Our Eye Doctor & Staff

Our optometrist at the Eyes of the World specializes in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Dr. Phillips takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. Phillips and his wife, Jennifer, moved to Eugene in 1998 so that Jennifer could pursue a graduate program at the University of Oregon.  Like so many others that move to Eugene, they found that after a few years of experiencing the unique culture, activities and climate, there was no leaving.  They have two children and two hairy dogs.
