About Our Doctor
Dr. Gregory Gordon grew up in Bristow and graduated from Perry Central High School in 1976. He went to Indiana University in Bloomington and then transferred to Indiana State, where he met his wife, Kim.
Dr. Gordon has been in the family practice of optometry for more than 36 years. After graduating from IU School of Optometry in 1985, he started his practice right away and opened a clinic in a strip mall. In 1990, he built a new office off busy US-231 and continued his practice in the area.
In his search for a new location, Dr. Gordon traveled to nearby states and looked for a place that feels like home. What he wanted was a rural area with rolling hills where he could also hunt and fish. One day, he had an epiphany and considered going back home. He finally settled in Jasper, which is about 30 minutes away from where he grew up.
An avid outdoorsman, Dr. Gordon loves to hunt and fish. He is also passionate about horses and has been around them his entire life. He enjoys the daily upkeep of a horse farm in the country a few miles from Jasper. Photography is another one of his passions. In fact, he has taken thousands of photos through the years.
Dr. Gordon is also a writer and has had several books published. His newest book, 57 Faith: Stories for Brushing Up Your Faith, has been sent off to press. He gets many opportunities to speak in churches of all denominations and provides motivational talks at clubs, high schools, banquets, and other gatherings.
Dr. Gordon’s writing career has taken him to drive backstage with the Reverend Billy Graham in California to having lunch with Colin Powel in Louisville. He has held chapel for the IU Hoosiers prior to game on numerous occasions. The actor Charlton Heston wrote Gordon telling him he read Gordon’s children’s book to his own grandson and wrote a blurb for it:
Life in a Nutshell is a charming story and is beautifully illustrated.
