To Our Dear Patients,

After an unsuccessful 6 year search for a buyer and additional doctor staffing, I have made the sad but unavoidable decision to close FirstView Eye Care Associates effective September 30, 2023.  I have contacted most local eye care offices and most will see new patients.  Our complimentary (free) patient portal will provide the means for you to view, save, and/or print your exam and prescription records from our office, if desired.  


– The patient portal can be found at or by clicking the “Patient Portal” tab at the top of this page

– If you have forgotten your username, it is most likely your email address

– If you have forgotten your password, it can be reset by a) selecting the “Forgot Password” link, and then b) entering your username on the next page.  The system will then send a password reset link to the email address associated with your patient record.

Password reset 1


Password reset 2– In the event of challenges with the above, please contact  Importantly, this team will be providing assistance gaining access to the patient portal and not responding to requests for records.

– Once logged into the patient portal, active glasses and contact lens prescriptions can be found and printed within the “orders” tab at the top of the screen:


– Exam data can be viewed, printed, or e-mailed within the “appointments” tab at the top of the screen.  Note that the “History” section of this page allows you to see all exams (via “view all”) or filter the list to a desired time range (via entering “Start Date” and “End Date”):



– Function summary

  • view: allows you to view the associated information
  • download: allows you to save the associated information in human-readable format to your device and printed, if desired
  • download xml: allows you to save the associated information in computer-readable format.  This could be useful to your next provider as it can be used to easily add your historical data to their EHR system.
  • transmit: allows you to send your information via email


A heartfelt “Thank You” to you all for your confidence and support in allowing me and my staff to provide for your eye care needs over the past and way-too-quick 43 years.  We are most grateful!


Charles W. Paepke, OD
