Providing Eye Care for America's Army

Dr. Thompson has served our country as a member of the United States Army Reserves and the Kansas Army National Guard. He has been called to active duty twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. His service has included active duty tours at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, and as the Chief of Ophthalmology at Irwin Army Community Hospital at Fort Riley. He has performed hundreds of PRK and LASIK refractive surgery procedures for troops heading overseas.

Refractive surgery helps our troops in the field become less dependent on glasses. Contact lens use in the field environment results in a significant increase in the risk of sight threatening infection that may lead to permanent scarring of the eyes. After refractive surgery, our soldiers do not need to wear inserts in their gas masks and don not have to worry about losing their glasses.

Dr. Thompson has been impressed with the quality, devotion, and service of our men and women in uniform. They face difficult tasks and challenges and do so with great courage and devotion. It is an honor to care for them. He has served in the Kansas National Guard as the 35th Infantry Division Surgeon, Kansas State Surgeon, Deputy Commander Clinical Services and Commander of the Kansas Medical Detachment.
