Brandon J. Tibbitts, O.D.
Dr. Tibbits' Services Include:
Dr. Brandon Tibbitts completed his undergraduate degree in biochemistry at Brigham Young University and his Doctorate of Optometry at Southern College of Optometry. While in optometry school, he gained honors for excellent patient care. After graduation, Dr. Tibbitts completed a one-year residency at the VA Hospital in Memphis, TN where he received advanced training in ocular disease, management, and treatment. Dr. Tibbitts credits his VA training as some of the most valuable hands-on education he received as a doctor.
Dr. Tibbitts joined Rocky Mountain Eye Center’s rural services team to offer continuity of care and coordinated healthcare response for those with more complex care needs like diabetes, hypertension and other systemic disease that require more than just the attention of a primary care provider. Practicing as a rural eye care provider, Dr. Tibbitts enjoys being able to practice eye care to the fullest extent of his training knowing that he and his patients are working toward the success of their long-term health.
While serving rural communities, Dr. Tibbitts regularly addresses routine eye care, but his true passion lies in helping patients who struggle with dry eyes, corneal disease like keratoconus, and those in need of specialty contact lens fittings. He also enjoys focusing on surgical co-management for cataracts, glaucoma, LASIK, ocular surface and lid, retina and vitreous patients.
Dr. Tibbitts is a member of:
- Colorado Optometric Association
- American Optometric Association
Southern Colorado not only gives Dr. Tibbitts a beautiful place to live, it also serves as good middle ground between his extended family in Utah and Texas. Coming from a large metropolitan, he particularly enjoys Colorado’s wide open spaces, friendly neighbors and close-knit mountain communities.
He is a supportive husband and loving father to five active children. He takes no greater joy than family life; helping with house duties, assisting with school work, attending performances or sporting events, church activities, and yes, occasionally sleeping. You might even find him teaching school science clubs about wonders of the eye.
Dr. Tibbitts loves hiking, and if he had no other responsibilities, you would find him lying next to a mountain river looking up at the sky. The woods, nature, and visiting places he has never been are common conversations with his patients as they compare notes for their next adventure.
