Dr. Palmer and Dr. Kurita met as  classmates at Pacific University College of Optometry in 2006.  


After graduation, Dr. Palmer served in the US Navy for 5 years at Pearl Harbor and in North Carolina.  He and his family returned to Portland in 2015 where he joined Fremont Family Vision.


Dr. Kurita first went to practice in Astoria, OR before moving to Texas to be closer to family. He missed the Northwest and ended up back in Portland. When Dr. Zelada retired in 2016,  Dr. Kurita joined the practice as co-owner.


our practice

The clinic was started by Dr. Blumberg in the 1960s. It was originally located on Union Ave, now MLK Blvd. The current location on Fremont Street was established in the 1970s.  Dr. Zelada became the owner in 1990 and he developed a reputation for delivering welcoming and compassionate care to all. He also expanded the clinic into geriatric care at Providence Elder Place facilities.  Today, Dr. Palmer and Dr. Kurita maintain the Fremont Family Vision tradition of providing quality care to the neighborhood and greater Portland.
