Dr. Nicholas Blight

Dr. Blight joined the EyeCare of Rigby team in 2018. He provides comprehensive eye care for patients of all ages. Dr. Blight was born and raised in Blackfoot, Idaho and graduated from Snake River High School. He attended college at Brigham Young University-Idaho where he studied studio art with a minor in health profession studies. After graduation, he completed his Doctor of Optometry degree at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove Oregon.

During his clinical rotations, Dr. Blight gained experience in a wide variety of practice modes. At the Veteran’s Affairs hospital in Spokane, Washington he gained skills and knowledge in diagnosis and management of ocular disease including glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and many other conditions.

Following his time at the VA, Dr. Blight completed an externship dedicated to vision therapy and rehabilitation. He worked with a wide range of patients, including children dealing with teaming, tracking and focusing vision problems; as well as patients suffering from post-concussive syndrome due to a traumatic brain injury. He then went on to spend a focused rotation on contact lens fitting and evaluation. He learned much about the diagnosis and treatment of irregular cornea and therapeutic specialty contact lenses.

Finally, Dr. Blight finished his clinical rotation experience at an Indian Health Clinic in Oklahoma, focused on primary eye care, with an emphasis on ocular disease. Having gained important skills, and grown as an eye care professional, Dr. Blight is excited to come home to Blackfoot and is prepared to serve his hometown community and provide the highest quality eye care.

Dr. Blight and his wife, Chelsie, have two beautiful and energetic children that keep them both busy. In his free time, he enjoys spending time outdoors involved in a variety of activities ranging from landscape painting, hiking, camping and exploring new locations and activities.

Dr. Blight is welcoming all patients and would appreciate the chance to take care of you and your family.
