Dr. Winters

Dr. WintersBenjamin C. Winters, O.D., received his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University and then graduated from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN as one of the top 10 practitioners in his class.  From a very young age Dr. Winters had an interest in the field of optometry, but it was not until optometry school that he discovered his passion for vision therapy.  Dr. Carol Scott, a giant in the discipline of vision therapy, lectured to Dr. Winters’ class in his first year of optometry school.  She spoke of children who were struggling academically and shared what a marvelous transformation vision therapy was making in each child’s life.  This sparked an interest in Dr. Winters that led him to pursue more knowledge and training in the field of optometry.  The more he learned the more he gained a passion and love for vision therapy.  This desire to change children’s lives for the better  led to the opening of Washington Vision Therapy Center.

Dr. Winters continues to engage with the discipline of vision therapy and has logged over 100 hours of additional training in the area of learning related vision problems that impact children and adults, acquired brain injuries, developmental delays, strabismus, and amblyopia.  Dr. Winters is part of the national InfantSee program, which provides free eye exams for children under 1 years of age.  

Dr. Winters has been married for over ten years to his beautiful wife Mamie.  They have four adorable children and Dr. Winters spends every moment he can with them.  Dr. Winters is a native of Washington State and is happy to be a part of the Yakima community.
