Dr. Mark Pyle
As befits a six-year Navy veteran, Dr. Mark Pyle has lived on both coasts and several points in between. He finished his undergraduate degree at Purdue University in Indiana and graduated in 2009 with an O.D. degree from the New England College of Optometry in Boston.
Dr. Pyle practiced optometry in Clarkston and Pullman in eastern Washington before relocating to Bellingham and Vision Plus. He says, “Optometry has allowed me to interact with patients in a primary care setting. It is highly rewarding to help people meet their visual needs, but also to educate patients on the relationship between vision and systemic disease.” In his spare time, Dr. Pyle enjoys films, reading, tennis, NCAA Football, AND Basketball – and fly-fishing, though not at the college level.

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listens to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
