Pediatrix Eye Care is a happy, positive, caring group of pediatric ophthalmologists, one pediatric optometrist, an optician and an energetic support staff that likes to laugh and works hard to give our patients and parents an experience above and beyond the typical doctor's office. Everything from a separate waiting area for adults and teens, a 500-frame pediatric optical shop, a movie room, to an indoor soft foam play area is geared toward our patient-centric ethos. We are a well-respected practice with a regional referral base across the Pacific Northwest and extending to Alaska.
