Meet Dr. Hoff

When you’re looking for a vision center, you want to know more than the address of a building. Complete eye care ultimately depends on the training, expertise, and experience of the optometrist. That’s why you should make Hoff Optometry & Eyewear your family eye care center. Dr. Hoff is one of the mostly highly regarded optometrists in the Los Angeles area, and his office on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice is a great place to find the latest in designer eyewear and contact lenses.

Dr. Hoff graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1992. SCCO is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of optometry in the country.

Dr. Hoff immediately went to work with Stuart Grant, O.D., and Chuck May, O.D., two pioneers in the use of rigid gas permeable contact lenses. Hard Contact lenses can be used to mold and shape the eye, atechnique call orthokeratology. This technique can be used to reduce, or even eliminate myopia and astigmatism. Orthokeratology remains a popular eye care technique, and Dr. Hoff can draw on his years of experience with the procedure to serve his clients.

Another benefit of working with experts in orthokeratology for an extended period was the experience it gave Dr. Hoff in fitting contact lenses for hundreds of patients. The methods for successfully fitting lenses are as much an art as a science, and Dr. Hoff’s is proud to now offer the benefits of this experience to his customers.

There have been many advances in eye care in the last quarter century, and Dr. Hoff has been diligent in keeping up with the latest techniques in optometry. After working with Dr. Grant, he began working with Andrew I. Caster, M.D., a world-renowned LASIK surgeon. Dr. Hoff’s input in determining that precise prescription for programming the laser was crucial to the success of the practice. Dr. Hoff was prized for his attention to detail, an attribute that you’ll appreciate when you visit his practice.

Dr. Hoff was a longtime resident of Venice, and in 2010 he decided to open his private practice on fashionable Abbot Kinney Blvd. He turned to a longtime friend, architect David Spinelli, to design his office with an eye to modern sensibilities and client comfort. The result was a
triumph, with eye-catching integration of upcycled materials and LED lighting that makes it a pleasure to visit.

A beautiful office is only half the story of Hoff Optometry & Eyewear. An optometrist must have an eye for fashion as well as clear vision, and Dr. Hoff has filled his practice with a carefully curated collection of the finest designer eyewear available anywhere in the world.

Dr. Hoff relied on the input of two colleagues, Patty Perreira and Bill Barton, to help him choose his lines of eyewear. Patty is another Abbot Kinney resident, and one of the leading eyewear designers in the world. Bill was the president of the Optical Shop of Aspen, American luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples, and now Barton Perreira eyewear. Dr. Hoff feels that their input was instrumental in achieving the perfect blend of fashion and value for his customers.

Dr. Hoff is proud of his collection, and he’s proud to offer his clients complete eye care to go with the most stylish glasses frames in the Los Angeles area. His highly trained, friendly staff makes it fun to make your frame selections. Dr. Hoff is confident that you’ll walk out the door seeing well, and looking great.
