Experience And Education
During his clinical rotations, Dr. Blight gained experience in a wide variety of practice modes. At the Veteran’s Affairs hospital in Spokane Washington, he gained skills and knowledge in diagnosis and management of ocular disease including glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and many other conditions. Following his time at the VA, Dr. Blight completed an externship dedicated to vision therapy and rehabilitation. He worked with a wide range of patients, including children dealing with teaming, tracking, and focusing vision problems; as well as patients suffering from post-concussive syndrome due to a traumatic brain injury.
He then went on to spend a focused rotation on contact lens fitting and evaluation, and learned much about diagnosis and treatment of irregular cornea and therapeutic specialty contact lenses. Finally, Dr. Blight finished his clinical rotation experience at an Indian Health Clinic in Oklahoma focused on primary eye care with an emphasis in ocular disease. Having gained important skills and grown as an eye care professional, Dr. Blight is excited to come home to Blackfoot and is prepared to serve his hometown community and provide the highest quality eye care.
