In 2019, Wolfe Eye Clinic celebrated its 100-year anniversary. Since 1919, Wolfe Eye Clinic has been instrumental in advancing Iowa’s ophthalmic technology. Our clinic and physicians hold many “Iowa Firsts” – from being the first to perform small-incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery in 1972 and in 1994 performing the first LASIK eye surgery with the excimer laser to performing the first glaucoma surgery with the use of a Trabectome in 2007. Most recently, Wolfe Eye Clinic was the first in Iowa to use the NGENUITY® Visualization System for retina surgery in 2017 and in 2019, not only implanted the first PanOptix Trifocal intraocular lens during cataract surgery but the first Visian® Toric Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) to correct astigmatism.

Our success was not accomplished alone. It is with the compassionate help of our nearly fifty providers and over 450 employees that Wolfe Eye Clinic has been able to make a difference in so many lives throughout Iowa communities. Thank you for considering Wolfe Eye Clinic for your career endeavor.
