Although state regulations say he doesn’t have to, Dr. Annis spends over 250 hours each year studying new and better ways to care for his patients. These include many medically-related procedures and treatments patients commonly need.
It’s security to know that our decisions and advice are based on the best that training and years of experience can offer. The very best and the very latest – for you.
Dr. Annis grew up in Belmont, Michigan (near Grand Rapids). He attended Rockford High School and graduated with honors. He graduated with honors from Calvin College (Grand Rapids) in 1980. He did his optometry training at Illinois College of Optometry from 1982-86, where he graduated first in his class and received a number of honors, including Michigan Student of the Year, the first time this award was presented to a student attending out-of-state.
He presently holds memberships in the West Michigan Optometric Association (WMOA) and the American Optometric Association (AOA). Dr. Annis married Dianna in 1979 and they had the pleasure of bringing three handsome young men into the world (their looks come from Dianna’s side, for which everyone is thankful). Dianna has since relocated to her new home in Heaven.
In God’s due time, along came one who rekindled a flame he thought was out forever. He and Lynn were married in 2023 after a lengthy engagement of two months, which might seem unusually quick were it not for the fact that they actually met a full one month before the engagement. They are not planning on many children.
He would enjoy nothing better than getting the chance to introduce you to all the exciting and amazing ways of enriching your vision. He wants it to be a sense that serves you at its best for the rest of your life!
