Dr. Nathan Hind’s desire to become an optometrist stems from his childhood. At a young age he was near-sighted. His optometrist gave him the ability to see clearly and perform to his full potential. This experience made him want to help others the same way he was helped. “The world is a beautiful place, and people should be able to appreciate it as clearly as possible,” he said. On his spare time, Dr. Hinds loves spending time with his family and friends. His second love is motorsports, especially motorcycles and vintage muscle cars.

I was very pleased with the entire visit
April 14, 2021
the experience is one of anxiety and not comparable to normal situations caused by the pandemic. All of the staff and doctor wore masks and required all patients to wear masks which is a very good policy these days. I believe the office facilities that the patient comes in contact with are cleaned after every patient. I do not know. Too many patients were in the waiting area when I was there 3 or 4 in a small room space sequestered to either see the prelim-treatment staff person, the doctor, and optician staff. The fact that everybody dutifully wore masks is important in this kind of situation although I felt there was too much waiting in place under those conditions. I regret that I did not talk to the doctor more questions to clarify better his findings.

I've been seeing Dr. Hinds as my eye care optometrist for several years, and I think he gives excellent care. He's most courteous and respectful but he's very, very thorough and points out things I've needed to do and things I need to watch out for, with my eyes. And I really appreciate his health care very much.

Front office staff was extremely nice, the girl that helped me picked out my new glasses was the best she gave me good advice and even helped me pick between one I was debating on which I loved, she didn't act like she was trying to sell the different products she was genuinely listening to what I wanted and helped in every way. The doctor was super nice listened to everything I had to say, I was very comfortable. I was a first time patient and I felt like I had been going to him for years! Definitely coming here from now on.
