Dr. Channing Baird
A native of Colorado, Dr. Baird’s annual mission trips to all parts of the world are her passion bringing medications, dental services, and prescription eyeglasses to impoverished communities. She enjoys meeting people and seeking answers that help improve their lives. She says, “Optometrists do more than care for their patients’ eyes, they can improve a person’s vision. It’s rewarding to have a skill that people need globally.”
Dr. Kathryn Lachenman
Prior to joining Eyes of the World in 2014, Dr. Lachenman practiced in a refractive and cataract surgery setting, but her desire for more one-on-one time with patients guided her back to private practice. She has been practicing since 2011.
When not in the office, Dr. Lachenman enjoys running, skiing, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
Dr. Sharnelle Kamibayashi
Sharnelle Kamibayashi, O.D. received her Doctor of Optometry from Pacific University’s College of Optometry, graduating with distinction, and was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society each year. Furthermore, Dr. Kamibayashi earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology, with a minor in Neuroscience, from the University of Portland.
Dr. Kamibayashi completed an optometric residency at Georgia Eye Partners, specializing in ocular disease with an emphasis in cornea and contact lenses, and refractive and ocular surgery. She is also a proud member of the American Optometric Association, the American Academy of Optometry, and the Colorado Optometric Association.
Inspired by her father, who has been legally blind from a young age, Dr. Kamibayashi is very passionate about clear vision and feels there is nothing more important than serving others by providing quality eyecare.
When not in the office, Dr. Kamibayashi loves spending time with her family and dogs, traveling, hiking, and dancing – she even danced for the NBA Portland Trail Blazers before starting optometry school.
