Dr. Tony Turin OD, FAAO
My name is Tony Turin and I was born and raised in Welches, Oregon, and graduated from Sandy High School in 2002. After high school, I completed a Bachelors’s degree and a Doctorate degree in Optometry from Pacific University. Shortly after graduating in 2010, I was directly commissioned as a Captain in the US Army. Most of my military commitment was spent working at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. During this time, I worked as the Chief of Optometry at Womack Army Medical Clinic, I covered on-call in the emergency department, and I evaluated more patients than any Optometrist in the area. In 2013, I became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, something only ten percent of optometrists achieve. I have also gone on to complete my Masters in Business Administration. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 14 years and have two amazing kids. I am still so excited to be back in my hometown and serving the people of the Mt. Hood area! Please make us your hometown choice for all your vision and eye care needs.

Catherine started her career as an Optician in 1989 at a private optometric practice in California where she grew up. She enjoyed learning all aspects of the office, from patient welcoming to technician, to running the In-house lab where they would do their own edging of lenses.
In 1992, she and her husband moved to Montana where she spent some time working in a full-scale, nationwide optical laboratory. She feels her experience in both the office and laboratory gives her a well-rounded array of knowledge that helps her as an optician. While in Montana, Catherine became certified with the American Board of Opticianry.
Moving to Oregon in 1999, Catherine has since worked as an optician at two other offices in the Portland area, as well as another nationwide full-service lab as their final inspector.
Joining the Mt Hood Eye Care team in 2017, she is so excited to be back in a smaller, family-oriented office. She truly enjoys giving our patients quality eyewear education throughout their ordering experience, so that each patient can make a well-informed decision on their eyewear investment to receive the best vision possible. Catherine really enjoys the challenge of adjusting misshaped glasses, so don’t think it’s hopeless until you bring her the challenge of repairing it!
Catherine loves to spend time with her husband of 30 years. She has 3 grown children and looks forward to being a Grandma… someday. In her free time, Catherine enjoys cycling, reading, and playing the piano for Logan Community Church where her husband is Pastor.
Ashley was born and raised in Oregon, specifically in the Brightwood/ Sandy area. Ashley started in September of 2021 and has been in the medical field for quite some time. She has worked in multiple different specialties, but optometry is becoming a quick favorite. Outside of work, she likes to go to the park with her dog Buckley, play up in the snow on foot, by board, or in a vehicle. She also enjoys Hiking, Fishing, and Hunting alongside her long-term Boyfriend.
Working at Mt. Hood Eye Care has been an eye-opening experience. Working with Doctors and a Staff that is so uplifting and cares deeply about patients and their needs has been an environment she’s always been looking for. When you can come to work and truly have fun learning every day while also educating patients on what you’ve learned is such a blessing especially when you have some of the best patients in the world. Everyone has quickly become like family to her here.
