It has been often said that our eyes are our windows to the world. Their importance in our day to day lives is absolutely undeniable. They help guide us throughout our daily lives, and work with our other senses to experience and interact with the world around us.
Our eyes truly are a blessing, yet we often take them for granted. Shouldn’t we protect such an essential gift? Even if we believe that our vision is clear, we still need our eye health assessed.
At Peterborough Optometric, they take patient care very personally. As educated and skilled as their doctors and staff are, what really stands out is that they are also truly great people who care about the patients they serve daily and the community where they live.
Owned and operated by Dr. Joe Hoja, the practice initially opened in East City in 1988 when frames were thick and lenses were even thicker. In 1993, the practice officially became known as Peterborough Optometric Centre and moved to a Lansdowne St. location before finding its current home in 2009 on Clonsilla Ave.
Owner Dr. Joe Hoja
If your memory tricks you into sensing the faint smell of pasta when you walk in the door, it’s not just you, because they’re located at the historic Spaghetti House location.
In three decades, Peterborough Optometric has grown immensely in both physical area and staff size. What use to be a staff of just Dr. Hoja plus one has now blossomed into a staff of three optometrists and 20 highly skilled and trained staff members.

In fact, Peterborough Optometric has more Certified Optometric Assistants (16) than any clinic in the Kawarthas. With such a large and educated staff, the well-equipped office is able to do just about everything on site before your very eyes (pun intended).
They’ll greet you with a friendly smile and a warm pot of coffee when you walk in the door before they get to work giving you clear sight and preserving your eye health.
