Gary Morgan, OD

gary morganBorn in Chicago, Dr Morgan grew up in Elgin, Illinois. After receiving a degree in biology from Northern Illinois University in 1988, he received his doctorate from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1992. He and his wife Susan moved to Arizona in 1993 and Dr Morgan practiced with a large multispecialty ophthalmology clinic in Sun City, while simultaneously opening his private practice in Peoria. Dr. Morgan moved full-time into his private practice in 1998 and went through two expansions, culminating in a large facility with three associate doctors and a large staff.

In 2006, Dr. Morgan became acquainted with the emerging science behind carotenoids in the eye. This led to an epiphany; instead of watching patients with Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) lose vision, it was possible to care for them in a way that preserves vision. Studying research and the latest technology, Dr Morgan implemented advanced diagnostic instruments, nutraceuticals, genetic testing, and spectacle lens protection into the care of patients with AMD and those at risk of the disease. In the ensuing years, he provided informational seminars on AMD for patients. He designed and presented continuing education lectures for doctors on topics ranging from pathogenesis, prevention, monitoring, and treatment of AMD. He authored articles for mainstream media and professional journals and appeared on television and radio programs to discuss various aspects of AMD prevention and care. He also served as a technical and media consultant for the largest vision insurer in the world.

After selling the practice in 2014, Dr. Morgan still remained committed to part-time patient care while providing consultative services through his company, Blue Light Consulting. In 2019, he and Susan moved to Prescott where he returned to full-time patient care.
