Myoptic Optometry & Eye Wear settles in on SE 13th Avenue
A new optometry and eyewear business named "Myoptic" opened in June at 8046 S.E. 13th Avenue. The store is the third and newest branch of the business owned by Sellwood resident Summy To; the other two are in the Laurelhurst and Williams neighborhoods. The shop handed out nearly a thousand free pairs of solar viewing glasses and safety instructions for the August 21 solar eclipse.
Optometrist Harrison Paul is one of six employees at the site. "We offer full medical diagnostic eye exams and prescription glasses and contact lenses here," he says. "We accept most insurance programs. This is our largest location, and we feature a 'dry eye' clinic, and photo booth so clients can check how their new eyewear looks before purchase."
Myoptic has an in-house lab for lens edging and cutting, and two eyeglass-shaped bike racks for cyclists to use on either side of the building. Their mission statement reads: "Founded on a principle of contribution and community, Myoptic gives a percent of every sale to a charity that you choose."
The shop is open Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Sundays and Mondays. For information, call 503/420-8689, or go online to www.myopticpdx.com
