Hoosier Optometrist ?
Both Dr. Mark and Dr. Miranda are from Indiana, and moved to Seattle right after graduating from optometry school. Some say folks from the Midwest tend to have a certain kind of personality that makes them easy to get along with. We look forward to meeting you, and do hope you’ll enjoy our Midwestern hospitality. Read on below to learn more about Dr. Mark and Dr. Miranda.
Dr. Mark J. Cannon, OD
Dr. Mark J. Cannon was raised in Northwest Indiana, very near Chicago. He attended Indiana University in Bloomington and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biology and Psychology.
Between undergrad and optometry school, Dr. Mark worked as a fisheries biologist in Alaska with the National Marine Fisheries Service, as a backpacking guide for troubled teens in Utah, and as a microbiologist at Baxter pharmaceuticals.
He then attended Indiana University’s School of Optometry. During school, he served on mission trips to Guanajuato, Mexico and started a school cycling team that raised thousands of dollars for charity. He was also honored with a Dean Scholar’s Award that led to years of ophthalmic research while in school.
Dr. Mark J. Cannon has worked in a number of practices since moving to Seattle, and has gravitated toward full scope medical optometry. He spent a year as the staff optometrist in an ophthalmology practice in Kirkland, WA and three years in a 3-doctor medical group practice south of Seattle.
Dr. Miranda Cannon, OD
Dr. Miranda Cannon was born in central Indiana. She graduated with honors from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis with a Bachelor degree in Biology.
Dr. Miranda then attended the Indiana University School of Optometry in Bloomington. During her time there, she enjoyed volunteering her services on yearly mission trips to Guanajuato, Mexico.
Dr. Miranda also completed externships in Ocular Disease at two VA hospitals on the East coast. Shortly after graduating from optometry school, she moved to Seattle and has been practicing at the McChord Air Force Base prior to opening Cannon EyeCare. She is excited that her new office is so much closer to home. She now works at both practices part time every week.
