Making a decision about your eyewear...
We carry a large variety of top designer frames for both eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Eyeglasses are more popular today than ever, despite the availability of contact lenses and vision correction surgery.
Well-chosen sunglasses offer fashion, function and protection from UV rays and can slow formation of cataracts!
Get tips on caring for your lenses and frames and learn about the benefits of bifocals, progressives, high index lenses, and prescription sunglasses.
Today’s eyeglass lens treatments make a real difference in what you see, and what you don’t see. Scratches, glare, ultraviolet rays—all are potential hazards or annoyances and can be minimized or eliminated by a lens treatment. Seattle has some of the worst glare in the USA- really!
Help your child choose eyewear that suits their lifestyle. The right frame and lens will help them in school, work, and at play.

We can order almost any contact lense!
We can also order all of the most advanced contact lens brands!
Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses. All contacts are not the same, and are medical devices that are on the most sensitive part of the body, the cornea.
Eye Exams for Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are medical devices.
A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your appropriate optimized contact lens Rx. Therefore a contact lens evaluation is an additional service as it takes more time, expertise, and potential risk.
Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision, and high oxygen permeability.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option! Multifocal and progressive contact lenses are also available in contact both soft and rigid varieties.
We prescribe a lot of these for folks who know what dialing a phone meant, or what a record looks like! Even some kids!
Contact Lenses for the "Hard-to-Fit" Patient
Challenges such as high astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus, and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time, patience and expense.
