SEARHC hires Richard McMaster to start POW eye clinic

The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium recently hired optometrist Richard McMaster to start a new eye clinic on Prince of Wales Island.

McMaster comes to SEARHC from Lewiston, Mont., where he has been in private practice for 19 years. McMaster is in the process of selling his practice in Montana and SEARHC is in the process of renovating a permanent office for the new POW eye clinic. He will move to POW once he sells his practice. For now, McMaster will make one-week visits to POW about every month or two. McMaster will see his first POW patients Sept. 19-23, when he will hold an eye clinic at the Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock. He is in the process of scheduling additional POW clinics in November and December.

McMaster earned a Bachelor of Science degree in medical technology from the University of Montana in Missoula. He earned his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Ore. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Montana Optometric Association. He owns All Family Vision Care in Lewiston, Mont.

McMaster’s medical interests include glaucoma management, retinal disease and treating ocular injuries.
