I wish I got the name of the optician who helped me with my broken glasses this morning. She was aw... esome. I am a patient of the clinic, but I was a walk-in today. I sat on my favorite pair of computer/reading glasses, and they broke. I thought for sure I was going to be stuck buying a new pair, which also meant waiting days to get them. NOT TODAY! The optician took them in the back and after a little magic, she had them back to normal. It's difficult to tell they were ever broken. THAT is reason enough for me to keep coming back. THANK YOU!!!!!

The staff was amazing and friendly. I worked in particular with Alissa, the first time I came in I a... lways had trouble finding glasses that look good on me. Alissa was very understanding and did an amazing job at finding the perfect pair for me. The two other times I have been there since then Alissa has given amazing service as with the rest of the staff. I highly recommend going here!!

I had my eyes evaluated (first time in 4 years). I could afford the frames that I liked. Amber wrote... down the name of the frames and the dimensions for me to take home. I ended up purchasing my glasses online. Once I received them my eyes could not focus. I did not know if I received the wrong prescription, I entered the Rx wrong, or if they manufactured my lenses incorrectly. I called Cottage Grove Eye Care Clinic to ask some questions. I thought that I would get some "shame" for not getting my lenses/frames with them. Amber was AMAZING! She offered some advice then offered for me to come in. She checked what I ordered, chechecked my Rx, and she checked my lenses. She was so incredibly helpful! I will continue with that clinic just because of her!

My daughters and I see Dr. Cole for our vision exams. When we walk through the doors we are greeted... with smiles and addressed by name. Dr. Cole is very nice and friendly. He is compassionate, caring, listens well, along with being dedicated and determined to help improve our vision. Additionally, Dr. Cole cares about the people in the community and about Cottage Grove, by being involved and giving back. He has served on committees, given his time and resources to organizations within the community as well. Thank you Dr. Cole and wonderful staff for taking care of us.

I've been seeing Dr. Cole since I was 13, I'm 28 now, and he's been awesome. He knows about my weird... eyeballs and takes good care of them. I would recommend Dr. Cole, he's awesome and very cool and kind.

Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Cottage Grove is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.
