Meet Dr. Rasmussen

Dr Mark Rasmussen, your Eye Doctor Santa Fe specializes in understanding how the human eye works, as well as how to diagnose diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Dr Rasmussen, Optometrist near you takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
