Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Oregon Eye Specialists is exceeding CDC/Oregon Health Authority recommendations to keep patients safe during appointments. Your health and our employees’ health are our greatest concern.

Oregon Eye Specialists is limiting patients in the Optical Sight Shop. Please call to schedule an appointment with an optician prior to arriving at the clinic.
