Dr. Donald A. Travis

Dr. Donald Travis grew up in a military family and moved quite often in his younger years.  He moved to the Tri Cities in 1981 where he pursued a career at Hanford as Nuclear Reactor Operator and eventually becoming a Certified Control Room operator at the N reactor.  Shortly after becoming certified, due to politics and some similarities with the Chernobyl reactor, the N reactor was shut down.  This brought Dr. Travis to a crossroads in his life.  Instead of leaving the area to work at another reactor, he opted to take advantage of a voluntary reduction of force and return to school in 1988.  The next year, he and his family of four moved to the Portland, Oregon area to further his education.  In 1990, Dr. Travis was accepted into Pacific University College of Optometry.  He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree magna cum laude in 1992 and his Doctor of Optometry with distinction in 1994.

Dr. Travis has been in practice in the Tri Cities since 1994.  He specializes in primary care Optometry with considerable experience with laser vision correction.  Dr. Travis is married with 4 children and 3 grandsons. In his free time he enjoys riding his Harley, bowling, hiking and learning to play the guitar.
