Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as counsel for Microvision, Inc. (the "Company"), in
connection with the filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the
"Registration Statement") under the Securities Act of 1933 covering an aggregate
of 268,600 shares of Common Stock, no par value, of the Company (the "Shares").
We have reviewed the corporate action of the Company in connection with this
matter and have examined such documents, corporate records, and other
instruments as we have deemed necessary for the purposes of this opinion.

Based upon the foregoing, it is our opinion that the Shares are duly
authorized, validly issued, and fully paid and nonassessable.

We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the
Registration Statement.

Very truly yours,
