An Eye Exam Is the First Step

The first step toward better vision is visiting our optometrists for an eye exam. Getting an exam with us is very efficient, and we make it easy, comfortable, and simple. We know that you are busy and will help you with an appointment that meets your needs and fits your schedule. Our comprehensive eye exams help us understand your current eye and vision status and uncover vision issues that needs addressing. In fact, the doctors prefer to do the entire exam themselves instead of using several different technicians. Our eye exams ensure that you stay in control of your eye health for better peace of mind.

Seeing If Glasses or Contacts Are Right for You

If your exam shows that your vision is not as sharp and comfortable as it should be, glasses or contact lenses may be the best way to improve it. Many of our patients choose eyeglasses since they're easy to use, and there are plenty of stylish frame options available at our office. We also offer various coatings and enhancements for eyeglasses to ensure your lenses are well protected and improve your vision. If you are looking to improve your vision but don't want to wear glasses, our Seattle office also provides a wide range of contact lenses.

More Than Just a Vision Exam

Not only can we improve your vision, but our optometrists can check for any health problems during an annual eye exam. Many eye diseases do not have noticeable symptoms in their early stages and can only be discovered during an eye exam. Annual eye exams give you access to the services and information you need to maintain good eye health. Our eye doctors can answer any questions you may have and help you feel more confident in finding the best treatment for your eye-related condition.

Contact Us for Your Next Eye Exam in Seattle

If you're looking for personalized eye care, reach out to us at Columbia Vision Center for more information about our eye exams, eyeglasses, and other eye care options. We're happy to help, and we want to make sure you're getting the knowledge you need to keep your eyes healthy. By working with us, we hope to provide peace of mind that your long term vision and eye health are as good as it can be.
