Dr. Isaac M. Bell
Dr. Bell grew up surrounded by apple and cherry orchards, on his family’s small farm in Central-Washington. After High School, he spent time working as a diesel mechanic, tire repair tech, electrician, and in an entomology lab, before re-discovering his childhood passion for vision. The next 8 years went quickly as he attended Yakima Valley Community College for his A.A. degree, and then Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon for his Bachelors and Doctorate degrees.
During his last year in university, he completed four internships, giving him extensive hands-on experience in primary eye care, ocular disease, contact lens, vision therapy, and low vision. In 2008, he was awarded the prestigious Eschenbach “Low Vision Student of the Year” award. After graduation, he spent the next 7 years honing his skills and serving our great country as a United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps Officer, stationed in Dillingham Alaska and then Toppenish, Washington. He served as the head of the optometry departments at both locations, caring for the local Native populations, while also serving as adjunct faculty for Pacific University College of Optometry as a preceptor for 4th year optometry students.
Dr. Bell is knowledgeable, down-to-earth, easy to talk with, and above all – caring. He’s been married to his high-school sweetheart, Cheryl, for 21 years. They have five wonderful children ranging in age from 3 – 16 years old. He enjoys helping people see their best, spending time with family, his faith in the Lord, hunting, fishing, and working with his hands.
