Meet The Team

Dr. Ross Chatwin

HI, I’m Dr. Ross Chatwin. I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and St. George, Utah. I became fluent in Spanish while serving an LDS mission in Monterrey, Mexico for two years. I received my Bachelors of Science in Public Health from Brigham Young University and my Doctorate of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry. I am currently a member of the American Optometric Association, Sugar House Chamber of Commerce, American Diabetic Association, and serve as President of the Utah Optometric Association.

I take pride in practicing primary care optometry as well as practicing pediatric optometry, seeing children as young as one year old. I practice ocular disease, helping patients suffering from conditions such as glaucoma, dry eye syndrome, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetes, and high blood pressure. I also enjoy fitting specialty contact lenses for patients with corneal and anterior segment conditions and orthokeratology. I have received certified training in Laser Therapy of the Anterior Chamber and Surgical Procedures for Optometric Physicians from Northeastern State University College of Optometry.

I am married to the love of my life, Rebecca Schmidt. We have 4 beautiful children Jackson, Cole, Hazel, and Ellie. We live in Becca's hometown of Bountiful. We enjoy the outdoors, camping, fishing, mountain biking, and sports, sports and more sports.
