    Dr. Champion's goal in every eye exam is to see a smile on each patient's face as they go through all of the testing to ensure their eyes are healthy and their vision is as clear as possible. This is especially true when he is working with children and tries to make each test a new "game". Born and raised in Edmonton, Dr. Champion loves working and living in his home town. He has lived elsewhere, though: in Africa for volunteer work, and in Oregon as he earned his Optometry Degree from Pacific University, which he completed in 2013. He enjoys volunteering in the community in various ways including presenting about eye health to Kindergartens and educating new moms through the Mommy Connections program.

    For his free time, he loves hanging out with his wife and two kids. He enjoys teaching some of his hobbies to his children, including longboarding and basketball.

    Dr. Cahoon has extensive specialized education in eye disease diagnosis and treatment due to a rotation at Spokane Veteran Hospital and worked with an expert glaucoma management. In addition, a clinical rotation in refractive surgery as well as becoming proficient in diagnosis and current treatment for dry eye increased his knowledge-base.

His humor, easy-going personality, compassionate spirit towards co-workers and patients alike, as well as his strong medical and diagnostic skills, will be greatly missed here but will be a blessing to those wherever he lands. We wish Ben and his family the best as they begin a new chapter in their lives down in the USA.

    Dr. Cahoon wishes to extend his thanks and appreciation to all his patients to which he has had the honor to serve these many years.
