In practice for 26 years in Peoria and Sun City, Dr. Morgan escaped from the heat of the valley and is excited to be in Prescott! After graduating from the Illinois College of Optometry, he moved to Arizona and started Eye Tech Eye Associates in Sun City in 1993. As a medically oriented private practice, Dr. Morgan had the opportunity to see patients with ocular conditions ranging from diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma, and dry eyes. In particular, he developed a keen interest in the care of patients with Age-related macular degeneration (AMD). As AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over 50, Dr. Morgan realized that prevention is a key to limiting disease progression and has focused his efforts on treating and educating those with the disease as well as those at risk.
He has appeared on local television news programs to discuss genetic testing, nutritional supplementation, and new advancements in spectacle lens technology that limit harmful blue light exposure. He has contributed to industry publications, writing on the care of patients with AMD. In addition, he has shared the podium with top retinal specialists and AMD researchers to provide continuing education for fellow physicians on how to incorporate AMD care into clinical practice. In 2014, he sold Eye Tech and formed Blue Light Consulting LLC, a company dedicated to advancing innovation for the care of patients with, or at risk of AMD.
While continuing to practice part time, he traveled the country serving in a technical advisory capacity to ophthalmic industry enterprises focusing on spectacle lenses, nutraceuticals, telemedicine, and early disease detection. Although consulting allowed Dr. Morgan to connect with many doctors and their patients, the opportunity to move to Prescott was too much to resist! He looks forward to serving patients in our community. Dr. Morgan enjoys the outdoors, particularly hiking, golf, and motorcycling. He and his wife have two grown children and enjoy vacationing to see them. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Arizona Optometric Association.
