We are extremely excited to announce the addition of a new optometrist to the team at Binyon Vision Center. Dr. Patrick Squires will start seeing patients on April 24th and have availability on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Dr. Squires grew up in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Optometry with honors. He has spent most of his career working in community health clinics in Seattle. Dr. Squires helped establish a diabetic clinic for the Puget Sound Neighborhood Health Clinics, where he did retinal screenings. He volunteered with UW Faculty and medical students, “Sight Savers”, and local health fairs including Seamar’s Latina Health Fair. He was also a past director and a volunteer at the Millionair Club Eye Clinic in Seattle.
Dr. Squires’ wife is from Glasgow. While pursuing her, he spent four years working abroad in Germany and Scotland. During his time in Germany, Dr. Squires set up contact lens clinics as a civilian for the Department of Defense.
Dr. Squires’ son attends Fairhaven Middle School, and his wife is an Occupational Therapist for the Opportunity Council. In his free time, Dr. Squires travels the I-5 corridor driving his son to his next soccer match. Being an avid baseball fan, he is a season ticket holder to the Everett Aquasox, and frequently attends Bellingham Bells games. Dr. Squires considers himself fortunate to have worked with many exceptional clinicians, and caring individuals, throughout his career. He has great respect for Dr. McEathron and is excited to join Dr. LeClaire and Binyon Vision Center.
Dr. McEathron will be working two days a week in June and on Wednesdays in July until he hangs up his ophthalmoscope- except for occasional vacation fill-in for the other doctors! We wish him all the best in his retirement.
