Dr. Maria VanNurden received her optometry degree from the Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon. She went on to get a Master’s degree in Clinical Optometry in order to teach others. Because of this, she is not only very knowledgeable in her chosen profession, but also provides expert in-house training for our technicians.
Maria truly enjoys one-on-one interactions with her patients. Her focus is on primary eye care services for the entire family, with an emphasis on disease and disease management. She is also an expert in difficult or custom contact lens fittings and specialty lenses. She provides eye exams, fits contact lenses and glasses, and has the support of her associates in ophthalmology and sub-specialties for consultation and referral. She also works closely with the surgeons here at Cascadia Eye, providing post-operative care for their patients. With over 16 years’ experience, Dr. VanNurden’s knowledge and service skills have served her well, and she credits her success to staff training and utilizing a team approach to eye care.
Dr. VanNurden loves animals and has been involved as an animal advocate. She is also a music enthusiast, enjoying everything from opera to dubstep, as well as being an accomplished musician in her own right – her talent with the French horn earned her a scholarship in college.
