Eyecare Associates opens satellite office in Lincoln City


An ophthalmology group that has served the mid-Willamette Valley since 1969 opened a satellite office in Lincoln City on Monday, Jan. 14, with appointments now being taken for new patients.

Eyecare Associates is located in the Samaritan Medical Offices building, 2930 NE West Devils Lake Road, on the campus of Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital.

With the opening of this latest office, Eyecare Associates has six locations. Staffing includes three ophthalmologists and eight optometrists, along with opticians, contact lens specialists, ophthalmic technicians and office staff, all highly trained to take care of all vision and eye health needs.

One of the physicians who will see patients at the Lincoln City office is Bruce Madsen, MD. A board-certified ophthalmologist, he has practiced at Eyecare Associates since 2003. During his residency training, he developed skills in the latest technique of no-stitch cataract surgery, as well as treatment for glaucoma, strabismus (eye muscle disorder) and ocular plastics (eye plastic surgery).

Clinicians in the group are specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of a vast array of eye diseases, conditions and problems, including glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. They are skilled in both surgical and general eye care.

Along with seeing patients in the new Lincoln City office, the clinicians will have surgical privileges at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital.
