Dr. Catchatoorian, known as “Dr. C” around the office, graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry- Salus University with a Doctorate of Optometry degree in 1994. He moved his family to Charlotte soon after and eventually opened Advance Eyecare, his private practice, in 1995. He is board certified in North Carolina to treat medical eye disease and specializes in sports vision and pediatric eye care. He is also a recipient of the American Optometric Association award for his 25-year membership.
Dr. C made his seventh trip abroad to provide international eye care for those in need with the Lions in Sight organization. Over the past several years he has been to Panama, Peru, Ghana, Haiti, and Mexico to lend his services. He also volunteers with the local Lions Club to provide free exams in Charlotte.
Dr. C finds joy in helping and serving those in the Charlotte community. He has served in several church leadership positions, including: working with the youth in the Boy Scouts Program, teaching Sunday School, playing with the Nursery kids, and training adults on how to minister and administer Gospel doctrine properly.
In his spare time you can find Dr. C coaching or playing soccer; going to the movies and traveling with his wife; walking his golden retriever, Ellie, on the Greenway; or spending time with his four adult children who are scattered across the U.S.
