Doctors & Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Bryden Family Vision a proud provider of vision care products and services in Lewiston.


Jason Ritter, O.D.

Dr. Ritter is a 3rd generation Idahoan. He completed a bachelors degree in psychology at the University of Idaho before deciding to become an optometrist. After graduation Dr. Ritter spent time trying out several blue collar jobs and quickly realized he needed more of a challenge. Reflecting on his fathers earlier desire to become an optometrist, he decided he would go back to school and become an eye doctor. He went back to Moscow and took pre-requisites for optometry school and then received his Doctor of Optometry degree at Pacific University in 2014. After graduation, he found his dream job opportunity as a business owner and he purchased Bryden Family Vision.

In his 3rd year at Pacific, Dr. Ritter met his future wife and they were married just 2 months after they met! They have two sons, their eldest affectionately named Bon Scott Ritter (after the lead singer of Dr. Ritters favorite band AC/DC) a daughter, Wren and their youngest just born in 2017, Jack.

He enjoys spending time with his family at home, but also loves getting out and visiting different parts of his beautiful native Idaho. He enjoys golfing, white water rafting and downhill skiing.
