Congrats to Dr. Paul Hottel on his retirement! Today, April 21st, will be his last day at Eye Associates. Paul joined Eye Associates in 1982. Paul’s Great Uncle Jim founded Eye Associates in 1937 and Paul’s father, Phillip Hottel, later joined 1948. His daughter Elisabeth is currently an optometrist in Las Cruces, New Mexico.(Elisabeth - we are ready whenever you want to move back!😉) Tomorrow will be the first time without a Hottel optometrist on staff in Eye Associate’s 84 year history. We are forever grateful for the Hottel family’s time and dedication to the profession of optometry and Eye Associates. Enjoy your retirement Paul...exam room 6 will always be available for a nap! 😀 Please share any stories or well wishes you have for him!

Our Story

The focus of Eye Associates of Iowa City is to provide the best possible professional eyecare with quality service to each individual. Our philosophy is not one of "fitting you with glasses", but rather to ensure that your vision and eye health needs are met in a professional and caring manner.

Did you know that your eyes reveal insight regarding your overall health? In fact, your eyes provide early detection for many different diseases that can affect more than just your vision! That's why during your regularly scheduled eye health evaluation, we routinely perform comprehensive eye health tests that look for signs and symptoms of many different diseases, not just eye diseases. If discovered early, eye conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and even heart disease may be manageable. That is why it is so important to leave your total eye care to eye care professionals.

To serve the outlying communities we maintain Optometrists in Williamsburg, Kalona, Coralville, North Liberty, Iowa City and West Liberty, Iowa. Stop in today and see why we have earned our reputation of excellence in eye health care and patient satisfaction!
