Dr. Roslyn Howell received her Doctor of Optometry degree (OD), with honors, from Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, OR. She completed her residency at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, concentrating on ocular disease but with experience in all facets of optometry. At that time, she also had sole responsibility for emergency room (ER) calls from Cherokee Nation Hastings Hospital every month. Previously, she completed an ocular disease rotation at Spokane Veterans Affairs, gaining experience in geriatric care, particularly macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic care. She was awarded the VSP Scholarship for Excellence in Primary Care in 2013, and she was a member of the optometric honors society throughout her optometry education.
Her years of experience in fitting soft, gas-permeable, and specialty contact lenses (including teaching contact lens fitting to optometric students), as well as her concentration in managing ocular disease provide Dr. Howell with a well-rounded knowledge base that makes her an ideal fit at Cascadia Eye, which is dedicated to addressing every aspect of vision care. She sees patients for routine, contact lens, and medical eye exams in our Mount Vernon, Stanwood, and Anacortes locations.
Originally from Victoria, BC, Dr. Howell enjoys hiking, skiing, and kayaking in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and her dog. She actively participates in optometry humanitarian missions, and she has visited Ghana and Thailand through VOSH and Unite for Sight as part of her lifetime commitment to service.
