Bellevue Eye Specialists is a combined eyewear shop and eye clinic located in Old Bellevue.

Our mission is to help everyone in Washington find unique glasses from responsible and innovative designers, and to improve their vision through personalized and compassionate medical eye care. We believe in:


From the frames we carry to the clinical services we perform, we’re committed to providing absolute satisfaction. There are no shortcuts or substitutions. We only provide products and services that we believe are best-in-class.


We source our frames from independent eyewear designers who separate themselves from the mass-market corporations and conglomerates that produce most of today’s eyewear. There’s no unnecessary markups or corners cut, just a fair price for an artist’s craft.


If you’re at your optometrist’s clinic, you may be stuck with a limited selection of frames. If you’re at a fashionable eyewear store, you may not be examined by an expert physician. Save the trip and do it all in one place.
