The College of Optometry’s newest EyeClinic in Beaverton will reveal the world’s first “3D Performance Clinic” on Thursday, Oct. 6.
This clinic’s main purpose is to diagnose and treat vision coordination problems affecting 3D sight. It contains technology capable of measuring binocular vision performance and can offer treatments such as prismatic and 3D polarized prescriptions to help individuals better experience 3D media.
Director of the College of Optometry’s Vision Performance Institute said that the clinic is the first of its kind to specialize in diagnosing and managing eye health related to electronic 3D displays.
Several events are scheduled to celebrate the unveiling, including tours of the facility at 2 p.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m. and several speakers including Pacific University President Lesley Hallick and Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle.
The event is free and open to the public. The clinic is located at 12600 SW Crescent St., Suite 130 in Beaverton, just off the Red and Blue lines of the MAX and can be reached at 503-352-1699.
Pacific’s Beaverton EyeClinic has been open since August. It offers many services including primary care, contact lens and visual field exams, treatment for eye infections and foreign body removal, retinal photography and imaging for multiple diseases.
The clinic accepts most vision and medical insurances and offers a variety of reduced fee and alternative payment options for the uninsured.
