Dr. Joe Mannen earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona and his Doctor of Optometry degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California.
Dr. Mannen was born in San Diego, California while his father was stationed at the Naval Hospital. He grew up in St. Helens, Oregon; a small town just north of Portland. His parents are both eye doctors who owned and operated a private Optometry practice. This is where Dr. Mannen learned first hand the importance of doctors forming a strong personal relationship with their patients. He is passionate about providing the very best care for his patients and has particular interests in eye disease management and contact lenses.
Dr. Mannen has been a part of the team at Complete Family Vision Care Optometry since early 2018. It is a special place with a long legacy of excellent patient care. Interestingly, his father worked in this very same practice some thirty years ago after his Naval service. Dr. Mannen has been the clinical investigator for numerous contact lens, dry eye disease, and ocular drug studies.
Outside of the office, Dr. Mannen is an avid sports enthusiast and enjoys golf, tennis, baseball, and bowling. He spends most of his free time with his wife, Sharon and their French bulldog named Bella. Weekend adventures often include a trip to the beach, visiting a local dog park, or exploring new hiking trails.
