Specific areas of interest include amblyopia, intermittent exotropia, and an evidence-based approach to functional vision disorders.

Dr. Simmons received his Bachelor’s degree at Seattle Pacific University and went on to Pacific University of Oregon where he received both his Doctorate of Optometry and Master of Education in Visual Function and Learning. Following graduation, he joined a pediatric optometry practice in the Seattle area for additional training and experience in the management of strabismus and amblyopia. After three years there, he moved to Denver to complete a residency program in Pediatric Specialty Care at Children’s Hospital Colorado for advanced training in pediatric ocular disease and genetic syndromes affecting the eye.

He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and is an active member of the Minnesota Optometric Association. He has volunteered his services domestically with Remote Area Medical and Special Olympics as well as abroad with service trips to Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and the Philippines.

A native of Boise, Idaho, Dr. Simmons was introduced to the Midwest through his wife, Nancy, who grew up on a dairy farm near Watkins. On his days off he enjoys family time, photography, snow-skiing, and challenging his wife to CrossFit workouts.

Dr. Simmons is now accepting pediatric patients for routine and specialty care.
