your vision, our mission - T.J. Clinch, MD


Dr. Clinch is a board-certified ophthalmologist and a Central Nebraska native. He and his wife have four children and one grandchild.

Thank you for trusting us with the honor of caring for your eyes! Cataract surgery is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to maximize your vision, because it is the one time that the technology, including the specific lens implant, locks in your visual function for the remainder of your life.

In 2007, Kearney Eye opened the region’s first ever Eye Surgery Center. Since then, we have successfully performed thousands of eye surgeries and lasers every year.  A few of the other “firsts” we’ve been honored to bring to Central Nebraska:

  • Laser refractive surgery
  • Astigmatism-correcting (toric) IOLs
  • Presbyopia-correcting IOLs
  • Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) for glaucoma
  • Drop-A-Day cataract surgery
  • Microinvasive glaucoma surgery (iStent)
  • Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery

We take great pride in being the region’s leader, consistently maximizing each of our valued patient’s vision, tailored individually with the latest innovative technology.  Thank you again for the privilege of helping you to see your world clearer!
