Overlake Family Vision moves to new location in Bellevue

Clinic serves adults and children with latest healthcare technology and eyewear fashion

Overlake Family Vision, which has served adults and children on the Eastside since 2001, has moved to a new location at 1951 152nd Pl. NE, Suite 100, Bellevue, at the intersection of Bel-Red Road and Northeast 20th Street. The clinic will hold a grand opening on Thursday June 4, 2015, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. and the public is invited to attend to see the clinic’s newest addition to its eyeglass selection, OVVO Optics. Drinks and appetizers will be served and attendees will have a chance to enter a drawing for prizes.

Overlake Family Vision was previously located at the Medical Tower of Overlake Hospital. Dr. Mary Baker, OD, said Overlake Family Vision moved to a newer space in a location with easy access from the hospital and to be closer to where her patients live.

The new location brings the latest in eye health practices and eyewear to its growing Eastside clientele, Baker said. “We offer eyewear to suit the individual personality and lifestyle of our patients to help them see and look their best. We use high-performance lenses for improved and more comfortable vision that are generally not available in commercial eye glass retailers. We also offer some unique, high-fashion lines of designer eyewear. We have a fun selection of children’s eyewear with great warranties,” said Baker, who noted that very few optical clinics carry eyewear for children.

In addition to Dr. Baker, Overlake Family Vision includes Dr. Karen Sahota, O.D., who sees both children and adults. The clinic has a sister office in Kirkland, Juanita Vision Works, where Dr. Sahota is the primary optometrist.

To attend the grand opening, please RSVP to 425-638-0700 or info@overlakefamilyvision.com.

Dr. Mary Baker received her doctor of optometry degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1991. Accepting a commission in the United States Navy, she was stationed at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, where she served eight years on active duty and in the reserves as an optometrist. She was the first optometrist to obtain Medical Surface Warfare Qualification and received several honors, including Armed Forces Junior Optometrist of the Year and other awards for military achievement, as well as community service and leadership. Dr. Baker also has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Virginia Commonwealth University and welcomes the opportunity to converse with her Spanish-speaking patients. She is an expert in visual rehabilitation and is a member of the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association. After leaving the Navy, Dr. Baker worked in an ophthalmology practice in San Diego. She worked in a variety of eye care offices in the Pacific Northwest before opening Overlake Family Vision.

Dr. Karen Sahota has more than nine years of experience in optometry, with a strong background in treating many medical ocular conditions. She has expertise and a special interest in pediatric vision and eye care. She is fluent in English and Punjabi. Dr. Sahota grew up in the greater Vancouver, B.C. area and received her Bachelor of Science degree from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and her Doctor of Optometry degree from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tenn. She was recognized by the Redmond Reporter newspaper as “Redmond’s Best Physician” in 2010 and was a runner up in 2011 and 2013. She is an active member of Optometric Physicians of Washington and the American Optometric Association. As an active member of the Redmond Lions Club, Dr. Sahota believes in giving back to her community and has participated in numerous community vision screenings. Dr. Sahota’s mission is to provide superior vision care, effortless customer service, and to educate patients on strategies to maintain ocular health and preserve vision.

Overlake Family Vision offers a full scope of optometry services including comprehensive eye exams, an extensive eyewear selection, broad choice of contact lenses, pre- and post-operative care, and an in-sight vision therapy program.
