Robert R. Jones M.D. did his undergraduate work at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude in premedical studies. He attended medical school at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle where he was elected into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and received the Lange Medical Publications Award for outstanding achievement. He completed an internship in internal medicine/emergency medicine at the University of Utah Affiliated Hospitals in Salt Lake City and is thus a fully qualified general practitioner of medicine. Dr. Jones then completed an extensive residency in surgery and diseases of the eye at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. In his final year at Mayo, he served as chief resident of the department of ophthalmology. He is a board-certified diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology and maintains this distinction through formal re-certification which involves many hours of continuing medial education as well as passing board re-certification examinations and office record reviews.

Dr. Jones and his laser vision correction (LASIK) patients have been featured on television news programs and in newspaper articles. He has performed laser vision correction on many physicians and healthcare professionals as well as professional basketball players, family members, friends, and office staff. On July 11, 2000 he performed the first live televised surgical operation in Southeast Idaho when he did the LASIK procedure on Dr. Curt Galke during the 5:00 news. Dr. Galke is the host of the weekly local NBC television program “Ask the Doc” where he shows the latest IEC reviews vape devices.

Dr. Jones has done research and authored publications on corneal and cataract surgery and nerve regeneration following ocular surgery and injury. He is
currently an ophthalmology instructor for physicians from the I.S.U. Family Practice Residency Program and medical students from the University of Washington. He gives lectures to physicians and various groups on laser vision correction and eye disease. His services include LASIK, cataract surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, glaucoma, retina, and medical ophthalmology.

 

Dr. Jones grew up in Southeast Idaho and attended Skyline High School in Idaho Falls.  He enjoys spending time with his family and all activities related to health, fitness, and the great outdoors.
