We are excited to introduce the growing Rainier Eye team!
Drs. Loeb and Ferris established Rainier Eye in 2023. Rainier Eye is built for the needs of the community which it serves. We prioritize independently-made products, local services, and staff who live in the area. Our clinic environment reflects our love of Northwest nature. We are dedicated to creating a professional and inviting space, and providing the care we would like to receive, and hope you will join us at Rainier Eye!
After working as an associate doctor in Olympia for over 11 years, Dr. Loeb is excited to partner with Dr. Ferris to establish a new practice centered on patient care. She is bringing her education and experience to Chehalis, Washington to provide eye care for the community.
Dr. Loeb was born and raised in California and has lived in Washington since 2010 and feels blessed to call the beautiful Pacific Northwest her home. She attended the University of California, Davis where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior in 2003. Afterward, she worked as an eye care technician in Sacramento, CA. This was her first introduction to the world of eye care, and she was motivated to return to school to pursue a career as an optometrist. She went on to complete her doctorate through Indiana University School of Optometry, where she graduated in 2010 with high honors.
Dr. Loeb focuses on providing high-quality patient care and believes in building relationships with her patients. She is trained in the treatment and management of eye diseases including Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Dry Eyes, and more. Over the past 10 years, she has developed a specialty in Myopia Management and Specialty Contact Lens Fitting. She is also experienced in providing annual diabetic eye exams. Dr. Loeb enjoys helping patients of all ages.
In her free time, she enjoys books, movies, music, and travel. She enjoys spending time exploring the Pacific Northwest trails with her husband Brian and four children: Henry, Penny, Charlotte, and Norah.
Dr. Mary Ferris is eager to connect with the community as a new business owner. She has practiced optometry in Olympia since 2009 and was awarded Best of the South Sound: Best Doctor for 2022. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages, fitting contact lenses, and solving optical challenges with creative solutions. Her specialty training is in ocular disease, low vision, and surgical co-management.
Dr. Ferris grew up in Indiana and graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Spanish minor, studied Rainforest Ecology in Costa Rica, and then completed her Doctor of Optometry degree at Indiana University. Her residency training included the VA Hospital in Walla Walla, Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute (PCLI) in Kennewick, and the Centro de Rehabilitación Visual in Guanajuato, México.
In her spare time, she keeps busy by volunteering for VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity,) the Junior League of Olympia, Hope Vision Foundation, the South Sound Reading Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and other local nonprofits. She is often found doing home improvement projects with her husband Scott and paddleboarding with her black Labrador, Pepper.
