Oregon Eye Specialists Reports Breach of Email

There’s “no evidence to suggest actual or attempted misuse of information,” but the practice is taking precautions.




Oregon Eye Specialists in Portland has reported a data breach involving emails.

The practice “identified unusual activity in an email account and immediately launched an investigation,” according to a notice on its website.

The review determined that someone accessed certain accounts between June 29 and Aug. 31.

The practice explained: “Although we have no evidence to suggest actual or attempted misuse of information as a result of this incident, we are notifying potentially impacted individuals.”

Oregon Eye Specialists has six locations in Portland and a staff that includes ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians.

More from the notice:

The types of information potentially impacted varies by individual but includes name and one or more of the following data elements: date of birth, date of service, medical record number, financial account information, and/or health insurance provider name/policy number.

Upon discovering this incident, we reset account passwords and implemented additional security measures to further protect information. We are also providing potentially impacted individuals with access to credit monitoring and identity protection services as an added precaution. If you have questions about this incident or would like to enroll in the credit monitoring and identity protection services, please call 855-675-3076, Monday through Friday from 6 am- 6 pm PST. You may also write to us at 6420 S. Macadam Avenue, Suite 160, Portland, Oregon 97239.

In general, we encourage potentially impacted individuals to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing credit reports/account statements and explanation of benefits forms for suspicious activity and to detect errors. Under U.S. law, individuals are entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus, TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. To order your free credit report, visit or call 1-877-322-8228.

Individuals have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on a credit file at no cost. If individuals are a victim of identity theft, they are entitled to an extended fraud alert lasting seven years. As an alternative to a fraud alert, they have the right to place a “credit freeze” on a credit report. The credit freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved without consent. Pursuant to federal law, individuals cannot be charged to place or lift a credit freeze on your credit report.
