Our entire The Dalles and Hood River optometry team are committed to providing advanced vision care in a professional and comfortable environment. As an optometrist in The Dalles and Hood River, our primary eye care service includes a complete eye exam that analyzes eye health and vision function. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, Dr. Bricker provides testing for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Our offices also offer glasses, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative care.

Eye Exams

Our team take even routine eye exams very seriously. During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our The Dalles and Hood River patients will receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. Dr. Bricker will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement are the various types of contact lens options available today. Dr. Bricker will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling Preferred Optical in The Dalles: 541-296-5878 or The Eyeglass Store in Hood River: 541-386-3937. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions.


Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Dr. Bricker provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call The Dalles: 541-296-5878 or Hood River: 541-386-3937 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
