The Premier Eye Care Center of Alexandria
Our Vance Thompson Vision Alexandria facility features decades and generations of exceptional eye care services. Dr. Lowell Gess opened the Alexandria clinic in 1975 after completing missionary work as a general and eye surgeon in Sierra Leone. His oldest son, Dr. Timothy Gess, went on to pursue ophthalmology and continued the practice. Today, the clinic is led by Timothy’s daughter, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Deborah Ristvedt. The Gess-Ristvedt family has established a legacy of providing world-class care and advanced technology. Dr. Ristvedt utilizes innovative techniques to provide comfortable and quality eye care for every patient she treats. Before, during, and after your consultation or procedure, Dr. Ristvedt and her team of optometrists and ophthalmologists are available to answer any questions you may have about your treatment process. Our goal at Vance Thompson Vision Alexandria is to continue the Gess-Ristvedt family tradition of providing each of our patients with the best possible patient care.
