To our patients and neighbors:

Hooray!  We are slowly and carefully returning to our patient care duties at Coffman Vision Clinic.  Our office will be open Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm starting May 26th, by appointment only. We appreciate your patience during this hectic time.  The safety of our patients and our staff is extremely important to us.

Here are the details:

We will be open for routine eye exams and eye care, office visits, and emergencies, but not for new contact lens training.

We will be scheduling patients with our optician staff for dispenses, pick-ups, adjustments, frame styling, etc.

We are limiting the number of patients in the office at a time to increase safety.

An employee will greet patients at the door to check in, answer questions, and take temperature using non-contact equipment. Any temperature reading above 100 will be asked to repeat the screening again in 10 minutes or be sent home.

Our middle door will be EXIT ONLY, and our west door (near the Fred Meyer grocery entrance) will be ENTRANCE ONLY.

Any patient exhibiting any signs of any illness will be sent home.

Patients will be required to wear a mask to be admitted indoors. If patients do not own a mask, we can provide a disposable surgical mask for $1.

No extra family members will be allowed in the clinic except for guardians and language interpreters.

Patients choosing frames will be attended by an optician for styling and to collect discarded frame choices for disinfection.

All CVC employees will be wearing masks and disinfecting all contact points between patients.

Thank you for your continued patience during this difficult time. We are looking forward to seeing everyone very soon!

We are not seeing patients for routine eye care or eye emergencies, yet.  We are eager to get back to our normal routine.  If you have need of a replacement pair of glasses, please leave a detailed message on our answering machine (541-389-4774) or write a request to We are scheduling specific times for patients to conduct necessary face-to-face transactions at our clinic to avoid having multiple patients in the office at once.
