About Us

Our History

Eye Consultants was founded in 1980, and for over three decades, our team has provided patients with exceptional ophthalmology services. Eye Consultants is recognized as the Inland Northwest’s premier eye care provider thanks to our dedication to patient care, use of the latest technology, and industry leading doctors. Our practice is led by ophthalmologist Dr. Gary Fillmore, who is known throughout the industry for his cataract surgery and LASIK procedures. In addition to vision surgeries, we also offer general optometric care, providing patients with eye exams, eyeglasses, and contact lenses, as well as treatments for diseases like dry eye and glaucoma. We’re based out of Spokane, WA, but patients travel to us from all across the country.

Eye Consultants opened Eye Tech, a state-of-the-art surgical suite for custom LASIK and PRK in 2001, and soon became the highest volume LASIK center in the Inland Northwest. Renowned for the highest quality of patient care and a standard of excellence, the EyeTech Laser Center has treated patients from all over the globe. Patients as far away as Germany, Ukraine, Costa Rica, and Ireland have all traveled far and wide to have their LASIK procedures done at Eye Consultants & the EyeTech Laser Center! Even one of the VISX laser engineers flew his wife up from Utah to have her LASIK procedure performed at Eye Consultants because of our experience, compassionate patient care, and unsurpassed surgical outcomes.

That being said, the majority of our patients may not be flying in to see us, but we are lucky enough to serve our regional patients who reside hundreds of miles and hours away from us. These places range from as near as Coeur d’Alene, ID, Moses Lake and Colville, WA and reaching even further out to our friends in Helena, MT, Tri-Cities, WA, and British Columbia, Canada! In 2008, Dr. Gary Fillmore took ownership of Eye Consultants & the EyeTech Laser Center and continues that commitment to clinical and surgical excellence. Dr. Fillmore brought valuable experience gained as a surgeon with the highly regarded Warfighter Refractive Eye Surgery Program while serving as an officer in the United States Army. We are not a nationwide retail LASIK chain where patients are numbers; each patient is important to us.

Refractive surgery is an exciting and life-changing experience, and our doctors and staff at Eye Consultants will go that extra step to make your experience easy, painless, and most importantly a surgical success! Truly, at Eye Consultants, your best vision is our only focus.
