    Dr. Jay Borgholthaus, an optometrist in Pocatello and Butte provides comprehensive eye care and vision services. Dr. Borgholthaus attended Brigham Young University in Provo, then was accepted to Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon where he received his bachelors in vision science and his doctorate of optometry in 1991.

    Upon graduation, he served for 3 years in the United States Air Force as an optometrist at Holloman AFB, New Mexico. The hospital setting allowed him to work with other health care providers on a daily basis and included emergency room consultations.

    Following his honorable release from the Air Force, r. Borgholthaus moved back to his home state of Idaho and practiced as an eye doctor at Shopko Eyecare for over 18 years in Pocatello before joining Summit Eyecare. Dr. Borgholthaus has seen thousands of patients managing their vision as well as eye diseases. He has aided and co-managed hundreds of cataract and LASIK surgery patients. 

    'Dr. B,' as he is sometimes referred to, enjoys helping patients see more clearly with contact lenses. He takes great care in helping those patients who have had difficulty wearing contact lenses and turning it into a comfortable, clear vision experience.

    He has been a member of the American Optometric Association for over 15 years and is active in his local South East Idaho district.

    Dr. Borgholthaus has served in his community and church in the Pocatello and Chubbuck area since his arrival. He is a father of 3 boys and a daughter-in-law.  He enjoys hiking, golf, riding 4 wheelers in the mountains and vacationing in McCall with his family.
