The Lincoln City Eye Clinic has moved and is now seeing patients in its new location at the Lincoln City Plaza, 4079 NW Logan Road, suite B. The physicians of Lincoln City Eye Clinic have been providing ophthalmology and vision care to the Oregon coast in Lincoln City since 1962. The clinic is staffed by six Board certified ophthalmologists and is open Monday through Thursday.

The physicians of Lincoln City Eye Clinic value the doctor-patient relationship and offer comprehensive services in a convenient location with an emphasis on high quality medical care and patient satisfaction. The doctors in the group treat eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, dry eyes, corneal disease and cataracts. In addition, Lincoln City Eye Clinic provides routine vision care and has expanded the frame selection in their on-site optical shop. They also offer contact lens exams and contact lens order fulfillment.

Eye exams are recommended regularly as part of a person’s well care check-up. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, children should receive eye health and vision screening prior to kindergarten. School-age children should have an eye exam every one to two years. Adults with no risk factors or eye disease should have a baseline eye exam at age 40. Individuals with no risk factors should be examined by an ophthalmologist at the following intervals:

  • Ages 40 to 54 — every two to four years;
  • Ages 55 to 64 — every one to three years;
  • Ages 65 or older - every one to two years.

People with diabetes should have at least one exam per year, or as recommended by their primary care physician. Many eye diseases, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, can be diagnosed and treated early in their course to help preserve vision.
