Dr. Jason Egbert – Optometrist
Dr. Jason Egbert joined the practice in the summer of 2016 and has been a fantastic addition to our team. Dr. Egbert and his darling wife Geri are thrilled to be back in the West. Both Geri and Jason are south east Idaho natives and love the familiar, tight-knit Battle Ground community. What a wonderful impression this community has made!
Dr. Egbert’s sincerity and quick laugh makes him an instant friend. He has a passion for providing quality vision care for patients of all ages, especially children. Much of his focus during clinical rotations was directed at improving vision for little ones. Another highlight of his Optometry training included several months of ocular disease management at a Veterans’ Hospital, taking care of some of the people that he admires most: America’s veterans and active military men and women. Dr. Egbert graduated with honors from Brigham Young University – Idaho and Southern California College of Optometry.
Jason and Geri love to travel and explore new places and cultures, and have a special interest in finding the best places to eat. Dr. Egbert gained his love for culture and food while serving as a missionary for the LDS church in Houston, TX. He also maintains fluency in Spanish as a result of his service. Dr. Egbert loves playing and watching sports of all kinds and if you want to start a conversation, ask him about last night’s game. The Egberts’ latest adventure is anything but boring. They have become foster parents and are happy to have their hearts and hands full.
