Meet the Sight Shop Opticians
Our Sight Shop opticians help thousands of patients see their best each year. All our eight convenient locations are owned by Oregon Eye Specialists, so your optician works directly with your doctor to create the best spectacles for your eye health and vision needs.
Your eye health and ability to see well are directly related. When you see an optician who has access to your health and vision information – and a longtime relationship with your eye doctor – you get glasses that make the most of your vision and protect your eyes.
Certified by national standards
At The Sight Shop, all of our opticians are certified by the American Board of Opticianry, passing an examination to meet rigorous nationwide standards. Many of our opticians hold advanced opticianry certifications.
