Lynette M. Sundholm, O.D.
I hail from a large family in Iowa. After studying zoology at Iowa State University, I earned my OD degree from Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago in 1985. And Silver Lake Eye Care was born in 1992. I am a member of the American Optometric Association, Optometric Physician of Washington and the Snohomish Society. I’ve been practicing optometry for over 25 years and I enjoy the variety of medical and functional optometry, the technological advances in eye care and the heartwarming rewards when we change someone’s life. My son, Adam, fills the balance of my life. I watch with much anticipation and participate enthusiastically in his life as he journeys to fulfill his dreams. I could not be more proud.
