About Us

Eye Associates Northwest is the combination of two successful Seattle group ophthalmology practices: Eye Associates of Seattle and the Eye Clinic of Seattle.


Rooted in the Pacific Northwest for over 80 years

Eye Associates of Seattle and the Eye Clinic of Seattle had roots in practices established by individual physicians in the 1930s. Dr. H. Frederick Thorlakson opened his office in the Cobb Building in 1931, specializing in eye, ear, nose, and throat. Dr. Carl D. Jensen began his ophthalmology practice in the Medical Dental Building in 1934. Eye Associates Northwest, PC was later incorporated in Seattle in 1993, after the two groups merged.
