I received my Doctorate of Optometry from Ferris State University in 2017 and completed three externships at Cherry Health in Grand Rapids, MI, Wyoming VA Health Care Center in Wyoming, MI, and Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. I have been practicing optometry in the Upper Peninsula since 2017. I am trained in refractive procedures as well as diagnosis and management of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. I can also evaluate and fit specialty contact lenses. I had 10 years of optical experience as an optician before becoming a licensed optometrist. I take pride in working with people to achieve the best possible vision and ocular health.

I grew up in Luther, MI and enjoy hobbies such as bicycling, hiking, skiing, and spending time with my wife and daughter. My wife, Stephanie, and I moved to Sault Sainte Marie in 2017. Stephanie is a pharmacist that practices primarily in Newberry, MI.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you out!

Thomas Choponis, O.D.
