The Three "O's" of Eye Care

Ophthalmologist, Optometrist and Opticians working together under one roof. We are proud of our commitment to proving a team approach to eye care. Together with nurses, technicians and support staff, the three "O"s of Helena Eye Clinic help to provide you with a Vision of Health.

Dr. Craig L Wilkerson, Ophthalmologist

Dr. Craig L Wilkerson.

Dr. Wilkerson is a medical doctor who has received specialty training in surgery, diagnosis and management of disorders of the eye. Although ophthalmologists focus on the eye, Dr. Wilkerson understands that the eyes work in coordination with other parts of the body. His medical  training and years of experience allow him to recognize, detect, and treat many health related conditions.  Dr. Wilkerson proves excellent in coordination of  patient care with primary care physicians.

Dr. Wilkerson specializes in treatment of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, eye injuries, and many other  acute and chronic eye conditions.

Dr. Wilkerson is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Montana Academy of Ophthalmology, where he served as President, Montana Medical Association, The Rotary Club, and the Helena Area Chamber of Commerce. He has participated in medical mission work in Africa and performed voluntary eye surgery in Central America.
