Jeff Jeffers is a member of Lions District Wyoming 15 and has been a Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank board member since 2014.
His credentials include American Board of Opticianry (ABO), JCOHPO Certified Surgical Assistant, National Contact Lens Exam, Certified Ophthalmic Technologist, and Certified Retinal Angiographer.
He has a long career working in the ophthalmic field in many capacities. For many years, he owned his own ophthalmic diagnostic lab where we performed A-scan and B-scan IOL calculations, corneal endothelial photography with cell count, fitting contact lenses over diseased corneas, and new corneal transplants as wells as fluorescein angiography and ophthalmic photography.
He and his wife moved back to Cheyenne, Wyoming after living in California for 36 years where they raised their family. He enjoys shooting sports, square dancing, and disc golf. In addition, he is presently involved in a non-profit, High Plains Railroad Restoration, that is restoring a late 1800s era caboose #2516; an1887 Pullman car, #57; and a 1954 British double-decker bus. I became a Lion in the Cheyenne Sunrise Lions Club in 2011 and through a talk at our club given by Janelle Lewis, became interested in the Eye Bank. In 2011, I completed training to be a field recovery tech for RMLEB and I have worked throughout the State of Wyoming since.
