Dr. Chris Roghair
I was born and raised in the small town of Richland Center, WI. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. Afterward, I graduated summa cum laude from the Illinois College of Optometry (ICO) in Chicago.
At ICO, I completed clinical rotations in ocular disease, contact lenses, low vision rehabilitation, pediatric optometry, and primary care optometry. I pride myself in providing thorough, personalized care to patients of all ages and backgrounds – from infants to older adults.
I am a member of the Minnesota Optometric Association, American Optometric Association, and Vision Optometric Services to Humanity International (VOSH). During optometry school, I traveled on mission trips to Oaxaca, Mexico and Chiquimula, Guatemala. Volunteering and community service are very important to me and I look forward to getting involved in Rogers, St. Michael, and the surrounding area.
Outside of clinic, I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, Ellyn, and our two cats Kix and Curly. I also enjoy being active outdoors – playing sports, running, biking, and hiking.
Here are a few fun facts about me:
- I am a huge soccer fan! I especially enjoy following the United States National Team and Minnesota United (Go Loons!).
- Being from Wisconsin, I enjoy many of the things my state does well: beer, cheese, and the Green Bay Packers! I look forward to exploring new restaurants and breweries in the area to find a taste of home!
- I like to dabble in cooking but am still not very good – any tips or recipes are always appreciated!
