Customer Focus

We see you. We hear you. We keep it real. We explain medical things. We go the extra mile. We make it easy.

Medical Eye Care

Optometry isn't only about glasses and contacts. We are board certified to diagnose and manage most eye conditions, including infections, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. At Eye Eye you will get a comprehensive plan for a lifetime of good eyesight.

Contact Lenses

What magical medical devices! Contacts are amazing, and researchers are developing new lenses every year to improve comfort and vision. We provide the newest technology for anyone who wants to wear contact lenses.

Dry Eye & Allergies

From computers to climate change, everything is making our eyes more irritated. Dry, itchy, tired eyes—new treatments can keep your ocular situation super comfortable. The first step is to admit that you have a problem. Your health insurance will cover this visit, even if you don't have "vision insurance."


Kids need their eyes checked just as much as adults do, probably more. The school screening and the pediatrician do not count. We see patients age 4 and up, More and more research is showing that vision problems can be prevented during childhood. Seriously, we can't stress this enough, please take your child to an eye doctor.

What is this place?

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 a deep selection of new and vintage eyewear.


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 providers for many vision benefit networks. We wish it was as simple as just listing the companies, but some of them are absurd, deceitful corporations that profit off of your misunderstanding. We are happy to look up your plan details for you and help you understand them. Just email us at info@eyeeye.care

If you are having any symptoms such as eye redness, eye pain, or other non-routine eye problems, then you do not need "vision insurance" for that. We can bill it to your regular medical insurance as a specialist office visit.


Do you do the lenses too?

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.


What's the parking situation?

At the Capitol Hill location, most of the time you can find a 2-hour spot on our block. Around 4 it gets tougher but there are a few garages close by.

At the Leschi location, there is usually plenty of free 2-hour parking within one block of our office.


What is astigmatism?

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.
