Canada Patients

Greetings from Drs. Steve Bagan, M.D., and Thomas Strinden, M.D. We are Board Certified Ophthalmologists (Eye Surgeons) in Fargo, North Dakota. We are able to provide state-of-the-art cataract surgery and related services, in a timely convenient way for our patients desiring to come to Fargo.

We are associated as Bagan Strinden Vision. Each of us has been in practice for 25+ years, and both have done over 15,000 cataract surgeries. We also provide a wide variety of other medical and surgical eye services at our private clinic, including Lasik surgery, glaucoma, and others.

Some patients are frustrated by long wait times for cataract surgery. We co-own our surgery center, and can get patients in with little or no wait times. We will work with your local Optometrist to coordinate care, and in most cases we can get both eyes done in the same week, and have your Optometric Doctor do the pre-operative and post-operative care.

We will want you to have an appointment with your Optometrist, to assure that you are a candidate for cataract surgery. We can do all the measurements, tests and scheduling for surgery in one office appointment with us, and do the surgeries within 1-3 days. All surgeries are done with IV sedation to make the process more comfortable, and reduce any anxiety about the procedure.

Please call us (701) 293-8242 or toll free 1 (800) 521-6638 with questions or to schedule a consultation and surgery. We look forward to a great experience!

Your procedure will be done at Norther Plains Surgery Center, the area's premier eye surgery center. The Center was established in 1999 by our surgeons who felt there was a need to bring state of the art technology and treatments to the Fargo, ND area.

Norther Plains Sugery Center takes pride in continuing to bring the latest technology with over 150 years combined surgical experience for our surgeons.

Our surgeons, nurses and support staff have one clear purpose - to maximize your individual vision potential and outcomes in an environment that is centered around patient safety, comfort and excellence.
