Dr. Allen Watson wrote a paper in college that compared the human eye to a camera.  That research prompted an interest in medicine and vision in particular.  A pediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Watson loves kids and enjoys giving and receiving high-fives and fist bumps.  He is compassionate and fun-loving and is often described as a kid himself – albeit a big one!  

Although he’s practiced for many years, Dr. Watson still gets a lift from seeing how a child’s first pair of glasses can improve their quality of life. “Often a child’s struggles in school can be related to poor vision.  Once this is corrected, their grades frequently improve.”

Dr. Watson is a passionate outdoorsman.  He loves to be in the mountains hiking, fishing, or hunting.
