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 and Philip, 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, Philip eye doctors, and staff are committed to helping our communities achieve and maintain clear and healthy vision for years to come.

  • I had an eye issue over the weekend. Left a text Monday morning asking to see Dr. Wattenhofer ASAP. They called before they even opened to set up an early morning appointment. I was seen by their quick and efficient staff, and the explanations from Dr. Wattenhofer are ALWAYS so thorough, as was the examination. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Vision Source Specialists!!!!!
