Broadway Vision Source was established by Dr. Matsunami in 1983, and originally located on Broadway across from Dick's Drive-In in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Foreseeing demolition of the building that we were in to make way for Sound Transit's Underground Light Rail Station on Broadway, we relocated to our present location on East Pike St. in 1999.
Dr's. Matsunami and Nakatsu are both natives of Hawaii who have long since become enveloped in the diversity and excitement of Seattle, yet embrace the "aloha spirit" of caring, and giving back to our community. We are humbled by the loyalty of our patients, and share mutual respect of our colleagues in and around the Seattle area. We are very fortunate to have a cast of caring staff members who are similarly dedicated to surpassing your expectations of excellence in eyecare from us.
We have grown to become one the largest optometric practices in Seattle based upon our dedication to providing excellence in comprehensive, personalized vision care for all of our patients.

Quite simply the best Optometry office I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Their technology is relatively up-to-date and the doctors are kind, caring, and preeminently knowledgeable.
Everybody at Broadway Vision Source is very friendly. The only thing was they rewrote the contact lens prescription I gave them and charge me for it. There is nothing changed for contact lens prescription. So, if you already have prescription for contacts and do eye exam there, just get normal eye exam without contact lens prescription.
My doctor Is amazing, she is calm and cool and makes the experience very easy. Also, the gentleman who helped me pick out my frames the first time I came in is very knowledgeable about face shape and what looks good on you. My family works in health care and I felt like my optometrist in the past was great, but this place is so much more inviting and really captures the progressive feel of the city.
I am immensely grateful for Dr. O"Neill, Christie and Joy and the oasis they provide at Backfire Chiropractic. Since I've been receiving treatment from Dr. O'Neill, I have noticed a significant difference in my mobility, flexibility and overall well-being. Old injuries aren't haunting me as they used to. I feel good in my body and lighter in my step thanks to Dr. O'Neill and the incredible massage services available at Backfire Chiropractic. I started going to the office for massage treatments with Kenneth and now wish I would have started long ago with Dr. O'Neill in addition to the massage treatments. I am thrilled to have found such beneficial practitioners. I highly recommend!
