Dr. Greg Richardson at Craters of the Moon

Dr. Richardson became interested in Optometry as a child when he put on his first pair of glasses. He was enchanted to see leaves on the trees and stars in the sky. That’s when he decided he wanted to help other people see what he was seeing for the first time. He loves being an Optometrist, and has treated over 15,000 patients.

Dr. Richardson graduated from Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, California. He has clinical experience in the Fullerton Eye Clinic, Los Angeles Veterans Administration, Santa Monica Center for the Partially Sighted, Long Beach Naval Shipyard Clinic, plus many years of experience with patients of all ages in Southeast Idaho.

Dr. Richardson takes a minimum of 20 credits of continuing education each year to keep current with new technology and knowledge in the field. For example in the last few years, he has earned certificates in ocular drug therapy and laser surgery co-management. He is a member of the American Optometric Association, dedicated to excellence in the field of Optometry. Getting it right is important to him.

Dr. Richardson loves kids and has given years of service to the Boy Scouts of America as a Cub Master and Scout Committee Member. He completed the Woodbadge Scout Leadership training as a member of the “Moose Patrol.” For many years, he presented puppet shows to 1st grade kids to teach eye safety in a fun way. (Look for the “Dr. Goodsight” puppet in his exam room.)

When he can break away for a few days, he and his family enjoy hiking and boating at Red Fish Lake. They also like to work on projects together such as the fort and waterfall they built in their backyard. He also built all the frame displays in the office.

He enjoys refurbishing computers as a hobby. He does some programming and also puts together networks. He especially likes “Macs” but has grown to appreciate IBM computers too.

After hours, he’s been caught turning up the music and dancing to a steel drum band, or “rocking out” to a current tune.

Dr. Richardson loves being an Optometrist and really enjoys meeting and helping people. He cares about people and is down to earth. “Getting it right” is important to him. He wants his patients to feel comfortable and to have the best service available. We know you’ll enjoy your time with him.

Highly Recommended!

Here is what a few of our recent patients have said:

“I didn’t feel rushed. He was really patient with me and took the time to get my prescription right. These are the best glasses I’ve ever had!”

“He’s a really nice guy, I’m glad I came.”

“We just love him. I tell all my friends about him!”

“This is my first visit, but we got along great! I think we could go on a fishing trip together!”

“He’s a good guy. I’d recommend him to anyone. I like what he does.”

“That was the most thorough eye exam I’ve ever had.”

“My little girl was scared to come, but by the end, he was making her laugh!”
