We know that you have a choice when it comes to your optometrist, so we strive to provide comprehensive eye exams, a great selection of glasses, and personalized care.
Dr. Amber G. Dunn

After completing her residency, she opened Gatti Vision as well as becoming an assistant professor at Pacific’s college of Optometry. Dr. Dunn provides comprehensive and medical eye exams for the entire family, with a specialty in dry eye disease.
Since the start of optometry school, Dr. Dunn has been highly active in organized optometry. As a student she represented her school on the AOSA Board of Trustees, and in her fourth year of school was elected the Vice President of all the optometry schools in North America.

Dr. Rachel Martel

Dr. Dunn started Gatti Vision with her right hand (wo)man, Alex.
Alex pursued an education at Portland state focusing on becoming a dental assistant. While at Portland State, she was also on the cheerleading squad which is where she met Dr. Dunn. When she heard Dr. Dunn was opening up a practice cold, she felt this was an opportunity for a career change.
