Regular Eye Exams

If you're seeking an eye exam for an adult, the place to start is the Comprehensive Ophthalmology department at Casey Eye Institute's location on Portland's south waterfront (by the bottom of the tram). We also offer comprehensive ophthalmology services at other locations in Oregon and SW Washington. You can call any of these clinics to set up an appointment. If you browse our web site and can't decide who you need to call, please call 503 494-3000 during business hours and our operator will be happy to direct your call.

To schedule an appointment with this clinic, call 503 494-7830. For more information, please visit their pages on this site.

Specialty Eye Care

If your eye doctor referred you to see a specialist at Casey, you'll find more information about our specialists in the Specialty Services part of our web site. A specialist is an eye doctor who has received extensive training and experience in specific types of eye diseases or issues. For example, your eye doctor might refer you to see a glaucoma specialist if you have glaucoma. In most cases, you won't see a specialist unless an eye doctor who works in comprehensive ophthalmology has referred you, depending on the individual situation. We have specialists at multiple locations, so please make sure you know where your appointment is before you make the trip. Feel free to give us a call if you don't know for sure. Sometimes smart phone directions or taxi services will take you to the wrong place, so it's a good idea to double-check.

Billing and Insurance

Insurance policies and health plans are very complex and individual. We make every effort to process your medical claims as quickly as possible. However, it is impossible for us to know the details of every health plan. Your plan administrator is the best source for information regarding your individual insurance coverage. Thank you for your understanding.

Medicare does not cover routine eye exams, refractions or cosmetic services, so we may ask for payment on those transactions at the time of your visit.

Read more information on the OHSU web site about billing and insurance.
