James M. Miller, OD

James M Miller OD

Dr. James Miller attended Cedarville University prior to graduating summa cum laude from The Ohio State University College of Optometry in 2006. While he was interested in pursuing a degree in the medical field, his brother's (Dr. Robert Miller) influence led him to narrow that pursuit to optometry. He really enjoys being able to use his optometric degree help people of all ages in a tangible way on a day-to-day basis.

The relatively family-friendly nature of an optometric practice schedule is an extra benefit for Dr. Miller since he and his wife, Natasha, have four young daughters. They currently reside in Sugarcreek and are active members at Grace Mennonite Church in Berlin.

Dr. Miller enjoys spending time with his young family as well as watching—and playing—sports as time allows.
