Dr. Randall J. Kempfer
I am originally from Foxhome, MN and graduated from high school in Breckenridge, MN. I attended North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND, and attended Pacific University College of Optometry near Portland, OR, where I earned my Doctorate of Optometry degree. I have completed additional training in ocular disease and special testing at the Marshfield Clinic, in Marshfield WI and the Blackwell Vision Center in Blackwell OK. At these training centers I gained extensive experience in ocular disease diagnosis and treatment providing state of the art care, including the use of specialized contact lenses that correct your prescription while you sleep by reshaping the cornea. During my training, I worked on the development of the MaxSight Tinted Contact lens used to enhance professional and amateur athletic performance. My primary interests are specialty contact lenses, primary eye care, ocular disease diagnosis and treatment, as well as surgical evaluation and post-operative care, along with geriatric care.
I currently reside in Fergus Falls with my wife, Tara and sons, Henry and Charlie. I am an avid Twins and NDSU fan and enjoy the outdoors, playing golf, reading, fishing, hunting, and cooking. I am currently the treasurer for the Noon Rotary club in Fergus Falls, and a board member for the United Way of Ottertail County serving as President in 2016. I also am involved with the Minnesota Optometric Association(MOA) as the chairperson for the education committee from 2007-2014. In 2015, I was elected to serve as a trustee for MOA Board of Directors and currently serve the Vice President role.
Dr. Kempfer was named “Young Optometrist of the Year” by the Minnesota Optometric Association in 2013.
