About Us

Located in Liberty Lake, Washington, our specialties include multifocal contact lenses, dry eye management, headache evaluation, disease management and routine vision exams. We work closely with area physicians to co-manage patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, or those taking high-risk medications such as those for Arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis. In addition we utilize a strong network of local ophthalmologists to coordinate surgeries such as cataract surgery or LASIK. Lilac Family Eye Care is also a “red eye urgent care” and accepts walk-in eye emergencies.

Your entire family is welcome at our office. Our staff is pleased to provide the highest quality eye care in the area! We are here to help you and answer your questions.

Doctor Darnell was born and raised in Missoula, Montana. In 1999, she moved to Spokane to earn her undergraduate work at Gonzaga University, also meeting her husband, Nathan. Michelle then moved to Portland, Oregon to obtain her Doctor of Optometry degree, where she graduated “with distinction” or “with honors.” During her time at Pacific University, she had the opportunity to travel with the staff of Amigos Eye Care to administer eye care to the people of Belize. Here she learned her true passion is helping people live life to the fullest. One of her driving focuses is to develop meaningful relationships with her patients, ensuring they have the information they need to make educated decisions about their eye health and vision needs. When she is not taking care of patients, Michelle enjoys hiking, photography, acting, reading, and practicing her Spanish.
