Nicholas J. Blight, OD

On behalf of the entire staff at Advanced EyeCare, we are happy to announce the addition of Dr. Nick Blight to the Advanced Eyecare Team. Dr. Blight was born and raised in Blackfoot Idaho and graduated from Snake River High School. He attended college at Brigham Young University- Idaho where he studied studio art with a minor in health profession studies. After graduation, he completed his Doctor of Optometry degree at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove Oregon.

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.
Dr. Blight and his wife Chelsie, have two beautiful and energetic children that keep them both busy. In his free time, he enjoys spending time outdoors involved in a variety of activities ranging from landscape painting, hiking, camping and exploring new locations and activities.
