Our Eye Doctor

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet Our Doctor:

Dorothy N. Hinkley, O.D. MS


Dr. Hinkley earned her doctorate degree at the UC Berkeley School of Optometry following a 14-year career with the U.S. Navy (seven years active duty, seven years Navy Reserve). She completed her residency at the Northport VA Medical Center before assuming her current position at Arden Howe Optometry.

Since 2010, Dr. Hinkley has served on the clinical faculty at UC Berkeley while contributing extensive research toward the development of new rehabilitation techniques for disorders of the eye that were previously untreatable in adults. Her role as both teacher and researcher demonstrate her ongoing commitment to advancing the quality of care available to her own patients, as well as patients worldwide.
