We love our newly expanded space on Capitol Hill designed for us by Best Practice Architecture. Photographer Rafael Soldi captured these fantastic images, but you should come by to see it IRL.
We are an optometry clinic. We aim to give you the best experience in caring for every aspect of your eyes and vision. We provide individualized vision testing, preventative eye health examinations, urgent medical eye care, and accessible vision technology for all types of people. We also have one of the best selections of eyewear that you will ever find.
What should I expect at my first appointment?
At your first routine visit, we will give you a comprehensive exam and address any eye or vision issues that you have. If you wear contact lenses, then you can wear them to the appointment. Please bring your glasses too, along with information on your current contact lens brand and base curve.
Do you take insurance?
Yes and we bill them directly for exams and glasses.
We are in-network with most medical insurance, including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Lifewise, Premera, Uniform, Regence, Aetna, United, First Choice, Kaiser Permanente, Medicare and Medicaid Apple Health Provider One (Amerigroup, Community Health Plan, Coordinated Care, Ambetter, etc). We no longer accept Molina.
If we are not in your network, we can usually look up your out-of-network benefits and even bill them directly.
Each person's situation is unique, and we're happy to look your's up for you. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, all the lenses. We have our own lab, and we have access to other independent labs. We can customize them just the way you like it.
We carry the best drops and supplements to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable. Schedule an exam to know which ones you need.
Most of the time you can find a 2-hour spot on our block. Around 4:00 it gets tougher, and there is a garage just around the corner on 14th Ave.
This is the #1 FAQ. It means your eye focuses light at one plane differently than light at the opposite plane. For example, you may see the vertical part of a letter more clearly than the horizontal part. Or it could be one part of the letter X more clearly than the other part if your astigmatism is oblique. The secret about astigmatism is that everyone has it. The question is, how much?
