Boynton’s eye clinic provides eye exams, eye injury and disease treatment, and contact lens fitting and follow-up care.

Most students who pay the Student Services Fee receive one eye exam per year at no cost after the bill has been sent to insurance (excludes exam for contact lenses). See Health Care Coverage page for coverage details.

To schedule an appointment, call the Eye Clinic at 612-624-2134. If you'd like, you may view the next available appointment at the Eye Clinic online. Sorry, we do not offer online appointment scheduling at this time.

Frame Shop
