Welcome to Dr. Dale Bricker
Your Optometrist in the Columbia River Gorge

Call The Dalles: 541-296-5878 or Hood River: 541-386-3937 today.

As a licensed optometric physician, Dr. Bricker provides comprehensive exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision.  Since graduating from Pacific University College of Optometry with distinction in 1992, Dr. Bricker has practiced in a variety of eye care settings including Ophthalmology clinics, Laser Vision Correction surgery centers and various private practice settings.  He has lectured on the topics of refractive surgery including Lasik, PRK, Surgical reversal of Presbyopia and LTK for Hyperopia, as well as given clinical instruction on punctal plug insertion to treat dry eyes.  Throughout his career, Dr. Bricker has come to feel strongly that quality patient care includes both clinical expertise as well as time spent with his patients listening to them and giving a thorough explanation of his findings.

Dr. Bricker is trained to diagnose and treat a range of eye health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic eye disease.  He also works closely with subspecialists when surgical intervention is required, and often performs both pre and postoperative care whenever possible.

Dr. Bricker works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Bricker's dedication to continuing education that our patients in the Columbia River Gorge receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.

Dr. Bricker provides eye care in two different locations in the Gorge:  Preferred Optical in The Dalles, and The Eyeglass Store in Hood River.
