back to our team

Dr. Robert Mulgrew has practiced in Tucson for over 30 years. He opened Affinity Eye Care in 2009. Prior to Affinity Eye Care, Dr. Mulgrew was the independent leasehold doctor at Lenscrafters.

Dr. Mulgrew is originally from the Bronx, New York. He moved to New Jersey where he attended high school. He later moved to Indiana and graduated from Indiana University in 1980 with a degree in Biology. He moved to Tucson after graduation and worked as a research assistant for The University of Arizona and the Pima County Health Department.

Dr. Mulgrew completed his four years of Optometry School at the Southern California School of Optometry and he received his doctorate in 1985. He did his internships at the Los Angeles and Tucson Veterans Association Medical Centers and he was senior class president.

Dr. Mulgrew returned to Tucson in 1985 and became very interested in fitting all types of contact lenses, including bifocal contact lenses, specialty lenses for astigmatism and new innovative Daily lens designs. In 1996 he accepted a one year sabbatical clinical instructor position in the contact lens clinic at the University of Aukland School of Optometry in New Zealand. He has also been a lifetime member of the American Optometric Association and Southern Arizona Optometric Society, having served as both president and vice president, for the latter.

Dr. Mulgrew has participated in many international Gift of Sight missions. He has helped thousands of people in such countries as Bolivia, Ecuador, China, Panama, Bulgaria, Peru, and Tanzania. He is a member of the VOSH and has done many missions in Mexico. In addition, our office has provided hundreds of free exams and glasses for local school children and needy individuals.

Dr. Mulgrew has one son, who is a dentist in Austin, Texas. He enjoys hiking, scuba, traveling, and most recently, Pickleball.
