About Dr. Randy Kansky

**ATTENTION PATIENTS: In order to make your visit quick and efficient, we encourage you to check-in online before your appointment. Please provide your subscriber ID when completing check-in forms.** Drs. Randy Kansky and Beverly Hochstadt-Kansky are natives of nearby Long Island. Dr. Randy Kansky did his undergraduate studies at The State University of New York at Albany, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Dr. Beverly Kansky attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. The doctors met in 1980 while studying optometry at The New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA. “The New England College of Optometry provided excellent clinical training in such areas as contact lens care, pediatric vision care and vision therapy for computer related eye strain.” After graduating as Doctors of Optometry in 1984 they returned to Long Island, both to get married, and to start their careers working in private practices in Huntington, NY and Middle Village, NY respectively. In 1986 Drs. Randy and Beverly came to Hoboken and revived Family Eye Care, a small optometry practice that had recently closed. By offering personal care and friendly, professional service, that modest practice rapidly grew. The office was moved in 1991 to its present location at 118 Washington St., and renamed Eyeshapes Hoboken. By continuing to offer superior care, state of the art equipment, a large optical boutique, and a friendly, knowledgeable staff, Eyeshapes Hoboken has become Hoboken’s premier optometric office.

Doctor Kansky was very professional while also making me feel super comfortable at the same time. He did a great job of explaining what he was doing and made sure I did not have any lingering questions. This seems small butits nice to feel like you are actually connecting with a doctor rather than just being another patient pushed through the exam as fast as possible. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back.

She was extremely nice and helpful! She took the time to look for contacts that I preferred rather than giving me the easiest option that fit my prescription. She also took time to talk through what we were doing, if anythingwas outside of my insurance plan and/or any questions I had.

I always dread going to the eye doctor because I simply believed that they just want my money when I all I needed is a prescription for my lenses. Dr. Kansky was the first person to ever give me insight onmy eye health and give me recommendations on contact lenses as well as glasses. I felt like I could trust him immediately because he explained everything so well. It was simply the first time in 20 years that I learnt something, that I'm trying something new because it's better for me and that I didn't feel like I'm just there to make the doctor money. Dr. Kansky - I will be back for sure! Thank you!

They are very prompt. I had an appointment at 12:30 but was running 10 minutes late. I called them to give a heads up and so they kept my file ready. Since I had already pre-filled my paperwork with Zocdoc. SoI was ushered after waiting for just under 2 minutes. This has been my third annual visit with them, and absolutely love them. Even though its a 30 minute drive for me.

A true doctor, not just in it for the sales. Not only does this offer great styles for Glasses, they have a doctor who is very precise and takes his time figuring out what your eyes need. He asks questions, givesexplanations and most importantly takes his time evaluating your eyes. He listens and gives feedback on whatever discomfort you feel. I've recommended 4 people, all 4 have stayed. The staff knows me by name. They are personable, kind and flexible with schedules/payments. Very classy. Love it here. Trust me and my 4 referrals , once your recieve treatment like this, you wont go to anyone else .
