Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Riemer Eyecare the leading provider of vision care products and services in Portland.

Randall J Riemer, OD

Dr. Randall Riemer has had a passion for eye care most of his life. His personal struggle with a lazy eye introduced him to the field of optometry at the age of five. He later took the advice of his Great Aunt Martha to seek a career in optometry during a career class in 9th grade. At that point, he committed himself to an education that would allow him to serve the eye care needs of those around him.

After graduating from Ludington High School, he went on to complete both his undergraduate and graduate studies at Ferris State University, which houses the prestigious Michigan College of Optometry. In 1984 he graduated, with High Honors, earning his Doctor of Optometry Degree. Dr Riemer then spent six years in Grand Rapids honing his skill as a contact lens specialist before moving to Portland in 1990.

Since then, he has continued to commit significant time for additional training and education to become an expert in other areas, such as the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, child eye care, and Computer Vision Syndrome.

He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the Michigan Optometric Association, the nationally recognized Vision Source! Group, and the Portland Area Chamber of Commerce.

The only things more important to Dr. Riemer are living for Jesus Christ, and serving his family, which includes his wife, Cheri, and son, Cameron.
