Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Robeson Family Vision Center the leading provider of vision care products and services in Winona.

Lane C. Robeson, O.D.

Dr. Robeson is originally from Huron, SD. He is a third generation Optometrist and learned from his father and grandfather that the key to success is to “take care of patients”. He graduated from Pacific University, in Forest Grove, OR. After his graduation, he moved to the Winona area and started the family practice you see today! He has been a practitioner in the Winona community for more than 30 years, and has thrived in the small town atmosphere. Dr. Robeson, more than anything, enjoys spending extra time with patients in order to really connect with them on a personal level. All of our patients have found that they can count on Dr. Robeson to go the extra mile to make every visit as comfortable and enlightening as possible. Schedule an appointment today to meet him yourself, and see the difference in service and attitude.

In March of 2024, Dr. Robeson received the Distinguished O.D. of the Year Award.

The Minnesota Optometric Association Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual Doctor of Optometry who has distinguished themselves within the profession for unusually significant contributions and outstanding achievements contributing to the advancement of the profession of optometry. It recognizes long-term dedication rather than any single contribution.
