Dr. J. Wallace Walker OD
Dr. Walker graduated from Pacific University College of Optometry after earning a Bachelor’s in Spanish from Brigham Young University. Following that, he did an internship in New York City for people with visual impairments, as well as a rotation at the VA hospital in optometry services.
He started practicing in Molalla in 1994; in 2014, he joined the team in Milwaukie as well. At both clinics, he performs eye exams, treats eye diseases and fits contact lenses. He’s also the medical director of both clinics.
Dr. Walker is proud of the relationships they’ve developed over the years – the doctor-patient relationships, as well as professional relationships with other specialists so that when a patient needs specialty care, he can refer them to the right person. “We’re pretty good at finding out the patient’s needs and coming up with a solution,” he said. “I enjoy problem-solving, and I enjoy helping people.”
Random fact about Dr. Walker? He plays the banjo. He hates fishing. He’s also taken optometry students to South and Central America multiple times over the years to provide eye care.

Dr. Territo grew up in Bedford, Pennsylvania, just south of Pittsburgh. After getting her undergraduate degree in the area, she moved to the Pacific Northwest and immediately fell in love with her new home. She attended Pacific University’s College of Optometry and graduated in 2019. From a young age she knew she wanted to be an optometrist, with multiple family members also practicing in the field. Dr. Territo completed clinical rotations within ophthalmology, Indian Health Services, as well as providing eye care to our veterans at Lexington VAMC and active service members abroad at Stuttgart Army Base in Stuttgart, Germany.
Dr. Territo is passionate about providing eye care to all ages. She especially enjoys working with young patients and educating them on how corrective lenses can facilitate ones learning and growth. Her clinical interests lie in primary care optometry as well as the management and treatment of diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eye syndrome and myopia management. She believes every patient is unique and special and deserves individualized treatment plans.
While at Pacific University, Dr. Territo discovered her passion for humanitarian work.

Myla started at the clinic in 2001, after getting her associate’s degree in English. As practice manager, she bills insurances makes appointments and occasionally fills in for the opticians. In short, she does a little bit of everything.
What she enjoys most about her job is the people she works with; she also enjoys the community of patients at the clinic too. Rooted in a small community, the team here ends up serving a lot of the same families over the generations: parents, then children, now their children in turn. Being able to get to know patients in a meaningful way, remember them and reconnect with them when they come in for care – that’s what sets the clinic apart, in Myla’s view.
Random fact about Myla? She’s an avid reader, devouring five or six books a week. Whenever she’s not busy with something else, chances are, she’s reading.
