Welcome Dr. Mark Cannon
We are very happy to announce that Dr. Mark Cannon will be joining us!
Dr. Cannon grew up in the Midwest, very near Chicago. He has already had five careers – as a research scientist, a fisheries biologist, a backpacking guide for troubled teens, and a microbiologist – and has found his calling in optometry. These varied experiences allow him to connect and empathize with patients from many walks of life. Dr. Cannon cares about the whole person, not just their eyeballs.
He moved to Seattle with his wife – Dr. Miranda Cannon – upon earning his doctorate in optometry from the Indiana University’s School of Optometry. They chose Seattle because they loved the combination of mountains, ocean, and our world-class city. They go hiking and backpacking when time allows with their two young daughters and Australian Shepherd in tow. He is also an avid cyclist, and rides to work almost every day.
Dr. Cannon loves to practice optometry because he gets to help patients all day long by solving vision problems for them. He is well versed in medical management of ocular conditions and has a special interest in ocular surface disease (dry eye syndrome).
