About Visions Eye Care & Vision Therapy CenterDr. Angela R. Gulbranson
Dr. Angela R. Gulbranson received her bachelor’s degree from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD in 1996 and her doctorate degree in optometry from Indiana University in 2000. Ever since receiving her first pair of glasses when she was in 7th grade, she knew she wanted to be an eye doctor and work with children. Once she began practicing as an optometrist and seeing children she saw a tremendous number of children who had vision disorders that were interfering with their ability to read and learn. As a result she pursued post graduate training in developmental optometry which also focuses on vision therapy.
She has been practicing in Sioux Falls for over 10 years. Dr. Gulbranson is a member of many local, state and national professional organizations. Her special interests are in pediatrics, focusing on developmental optometry and vision therapy for reading and learning disabilities. Dr. Gulbranson is the founder of Visions Eye Care and Vision Therapy Center. In her free time, she enjoys, traveling and spending time with her family.
As a mother, she loves working with children and has a special way in reaching children who struggle with visual challenges.
“It is incredibly rewarding to see children succeed who previously struggled with reading and learning.” Dr. Angela Gulbranson .

When asked what she enjoyed most about working at Visions, she shared, “Most people don’t realize that there are different types of eye exams. At Visions our exams are truly comprehensive. We look at more than the health of your eyes and whether or not you need glasses, we evaluate how your eyes function when you are working, reading, participating in sports or just enjoying life. We make sure your eyes are doing their job easily and not holding you back from achieving your goals.”
