Our Team | Eyes of New Mexico Family Optometry

Our Team

Finally, customized vision care from doctors and staff you can trust.

Dr. Martinez, Dr. Molinar, and the friendly, helpful staff at Eyes of New Mexico want you to feel genuinely cared for when you come for an exam or treatment. We are a vision-focused practice for patients of any age.

 Our goal is functional vision with care and treatment in a comfortable, friendly environment where you feel like your needs and concerns are important. It can be hard to describe your vision challenges, but you can trust we have the experience, patience, and the latest state-of-the-art technology and treatment plans to find the right solution for your vision needs.

We start with a thorough exam and a conversation with our patients. We want to know what you’re experiencing and combine that with what we discover during an exam to create a plan that will work for your vision care and your budget. And you won’t leave wondering what we did and how we came up with treatment goals. We will talk you through the process, share our knowledge and information, keep you informed, and work with you every step of the way. Every patient is different, and we provide customized care specifically designed for you. 

Our philosophy is that patients should be treated like family. With that in mind, Dr. Martinez opened Eyes of New Mexico in 2011 with the goal of helping people improve their lives by improving their vision. Her passion lies in helping optometry patients, no matter the challenge. We want everyone who walks through the doors of Eyes of New Mexico to feel like they have found an optometry practice that can make a difference.

Dr. Tiffany Garcia Martinez, O.D.

 Dr. Martinez is an Albuquerque native. She attended Albuquerque Academy and completed a degree in biology with a minor in chemistry at the University of New Mexico. Interestingly, her path to optometry started in pharmacology school. A visit to an optometrist for new lenses inspired her to make a change to optometry. She graduated from Ketchum University (formerly Southern California College of Optometry) followed by an additional year of residency training in Pediatrics and Binocular Vision at the University of Houston College of Optometry.

With a special appreciation for pediatric optometry, she worked with children with binocular vision problems and vision-related learning problems. She also broadened her experience by working with adult patients with vision impairments, newly acquired brain injuries, and soldiers returning from war with new ocular complications. Since 2010 she has also spent time working with the New Mexico School for the Blind & Visually Impaired (NMSBVI) to provide mobile clinics to low vision students throughout New Mexico.

Outside of the office, Dr. Martinez is married and has three children. She enjoys spending time with her family including playing soccer, going to the gravity park, the zoo, and the aquarium, and heading to the mountains whenever she can.

Dr. Nancy Molinar-Arguello, O.D. 

Dr. Molinar attended Bernalillo High School, graduating in 2008, and completed a degree in biology at the University of New Mexico. She attended optometry school at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, returning to Albuquerque for an additional year of residency training in ocular diseases and primary eye care at the Raymond G. Murphy Veteran’s Hospital.

 During her residency, Dr. Molinar was involved in glaucoma research as well as the treatment and management of multiple types of glaucoma as well as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Plaquenil examinations, anterior uveitis, herpetic disease of the cornea, and other diseases of the eyes. She joined the team at Eyes of New Mexico in October 2016.

Dr. Molinar is bilingual, speaking both her first language of Spanish fluently as well as English. She enjoys serving the multi-cultural Albuquerque community alongside Dr. Martinez.

Dr. Molinar is married and when not providing optometry care to her patients, enjoys spending time with her family and her Boston Terrier. She also enjoys running, movies, and good coffee.
