It all started with a conversation at dinner with friends in the fall of 2009. Drs. Chin and Taketa were sharing ideas about creating a practice where they could balance their love of optometry while also having the flexibility to spend time with their growing families. City Eyeworks opened in June 2010 and has the joy of serving patients in the NE neighborhoods of Ravenna, University District, Laurelhurst, Bryant, Wedgewood and beyond. We strive to build a collaborative relationship with our patients to achieve their vision goals.
