Optical Centers in Bellingham, Mount Vernon, Whidbey, Stanwood & Sedro-Woolley
Our opticians are here to help with your glasses!
Finding you a stylish and affordable glasses “wardrobe,” with frames that fit well and lenses that help you to see during your favorite activities, is a passion for our optical professionals!
Our friendly eye professionals in Bellingham, Mount Vernon, Sedro-Woolley, Stanwood and Whidbey Island take the time to evaluate each person’s specific diagnosis, they find out each patient’s passions, what type of work and activities they do, and they are skilled at choosing the most complimentary eye wear shapes and sizes for each face shape.
They are dedicated to your comfort, and, with their well-trained eye, will provide you not only with superior fit, but possibly a new color or style that you may not have thought to try–and will end up loving your glasses!
Many of our opticians are certified with the American Board of Opticianry (which means they passed a national certification test) and/or licensed with the State Department of Health (they passed a three-part test in optics, contact lenses, and practical skills after three years of schooling or apprenticeship.)
Choosing the perfect frames
When selecting glasses, there are a few parameters to stay within, and then the rest is up to your personal style preferences.
First, the bridge (the part that rests on your nose) must fit—no gaps, no perching, no sliding— and it must lay smoothly along the sides of your nose. Also, you must watch that the bridge isn’t so high up on your face that it elongates your nose (unless you have a short nose that would look better longer!).
Next, look in the mirror. Can you see your eyebrows? Are they above the frame or are you seeing them through the lenses? These are all signs our opticians look for when helping you decide!
Should I take care of my own glasses?
A great pair of glasses should be both comfortable and look fantastic, and they take regular maintenance to keep them at their best! Many people wonder when they should fit their own glasses, and when to take them to their local optician for professional care. Cascadia Eye’s expert and optical manager, Becki, shares her own tips and tricks to fit your glasses AND tells when you need to come in to an optical center to find professional expertise.
More glasses brands:
Cascadia Eye also offers a wide variety of national fashion eyewear brands. While we do carry frame lines at luxury price points, we insist on there being a reason for higher prices (e.g. fully made in the USA, or patented technology in their design) or we won’t carry them.
Buying more than one pair of glasses?
Choose a Cascadia Eye Cherry payment plan for up to 12 months at 0% APR options for those who qualify. Apply with your phone and get an approval in seconds. There is no hard credit check, and all you need is your state ID and mobile phone number.
Great lenses make a difference!
For many years our Sedro-Woolley location has proudly housed our own optical lab, where our expert lens specialist hand crafts many of our own lenses in-house. We are the only optical center with that can offer this convenience. Because of this service, all our locations are able to offer extremely well-priced eyeglasses in less time than other optical centers.

Here at Cascadia Eye, we create and sell many styles of lenses. Each one serves an important purpose. But what do they do and how do you choose the best one for your particular work and personal style, and hobbies?
