About Clifford E. Myers, M.D.
Dr. Myers is a Peoria native. He attended Peoria Public Schools and graduated from Richwoods High School. He attended college and medical school at Northwestern University in the Honors Program. His further training after medical school included an internship in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and three years of training in eye diseases and surgery in Dallas, Texas. He was Board Certified in Ophthalmology in 1983 by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
He returned to Peoria in the early 1980s to start a private practice of ophthalmology with the goal of serving the people of central Illinois. His medical and surgical practice included most aspects of the medical/surgical care of eye diseases.
Dr. Myers has always been dedicated to the notion that your doctor should put your needs and care first. This is our primary mission as an independent solo practice. We are confident you will see this in the delivery of your care.
Although many surgical and medical services in ophthalmology are best served by sub-specialists now available in the field, an experienced general ophthalmologist can help guide you to the right doctor for your special condition. Dr. Myers is dedicated to continuing and expanding his medical knowledge. He has been recognized by the AMA for Special Commendation for his continuing medical education efforts in excess of legal requirements continuously since 2008. He has been recognized by the American Academy of Ophthalmology since 2008 for the “Lifetime Education of the Ophthalmologists” program.
Dr. Myers and his wife have raised their family in Peoria. He has been active in professional affairs, serving as president of the Peoria Medical Society and Proctor Hospital, and also on numerous committees to help improve the medical environment in central Illinois and the state. He has been active as a leader in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and the swimming community and supported numerous civic, religious, and charitable organizations locally.
