General Eye Exams and Problem-Focused Consultations

Medina Eye offers comprehensive annual checkups as well as care for any issues involving your eyes. At our downtown Bellevue office, within walking distance of the Bellevue City Park and central to the Greater Seattle area, you’ll find a friendly, unrushed atmosphere where you’ll get highly personalized attention. 

Unlike most other ophthalmology practices and large-chain vision centers, you won’t be meeting with a technician for most of your visit. We’re committed to providing you with exceptional quality care, which can only come from a licensed ophthalmologist, a medical doctor specialized in care of the eyes and visual system and their multitude of interconnections with the body.

Our full attention is given to one patient at a time, providing privacy, security and environmental safety in a unique setting. As a new patient, Dr. McMillan will spend 60-90 minutes with you to thoroughly examine your eyes and discuss his findings.

He will be 100% focused on you, with no other patients waiting in the room next door to distract him. Using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and the latest treatment protocols, you’ll get expert medical care for the long-term health of your eyes.

Emergency Eye Care Services

As our patient, if you ever have an eye care emergency such as an infection, injury or other urgent issue, you can contact us 24/7 for immediate assistance. We don’t recommend waiting, as that can increase your risk of vision impairment. 

Dr. McMillan will personally call you back any time of the day or night. We are here for you when you need us. (Registered patients only please.)

Leading-Edge Technology and Treatment

Medina Eye is very much a 21st century eye-care practice. Dr. McMillan is a Harvard-trained ophthalmologist, first-time certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1995. He has invested heavily in state-of-the-art technology and stays current on the latest treatments. 

We have many patients who come to us seeking answers for conditions other eye doctors haven’t been able to solve. Using our progressive tools, experience and extensive research—something at which Dr. McMillan excels—we can diagnose and successfully treat most issues.


Contact Lens Evaluation, Prescriptions and Troubleshooting

Enjoy the freedom contact lenses provide! Today, you have more choices than ever before in types of lenses, brands and prescriptions. 

We’ll start with a thorough examination of your eyes to determine the best options for you and for your lifestyle. You’ll have an opportunity to try different lenses to see which ones feel the most comfortable. 

We'll give you detailed, personal training in how to properly insert, remove and care for your new contact lenses. If you experience any issues with your new prescription contact lenses, we’re always here to help. Call us today for a contact lens evaluation at our Medina Eye office serving the Greater Seattle area.

Jason P

Top-of-the-line equipment

I love this doctor! He is very knowledgeable, and has top-of-the-line equipment. No dilation drops necessary for retinal exam. That alone is a godsend. He has a really cool camera setup to record images of the retina, which are stored on the computer so he can compare year-to-year. Complete eye exams, glasses and contact lens prescriptions.

Highly recommend

Dr. McMillan is excellent – knowledgeable professional. Highly recommended!


Cares about his patients

Dr McMillan is very detailed and cares about his patients. He keeps great records and has an excellent rapport with everyone. He helped me transition from glasses to contacts at the age of 55!
