A small introduction

About Us

A longstanding tradition of excellence

Eye Physicians & Surgeons opened over 50 years ago in 1959. We are dedicated to providing high-quality vision care along with a genuine, neighborly concern for patients’ well-being. We moved to our current 6,500 square foot location in 1963 and added a fully accredited outpatient surgery center in 1986. The Billings Cataract & Laser Surgicenter is certified by Medicare and licensed by the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

Today our staff consists of Ophthalmologist- Dr. George F. Hatch Jr., Diseases & Surgery of the Vitreous, Retina and Macula specialist- Dr. David W. Switzer Jr., and several registered nurses, opticians, and technicians who have been with the practice for many years. Everyone continues to follow the same practice philosophy that was set forth back in 1959- of providing exceptional vision care.

State-of-the-art eye exams

We use innovative diagnostic equipment to diagnose eye disease or other abnormalities early, often before they present any symptoms. Early detection means early treatment, which is the best way to preserve your vision and reduce severe complications that can occur. We were the first ophthalmology practice in the area to offer fluorescein angiography and fundus photography. Our other capabilities include Humphrey visual field exam, optical coherence tomography (OCT), ophthalmic biometry, and ultrasound A & B scans. Once your eye exam is complete, your test results will be thoroughly explained so you have a complete understanding of your current eye health and vision needs.

Advanced treatment for eye disease

Dr. Hatch and Dr. Switzer make a point of staying at the forefront of their field to bring you today’s most advanced treatment methods for a whole host of conditions. Your sight has helped you accumulate a lifetime of memories in visual form, making it a gift that is unlike any other. When all is well with our vision, we take it for granted. But when our vision is affected, we suddenly realize how precious sight really is. That’s where Eye Physicians & Surgeons can help. We are the trusted choice of many area physicians- including other eye doctors- for patients’ vision needs. Our comprehensive capabilities include state-of-the-art vision testing, medical and surgical management of eye disease and injury, and a full- service optical department.

We pride ourselves on providing you with the utmost personalized care. Your appointments will be unhurried and informative, and our eye doctors and staff will treat you with the kindness, respect and compassion that you want and deserve.
