Our experienced team provides you with a thorough eye evaluation using the newest advances in eye care technology, and we offer you custom-curated corrective eyewear to look and see your best.

New patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam. If you have never had a comprehensive exam, don’t worry! All the tests and exercises are simple and painless, and we walk you through the process to keep you informed. If we find eye health or vision issues during your time with us, not only will we take time to explain them to you, but we are happy to send you links to informative videos illustrating and explaining your condition, so you can rest assured the information is reliable, and you can watch it at home as many times as you like.

Finally, Northside Vision offers you state of the art medical eye care, including red eye treatment, glaucoma care, and help with cataracts, diabetic eye conditions, and retinal concerns.

Did you know that roughly one-quarter of our patients are 18 years old or younger? That’s because the friendly experts at Northside Vision and Custom Optical are committed to providing Spokane with a family-friendly practice. As the father of two children, Dr Fairborn set out to design a practice that made patients of all ages feel comfortable. So we have a separate waiting area just for children, featuring family-friendly movies, comfortable seating, and plenty of books and toys. Our spacious, free on-site parking makes it easy for even the largest families with the most gear to park just outside our door.

After a thorough, relaxed exam, if your child or young adult needs protective eyewear, corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses, our Custom Optical and experienced optical staff are sure to have just the right solution… and the expertise to help you and your children find it! Book your family now.

Adult & Senior Eye Exams: Your Key to Lifetime Performing Vision

From our earliest years, our eyes continue to grow and change. Even the healthiest people experience a hardening and yellowing of their eyes’ lenses, beginning when they are teens! And if you or your loved ones have any family history of vision or eye health issues, a state-of-the-art, comprehensive annual eye exam from Northside Vision is more important than ever. Perfectly normal changes like presbyopia or cataracts will eventually affect your vision.

Other times, the eyes can change unexpectedly; sustaining damage and losing vision so slowly, you may not even notice it. With regular eye exams, the friendly experts at Northside Vision will use advanced testing methods to evaluate your vision as well as your ocular health and help be sure you understand exactly what we find and how best to treat any anomalies.
