Welcome To
Vision Source Specialists

Vision Source Specialists invites you to rethink quality eye care with our highly-skilled optometrists, state-of-the-art vision technology, and educated staff at our two locations: downtown Rapid City, South Dakota. We have been providing vision care services such as comprehensive eye exams, contact fittings, treatment and diagnosis for eye diseases, and optical care in the Black Hills since 1998.

Our optical team can assist all patients in finding eyewear that meets vision and lifestyle needs. We offer eyeglass frames and sunglasses from an array of brands including, but not limited to: Ray Ban, Oakley, Tiffany, Coach, Michael Kors, Maui Jim, and Wiley X. Not only do we strive to provide impeccable patient care to everyone who walks in our doors, but all of our staff are trained in the Essilor Expert Program to ensure top-notch lens selection for all patients. We are also one of the only optometrists in the state of South Dakota who boast dry eye treatment and diagnosis through the latest technologies such as Lipiflow, Oculus Keratograph 5M, and more.

Our Rapid City eye doctors and staff are committed to helping our communities achieve and maintain clear and healthy vision for years to come.

  • My husband and I are very pleased with our entire experience at Vision Source. The receptionist, vision techs, Dr. Pearson, and eye glass specialist Dan were all kind, helpful, and thorough. The office, patient rooms and eye glass center were clean and attractive. We trust these people with our vision needs.

  • Very happy with entire experience. I was late due to an accident on I90 and then Deadwood Ave. Road construction. I had tried to call in but got VM. I promptly received a text message. I let them know I was going to be late. Dr Dawn was wonderful, as was all of her staff. Everything was explained clearly. I would recommend her office.
