Doctor & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctor and staff who make Advanced Eyecare & The Eyewear Gallery a proud provider of vision care services and products in Myrtle Creek.
Dr. Lynn E. Goodwin
Meet Dr. Lynn E. Goodwin! Owner and physician here at Advanced Eyecare. As a second-generation optometrist his professionalism and experience runs deep, and this Doctor loves what he does. The Goodwin practice of Optometry began here in Myrtle Creek, Oregon in 1952 by his father Dr. Henry Goodwin who practiced optometry for more than 40 years.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Lynn Goodwin’s chosen path made its way toward a career in optometry. After graduating from South Umpqua High School, he earned his Bachelors Degree in General Science from Oregon State University. Four years later, in 1980, he received his Doctor of Optometry Degree from Pacific University. Course work completed, and degree in hand, Dr. Lynn Goodwin happily moved home to Myrtle Creek to join his father in practice.
Dr. Goodwin has committed his professional life to providing excellent vision services in the Douglas County community. He serves people of all ages and gives them the personal attention and high-quality eye care they need. Investments in advanced technologies and well-trained staff have maintained a standard that goes beyond what might be expected in a small town. Dr. Goodwin has inspired a loyal patient base, and always welcomes new patients into the practice.
When he is not seeing patients, Dr. Goodwin spends his time with his family. His children and grandchildren are an important part of his life. He and his son can often be found tending to projects together on the weekends. Fridays are typically reserved for family dinner followed by dominoes or movie night. He enjoys hunting, fishing, and being outdoors, but he is certainly happiest in his home surrounded by the people he loves.
This is the amazing Mrs. Goodwin, married to Dr. Goodwin for 37 years. Although her role in the practice remains behind the scenes, she can often be seen buzzing around the building with a beautiful smile on her face. Her generous spirit and incredible ability to mentor and build up those around her, make her role irreplaceable. She has an eye for pragmatically assessing business flow, articulating that evaluation, and aligning office staff and systems so that the goals and vision for the practice can be achieved. Outside the office, Chris loves spending time with her husband, her children and her grandchildren. She is an amazing hostess (there’s that generous spirit peeking through), who enjoys having family and friends gather in her home. Cooking, reading, running, traveling, and home projects are a few more things that light up her heart.
Terri is our resident Optician who manages all things glasses. 2018 marks 20 years of service Terri has devoted to Advanced Eyecare and our patients. Her experience abounds throughout the office, but her expertise is focused in frame and lens selection, dispensing, fitting, repairs, and inventory. She does it all! She has a keen eye for selecting a frame that not only fits the style a patient is looking for, but she is also able to factor in other details about life, work and activity level, resulting in a pair of glasses that are a perfect fit. When she is not at work, Terri loves spending time with her husband and two Pointer pups Ringo and Daisy. Together they enjoy home improvement projects, spending time with close friends, and weekend getaways at the coast.
Toni is Advanced Eyecare’s front desk manager. She is one of the lovely faces to greet patients when they walk in the door. With 16 years at Advanced Eyecare, she is our front desk ninja, able to handle the many challenges that come at the front of house manager of a medical clinic. From patients, to phones, to scheduling, and insurance verification, there are not many things that get past this awesome gal! In her off time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, riding their motorcycles together, yard work, and community service related to her Christian ministry.
This lady here is our insurance and billing specialist. She is smart, she works hard, she has a great sense of humor and she certainly doesn’t back down from a challenge. She is passionate in her pursuit of knowledge and expertise in her position here at our clinic. If a problem arises with a patient’s insurance or services billed, she will get to the bottom of it. When she is not at the office, Jen is a farm girl and animal lover. She loves spending time with her family and friends, riding horses, and finding an adventure to be had.
Kellyn wears a few different hats here at the office. A couple of days a week she is the optometric technician tending to all preliminary patient care and interaction before Dr. Goodwin comes in, as well as contact lens training, inventory, and stock. Another day she acts as Terri’s behind the scenes help in the optical department and last, but not least, her back office position coordinates and implements practice development projects, maintains website management, social media, and technology-based communication with patients. When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family. She is married to Dr. Goodwin’s son Garrett and they have two boys Kaid and Jase. Kellyn also loves reading, running, yoga, playing dominoes, and learning new things.
