Vision Screenings

Working with Cold Spring Eye Clinic and many wonderful volunteers, LAKES Eye Clinic has assisted with the elementary school vision screenings for District 750. We screen all 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade students in all 6 elementary buildings in the district!

Dollars for Scholars

LAKES Eye Clinic proudly awards a $500 scholarship to a graduating ROCORI senior, generally a student interested in the medical field of study. We are happy to support many students over the years reach their goal in the field of health care.

Belt Sander Races

LAKES Eye Clinic has proudly sponsored a belt sander to race in the Cold Spring Hometown Pride Belt Sander races! We have entered a belt sander each year the race has been held; we have laughed, cheered, celebrated and been defeated over the past years of racing. We hope to see you some day in the spectator stands cheering on the eyeball!

Kids Carnival

LAKES Eye Clinic and fellow tenants in the Cold Spring Building Center started the Kids Carnival in the summer of 2006 in conjunction with hometown Pride Days. We had great fun over many years of the event interacting with our patients and their families. Now, LAKES Eye Clinic sponsors the Friday night band Downtown.

Soup & Chili Bowl

LAKES Eye Clinic had entered several times into the Cold Spring Jaycees Soup and Chili Bowl event. Although we never did claim any winning prizes, we had a great time!



In 2012 and 2014 the entire office staff and Dr. Femrite attended International Vision Expo West in Las Vegas. We took classes in patient care, new spectacle lens technologies, frame adjusting, and repairs.

We place significant emphasis on new technologies, tools, and products to enhance our patient's vision and eyecare experience. We will continue to educate ourselves to provide you the best service possible.

Health Fair

FairWe have been fortunate to participate in several public and private health fairs in the Cold Spring community. It is always fun to discuss eye care with various individuals and to see so many local employers support preventative health care.

We have participated in the Granite Company Health Fair, Cold Spring Community Showcase and Gold'n Plump Poultry Health Fair.

Ah, summer parade season! We have had years of fun entertaining people of all ages with our giant, walking and waving EYEBALLS!
