Doctor Miranda Cannon and Doctor Mark Cannon are from Indiana. They moved to Washington State right after graduating from optometry school in 2010. Some say folks from the Midwest 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. Miranda and Dr. Mark.
Miranda Cannon, OD grew up in suburban Indianapolis. She graduated with honors from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis with a bachelor degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. Dr. Miranda then attended Indiana University’s School of Optometry in Bloomington, Indiana. 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. After working in a Sam’s Club Optical for a few months she began practicing at the McChord Air Force Base’s Optometry center late in 2010. In 2015 she opened Cannon EyeCare in Seattle with her husband, Mark Cannon, OD. In April 2017 Dr. Miranda Cannon took over as owner of McChord Optometry at the McChord Main Exchange, McChord AFB, Washington. When Dr. Miranda is not busy working at the two family businesses or caring for their two daughters, she enjoys travel and hiking in the Pacific NorthWest with her Australian Shepherd, Raina.
Mark J. Cannon, OD was raised in Northwest Indiana, very near Chicago. He attended Indiana University in Bloomington and graduated with a bachelor degree in biology and psychology. Between undergrad and optometry school, Mark worked as a fisheries biologist in Alaska with the National Marine Fisheries Service. He then worked 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 with VOSH – Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity - and he started an optometry school cycling team that raised thousands of dollars for charity. Dr. Mark was also honored with a Dean Scholar’s Award that led to years of ophthalmic research while in school. He 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 three-doctor medical group practice South of Seattle. In April 2017, he started working every other Saturday at McChord Optometry.
