I had a really great experience with Dr. Anderson and his office. I was seen almost immediately and in the firstpart I was taken through six or so tests. Everything was explained to me along the way - it was efficient, but not at all rushed. In the second part of the exam, all of my results and images from the earlier tests were explained in great detail. I've seen optometrists every year for at least 15 years and I've never had the tests explained as thoroughly, especially not with images. Dr. Anderson also worked with me to find the best fitting lenses for my particular eye shape - third time's the charm. All in all a good experience.

About Dr. Chad Anderson

Dr. Anderson’s interest in eye care started from a young age, as he watched his brother have multiple treatments for amblyopia and strabismus (an eye turn). Watching his family work through and succeed with these visual problems has given him an inside view into the struggles individuals and families face in eye care. Dr. Anderson credits this background with helping him understand and empathize with his patients’ spoken and unspoken concerns. He ensures potentially confusing medical jargon is understood well enough to be remembered and applied after patients leave the office. Dr. Anderson also devotes part of his clinical time to patients at Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center. There he works as an attending physician overseeing patient care and clinical instruction of optometry interns from Pacific University. Working in a university setting provides opportunities for great dialogue with some of the area’s best researchers and educators. Spectacle greatly benefits from this by always being at the forefront of eye care. Away from the office, Dr. Anderson and his wife enjoy the challenge of keeping up with their five busy children. This includes simulating NBA games on mini-hoops, yelling “gooooooaaaal” on the soccer field, and having jump wars on the trampoline. He and his wife are novice cyclists and love looking for the best pizza in town. Have a favorite? Send him a tweet with your top spot.

I had a great visit with Chad, he was thoughtful and professional. He inquired about issues I had been having for years and actually gave me some solutions and hope that some progress could be made. I felt like he reallyhad the well being of my eyes as a priority when we discussed options and further care. I would highly recommend his services to anyone!

Fantastic service and facilities! This was my first time in years seeing an optometrist and I couldn't have been happier. The office is beautiful and the staff is all super friendly. Dr. Anderson was friendly and explained everything very clearly.The selection of frames and help finding the right pair couldn't have been smoother.
