Meet the Optometrist

Dr.KJn316EC-300x300.jpgDr. Krebsbach received his bachelor’s degree from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Then he went on to earn his doctorate degree from Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon. He was one of three graduates from his class to receive a Teaching Fellow and spent the next five years engaged in academia at Pacific University College of Optometry. His academic responsibilities included teaching the low vision class (providing vision care for those who are legally blind), teaching the ocular anatomy lab, advising students in the General Optometry Clinic, and was director of the Low Vision Clinic.

While teaching at Pacific University college of Optometry, Dr. Krebsbach worked part-time as an optometric physician in a private practice setting. His love for private practice, especially interacting with patients, eventually led him to full time private practice. Today he practices as an optometric physician at the highest level allowed in the state of Oregon. He is licensed to utilize both oral and topical diagnostic and therapeutic pharmaceutical agents. Dr. Krebsbach is also equipped to handle ocular emergencies, such as foreign body removal or other needed services and procedures.

Dr. Krebsbach has a very close working relationship with local surgeons and regularly co-manages both cataract surgeries and LASIK surgeries. Patients have consistently responded very positively to their surgical experiences. Many of these patients have referred their friends or family members that needed similar care. Dr. Krebsbach is a Vision Source optometric physician , and one of the only doctors in the area that is providing eye health therapy utilizing BEMER technology, which increases the vascular curculation by up to 30% in many individuals. This increased circulation enables the patient’s body to heal itself when experiencing complications from cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eyes, and symptoms related to diabetes. In some cases, the healing process is significant enough to eliminate the need for surgery, and other conventinal treatments.

Dr. Krebsbach has been married to his wife, Pam, for 43 years, has four children and nine grandchildren. When he’s not spending time with his family, he enjoys basketball, guitar, outdoor activities, and church responsibilities. He went back to school to earn a Masters Degree in Pastoral Ministry as part of the prerequisites to become an deacon, and was ordained as a deacon in the Roman Catholic Church on October 26,2013. One of his greatest joys as a deacon was baptizing two of his grandchild, John Paul, and Hudson.

Dr. Krebsbach hopes to continue serving the vision and eye health needs of the community for years to come. Call 503-648-2020 to schedule an appointment.
