James Hoover, O.D.

About Dr. Hoover

James Hoover, O.D. received his Doctor of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2016 and earned a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, with a minor in Philosophy, from Louisiana State University. He spent several years working with the Children’s Eye Center of Baton Rouge where he fostered a deep love for eyecare.

While at Southern College of Optometry, Dr. Hoover was active with Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity (SVOSH), and traveled to Mexico, Haiti, Belize, and Colombia, performing eye exams and dispensing glasses to underserved areas. Dr. Hoover was also awarded the Outstanding Clinician Award by Southern College of Optometry’s staff doctors and supervisors.

In practice since 2016, Dr. Hoover has always been fascinated with the eyes and their functions in our lives. At the age of 8 or 9, he was diagnosed as being colorblind. Soon after, he began borrowing the colorblind testing book from his family eye doctor, and he would use it to test students in his school to find others like himself for science projects.

Dr. Hoover loves the satisfaction of knowing that his patients leave seeing and feeling their very best and enjoys helping them have a greater understanding of their refractive and ocular health status. He says it is always a treat to see the smiles on his patients' faces when they get their new prescriptions filled and experience clearer vision.

When not in the office, Dr. Hoover enjoys spending his free time with his girlfriend, Kelly, and his dog, Izzy, as well as pursuing an active life
