Our Logo

A Symbol Of What We Provide For Our Patients

The Ohia tree is the focus of our logo because of it is a symbol of strength, reliability, and versatility. With a tenacious adaptability to adapt to extreme climates from deserts to rainforests, the Ohia delivers beauty and promise through a colorful variety of flowering blossoms.

With the Ohia as an inspiration, Eye Care Hawaii provides outstanding eye care in an ever-evolving health care environment. We help our patients see their world with greater clarity and vibrancy by maintaining ocular health and providing appropriate vision correction. In addition to offering the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options, our well-trained, responsive, and professional staff also delivers a wide range of services, including general family eye care, eye medication prescriptions, complete optical dispensing, and more.

Like the Ohia, Eye Care Hawaii is here to provide strength, reliability, and versatility to the wonderful people of Hilo and beyond.
