Comprehensive Optometry

"Helping a patient with a difficult contact lens problem and seeing a smile when we’ve solved it is the highlight of my day."

"A big part of my job is understanding the patient’s needs right from the start."

Ronald M. Hampel, OD is the Eastside contact lens expert. He practices comprehensive optometry with an emphasis on complex contact lens challenges.


Dr. Hampel received a B.Sc. in physiology from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada and a B.A. in Journalism from the University if Regina, Canada. After a rewarding eight year career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation he decided to change course in life and become an Optometrist. He earned his optometry doctorate at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, OR where he was a member of the optometric honors society and graduated with distinction

While at Pacific he was part of an Amigos Optometric Society volunteer trip to the West Bank and Gaza Strip performing vision examinations for hundreds of impoverished Palestinians. He hopes to travel abroad again to work with those in need of care in the poorer regions of the world. Dr. Hampel combines a healthy sense of humor and good nature with a passion for vision care.

Preparing for your Visit:

Prior to Your Appointment: Please complete and print the Patient history, HIPPA and payment policy forms even if you are an established patient. Once you have completed the forms, please bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.

Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.

The Day of Your Appointment:
Bring your current medical insurance card(s) with you.

  • The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit.
  • For charges not covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service. Prompt pay discounts are available on certain services. Please ask at the front desk.

As part of your examination with us today, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Some individuals also have difficulty seeing in the distance. The effects of the dilation can last several hours.
