Our clinic will be undergoing an expansion next month. We are building a second story onto our existing location to make way for more clinical space, an expanded collection of frames, and more room for our growing number of staff. This project has been in the works for years, and we are so excited to finally break ground so that we can continue evolving and finding new and innovative ways to provide excellent eye care and eye wear to the greater Seattle area.
We will remain open during construction, but we do anticipate a few short closures during certain stages of the project. These closures will be announced on our website, as well as on Yelp, Google, and Facebook, as we are made aware of them. There will be limited to no parking available in our lot during this project, though we will continue to maintain dedicated parking spaces for our patients after construction is complete. We appreciate your flexibility, and we promise to do our best to accommodate you the best we are able.
The project is expected to complete in October. Keep an 'eye' out for an invitation to our big reveal party in the fall! Follow along with the construction progress on Instagram and Facebook. We look forward to the completion of this milestone, and we can't wait to share our updated location with you!
Thank you for choosing Queen Anne Eye Clinic. We look forward to becoming your eye health care provider! Here are a few suggestions to help make your first experience at our clinic a great one.
Our clinic has a convenient, secure online portal in which you can fill out your pre-appointment paperwork prior to your visit with us. This will save you time during the check-in process and will streamline your appointment as well. Please take a few minutes to complete this step online if you are able.”
Our doctors fit a wide variety of contact lenses, from soft disposable lenses to rigid gas permeable bifocal contact lenses. We also fit specialty lenses for patients with keratoconus and other corneal disorders as well as for those who have had refractive surgery. In addition, we fit lenses such as Synergeyes Duette and Duette Multifocal, which combine the crispness and clarity of a rigid gas permeable (RGP) lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens. Our doctors can also fit CRT lenses, which reshape your cornea overnight and provide clear uncorrected vision during the day.
Our office is always expanding to include new contact lens technologies as they become available, so talk with your doctor at your next exam to see if there is a new contact lens on the market that could be perfect for you!
Do you wear Alcon contact lenses? Try MARLO! Shop online for your contacts, and they’ll deliver lenses straight from our office to your doorstep. With speedy shipping, guaranteed delivery, tracking updates, and reminders when you’re running low on lenses or due for your next exam, you’ll never have to worry about running out of contacts.
Our clinic is able to exchange or return unopened boxes of contact lenses. Large boxes (90-packs, 24-packs) containing smaller boxes are only returnable if the entire package is sealed. If you are trying out a new lens or a new prescription, we are always happy to supply trial lenses before you purchase boxes of lenses.

At Queen Anne Eye Clinic we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the best possible standard of care. Because of this we now offer the Optomap® Retinal Exam. This non-invasive procedure allows our doctors to see a much broader and more detailed view of the retina than is possible with conventional methods. When reviewed, the scan becomes a permanent part of your medical file, enabling our doctors to make important comparisons should potential vision-threatening conditions show themselves at a future examination.
Optomap® ultra-wide digital retinal imaging offers a 200° view of the back of the eye, versus only 30°-90° using conventional methods. Now you can see exactly what your doctor sees!
The digital imaging system takes images of the retina (the back part of the inner eye). This procedure assists your doctors in early detection and follow-up care of many disorders, including glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, and other vision threatening conditions. The images will be stored in the computer and compared with images at future examinations.
The Humphrey Visual Field is a special automated procedure used to perform perimetry, a test that measures the entire area of peripheral vision that can be seen while the eye is focused on a central point. Patients with glaucoma will often undergo this test on a regular basis in order to determine how quickly the disease is progressing. The Humphrey Visual Field test can also be used to detect conditions within the optic nerve of the eye, and certain neurological conditions as well.
OCT is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT is a unique test because it allows doctors to look at cross-sectional layers of the retina. Each of the ten layers in the retina can be detected. OCT allows a doctor to measure the thickness of each layer to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of retinal diseases and conditions. Such conditions include age-related macular degeneration, pre-retinal membranes, macular swelling, macular holes, cystoid macular edema, central serous retinopathy, glaucoma, and optic nerve damage.
Our office is proud to offer products to relieve dry eye symptoms and aid in the support of healthy ocular tissue. We currently carry the following products recommended by our doctors:
For those with Dry Eyes:
MacuHealth is a clinically proven supplement designed to rebuild and maximize macular pigment over a lifetime, resulting in enhanced vision. This supplement also aids in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration. This supplement contains three key dietary nutrients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-Zeaxanthin, that make up the macular pigment.
Nordic Naturals ProDHA Eye – contains a combination of omega-3 , lutein, and zeaxanthin for patients who suffer from dry eyes and are at higher risk for macular degeneration.
We carry a huge selection of frames, with a wide array of styles that will complement both your appearance and your vision needs. Our opticians will take time to understand your personal style and pay careful attention to your visual demands when helping you select the perfect frame.
Our office also offers custom-made sports goggles, swim and dive masks, and ski mask inserts to accomodate your active eyewear needs.
Our patients tell us that we have one of the largest collections of children’s eyewear in the area. We work hard to curate frames in a reasonable price range that are durable and stylish! Many of our adult frame lines manufacture frames for children as well. We also carry sports goggles to suit your child’s active lifestyle!
Our optical staff will take the time to understand your lifestyle needs. No matter what your profession or hobby, our team can use their expertise to recommend specific solutions to enhance your vision.
Our clinic features the Hoya lens portfolio, among other brands. The iD MyStyle 2 progressive lens offers dynamic day-to-night vision that can be tailored to your particular lifestyle, allowing for more comfortable viewing of digital devices and print materials. Using digital measurements along with a lifestyle questionnaire, the iD MyStyle 2 lens is custom-made for each patient's individual visual needs. Hoya also offers multifocal office lenses which provide patients with the opportunity for visual acuity at both intermediate and near focal distances without the compromised peripheral vision common to standard progressive lenses as well as allowing for comfortable head and body posture while at a computer.
In the age of technology, our clinic recommends blue light blocking anti-glare coatings. Blue light is everywhere: it is emitted from the sun, digital screens, electronic devices, and fluorescent and LED lighting. Studies show that exposure to blue light can disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, which can cause a dysfunction of your natural circadian rhythm. Reducing the eye’s exposure to this harmful blue light can also prevent retinal cell damage that can lead to macular degeneration.
Our office has access to hundreds of styles of sunglass frames, and can customize prescription lenses for a wide variety of uses.
There is a no-show/cancellation policy for all appointments missed or cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment time. In order for us to accomodate other patients, please notify us of a cancellation at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.
The evaluation of contact lenses is not part of the usual comprehensive eye exam. An additional charge will be issued for this service. Fees for services (fitting, evaluation, and training) for soft contact lenses range from $30-$120. Evaluation for specialty and therapeutic contact lenses vary depending on complexity.
Queen Anne Eye Clinic will bill and await payment from your insurance company. We will then send you a statement if a balance remains, which is due 30 days from notification. If payment is not recieved after 90 days, your account will accrue a 1% finance charge every month until a payment is made. A $25 fee will be assessed for all returned checks.
Contact lens orders must be paid in full at time of order. Contact lenses can be mailed free of charge, some restrictions apply. Eyewear orders require a minimum deposit of 50% before order may be processed. Eyeglass lenses are custom made and cannot be refunded. See "Eyewear Return/Exchange Policy" below for more information.
All sales of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses are made to order. Therefore, we are unable to refund any products that are not resalable or returnable to the manufacturer. If, however, there are any discrepancies between the Doctor’s prescription and the lenses manufactured by the lab, or between the Doctor’s prescription and the actual prescription, a one-time adjustment to the prescription lenses is included at no charge within 60 days from the date of purchase. Subsequent changes will incur additional charges.
In the event that a patient does not adapt to a pair of prescription progressive eyeglasses within 60 days, we will remake the lenses (one-time only) into a standard bifocal or single vision lens at no additional charge to the patient. No refund will be given for the price difference in materials.
All name-brand eyeglass frames are under manufacturer warranty for any manufacturing defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This does not include accidental damage, loss, or breakage that has been incurred to the frames.
