Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Tacoma Eye at Westgate a proud provider of vision care products and services in Tacoma.
Dr. George Meers – Optometrist
Dr. Meers has been an optometrist for 20 years. Over half of that time he has lived in Tacoma. He’s been an invited lecturer, faculty and staff member and has performed research at some of the best known Optometry and Ophthalmology teaching hospitals including the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida and the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
His areas of expertise include general eye exams, contact lenses and the non-surgical treatment of eye disease (especially dry eye, glaucoma and myopia). He is one of a few Tacoma eye doctors that earned fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry (2002) and the only optometrist in the area to be board certified in medical optometry.
Dr. Meers has been recognized for his career efforts and is most proud of being nominated by his peers as “optometrist of the year” for the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2014.
