation will correct distance, astigmatism, and reading vision, with minimal need for glasses use.
