Personalized Care for Routine & Complex Vision Problems  
Over 25 Years of Trusted Eye & Vision Care
A More Holistic Approach!
       

Welcome to my web site. I am an Optometric Physician with offices in Edmonds and Lake Stevens, Washington. 
At both offices I see adults and children for eye examinations and contact lens fittings. I do not sell glasses myself but I do sell contacts at my Edmonds Office.  You are always welcome to take my prescriptions for glasses or contacts anywhere you like. There is no pressure to buy anything at my office. My goal is to provide my patients with a very thorough but comfortable eye care experience in a non stress environment.

Our visual system like the rest of our body is fascinating and complex. When it is not working properly symptoms can include headaches, double vision, eyestrain, tired eyes, red eyes, dry eyes, dizziness, and car sickness just to name a few. Our eyes and vision can also be affected by almost any other health problem we might have and most of the drugs we use to treat those problems.  How we use our eyes, the health problems we have, previous eye and nervous system injuries, the drugs and supplements we take, and the physical and emotional stress we are under all must be considered to examine the eyes .
My exams include a complete health history as well as tests for cataracts, glaucoma, and neurological diseases. For most eye and vision problems I prefer the most conservative and natural treatments possible. I always try to educate my patients on the use of good nutrition practices, supplements, and alternative therapies when they are appropriate. When needed I am certified at the highest level allowed by law to use both topical and oral therapeutic drugs.
 
Please call to make an appointment or to ask questions. I also welcome your E-Mail questions or E-mail appointment requests.

You can now schedule appointments for my Edmonds office online. Click the link at the top of this page. Please note: To make appointments for two or more patients coming in together it is best not to use the online feature. Please call so that I can schedule the appropriate time. I sometimes have appointment times available that are not shown online. Please call if you are unable schedule a time that works for you online. 
 
Important Notice!
 
There is always a high demand for appointments in November & December. This year is busier than usual due to changes in the Boeing Vision Plan. I apologize for the long waits to get in and the difficulty finding appointments for more than one patient at a time.  Please book as soon as possible to get in before the end of the year.  The online scheduler is accurate but check back regularly. I do get an occasional cancelation.
