Our Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as 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.

Our optometrists take 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.

Meet our doctors:

Dr. Rafael Borges

Dr. Rafael Borges has had an interesting path to becoming an optometrist. Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, his family moved to Minnesota at the age of 10. He went on to graduate from Anoka High School (Go Tornadoes!).

Having been born in San Juan, Dr. Borges is a native Spanish speaker and welcomes new patients from the Spanish speaking community. You will feel right at home in our practice.

In 1988, Dr. Borges received his BA, Cum Laude, in Biomedical Sciences from St. Cloud State University. He went on to receive his degree in optometry in 1993 from Ferris State University's Michigan College of Optometry and has been in practice for 20 years. Dr. Borges was motivated to become an optometrist by the great experience he had as child in need of glasses with his hometown optometrist. Dr. Borges has worn glasses since the age of 6.

When Dr. Borges is not seeing patients, he is involved in several different forms of martial arts, music such as playing the guitar, physical fitness and his most important job, raising his three boys.
