BVC HISTORY

Bellevue Vision Clinic is the oldest eye clinic on the eastside of the greater Seattle area and has been providing exceptional eye care for over 70 years. We take pride in serving our community and continuing the tradition of building strong relationships and have fifth generation patients. Dr Littlefield founded Bellevue Vision clinic in 1950 and Dr Robert Glaze “Dr Bob” took over the practice in 1980.

As the practice grew, Dr Clayton joined Bellevue Vision Clinic in 2000 and became a partner. As Dr. Bob began to take more time off in 2010 we welcomed Dr. Nermeen Hamza to the practice, who became 50/50 partner with Dr Clayton in 2013. Dr Bob retired in 2015 to pursue his passion of travelling around the world, playing Bocce, and enjoying the Italian language and culture.
