In our flagship Mount Vernon clinic, you'll not only find state-of-the-art technology and award-winning ophthalmologists and optometrists -- you'll also discover our locally-focused mission, which includes: doctors and specialists (cornea, eyelid, and more) who live in the communities they serve; a dedicated eye surgery center, centrally-located in Mount Vernon; and an optical department that bypasses the big corporations to locally design and independently source our own beautiful, affordable frames. Our world is your vision.

I had to get cataract surgery on 1 eye. It went so smooth and pain free. I have had glasses since the 3rd grade and now I can go without them 50% of the time!...My thanks to Dr.Siapco. Looking forward to getting my other eye done. I bought my first sun glasses! Thank you all.

From the first appointment to my final exam this is the most professional doctor I've ever been to. Would recommend to anyone thinking about getting cataract surgery. Thank you Dr Pereira for the successful surgery on my eyes. Also Thanks to all the staff that helped, it's nice to see again.

Excellent service, more than satisfied. everyone was helpful, kind, and fast. I am more than happy to make Cascadia Eye my permanent optometry office. I have been as far as Seattle and have not seen better results in medical testing and inspection than what I have received from Dr. Siapco--plus it's way closer
