Dr. Andrew Royer
Andrew Royer is from Good Hope, IL, a small town, in West Central Illinois. After graduating from Northwestern High School, he attended Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on a baseball scholarship then transferred to Western Illinois University to finish his undergraduate studies. In 2005, Andrew graduated with honors from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN earning his Doctor of Optometry degree.
Dr. Royer joined our Ophthalmology Associates family as an Associate Doctor in 2014. His training and experience in a number of clinical settings such as: V.A. Medical Center, Corporate Optometry (i.e. Doctor’s Vision Works), and Owner of a Private Optometry Practice specializing in Dry Eye and Contact Lenses was a perfect fit for our patient centered practice.
Dr. Royer is our in-office Contact Lens Specialist, specializing in Multifocal Contact Lenses, hard to fit Keratoconus and Post-Graft cases. Dr. Royer also actively diagnoses and treats patients with Glaucoma, Cataracts, Dry Eye Disease, Allergic Conjunctivitis, Diabetic Retinopathy, Fuch’s Corneal Endothelial Dystrophy and Macular Degeneration to name a few.
Despite a busy clinical practice, Dr. Royer is honored to have participated as a Sub-Clinical Investigator in over 30 F.D.A. Clinical Research Trials testing new pharmaceutical agents and devices for the treatment of Dry Eye Disease, Allergic Conjunctivitis, Anterior Uveitis and Glaucoma.
Personally, Dr. Royer is happily married to Christina Royer and have three children. Andrew and Christina enjoy and are very involved in their community, local school district PTO and have been known to coach a few youth soccer and baseball teams. Dr. Royer’s favorite hobby is spending time with his family. He also enjoys golf, hiking, hunting and a newly found hobby of jeeping.
