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.
Verified Patient Reviews
I've been coming to Dr. Kansky for 3 years. He has always provided a professional and thorough eye exam experience.
I felt extremely welcomed and that's what I absolutely loved.
Love coming here, super professional, always
He's a wonderful doctor, very knowledgeable and very personable. I feel I get the best possible care from Dr. Kansky and his office. I highly recommend!
Took a little long for a wait but he is a super cool and down to earth guy. Would definitely recommend.
an enjoyable appointment between the Dr and the front desk
Dr. Kansky was great to talk to. Obviously very knowledgeable about all things optical and contact lenses, and even answered a few of my stranger and more curious questions. Even walked away with some restaurant recommendations!
Dr. Kansky and his staff were terrific. The office is beautiful and very clean, they operate on new equipment and provided really help info during my annual check-up. I've worn contacts for more than 15 years but he shared more about the health of my eye than I've received before too.
Highly recommended. Very patient and thorough
I've been seeing Dr. Kansky for many years and I'm always satisfied with his care and knowledge.
The check-in process was smooth and the receptionist was extremely welcoming. After I filled out some simple paperwork, Dr. Kansky saw me right away. He was extremely friendly and informative throughout the exam. I'm generally squirmy during eye exams, but Dr. Kansky made me feel comfortable. Honestly, this appointment took away a lot of the anxiety I once had before going to an eye exam. I would recommend Dr. Kansky in a heartbeat.
Very professional and everyone in the office is so nice and helpful.
Such a nice and informative Dr! He was super friendly and explained to me along the way what he was doing and what it was for. Everyone at the office was very nice.

I have been going to Dr. Kansky for the past 20 years. Very professional and always has the latest equipment to test your eyes.
Dr. Kansky is a great professional. He is polite, compassionate and very efficient. I highly recommend him and Eyeshapes as a buisness if you need your eyes cared for.
Terrific team- from the doctor to the staff. Always helpful always accommodating and so pleasant! I come from NYC to Hoboken because I am so pleased with Dr.Kansky. I even have my parents going there for their eye checkups!
Very nice and helpful!
Both doctors at Eyeshapes are extremely knowledgeable and professional. I've been going here for over 15 years and have never had a negative experience. Their staff is very friendly and personable and I've never had to wait longer than 5 minutes from my appointment time. I highly recommend them.
Dr. Kansky was very informative and helpful, and went above and beyond, even providing his personal number in case I needed to reach him after hours. Can't say that about too many doctors nowadays.
I was very happy last year when I came for a visit and nothing has changed, but the location. They are still great doctors and the staff are friendly and attentive.
Great and very thorough eye doctor. His eye exams are incredible, he does more checks than most doctors and stays up to date with all the new technologies. highly recommend.

Great attention to detail. Everyone in the office is very friendly.
Great visit. Very thorough, kind, and explained everything in detail.
Amazing office, caring doctors, thorough and prompt. There is also a great selection of glasses and sunglasses. You can't ask for much more!
Dr. Kansky is professional and friendly.
Informative. He does not just perform an exam and send you on your way. He educates you on what he is performing and what he is looking to assure. I will continue to use him as my primary eye care physician.
He's so good I suggested my girlfriend visit him, she'll be doing so in a couple of days. I learned quite a lot from him about eyesight, eyewear manufacturers, etc. Very enjoyable visit overall, highly recommended.
Extremely professional thorough service.
Very friendly and thorough in his questioning/examination. Was also very open and knowledgable about insurance coverage costs. Highly recommend.
Great doctor! Everyone was very professional and helpful! Would recommend to anyone!
I had a great first visit with Dr. Kansy. He made me feel really comfortable and we had a good conversation through the whole eye exam. He made it easy for me to re-order my contacts and update my glasses. I highly recommend coming to his office and the staff was very friendly as well.
Dr. Kansky took my concerns seriously and gave a thorough examination. After investigation, thankfully, it turned out there was no need for worry, but he did formulate a strategy to prevent and deal with the minor symptom should it occur again. Great doctor, explained everything.
Great Dr. I really recommend him. Explained everything, any question that we just asked he answered.
Dr. Kansky is the best. His eye exams are always thorough, but more than that it's obvious that he really cares about his patients. The new office is great, too. I've had some eye problems recently and have seen the doctor more than usual and I've been able to get a spot on the block for every appointment that I've had.
Very pleasantly surprised. Great selection of frames with lots of help (and advice) in selecting them. I've been wearing glasses for 40+ years - best doc yet.
Great eye doctor and awesome selection of glasses! He's my go-to guy!
Dr. Kansky is awesome, will go to him every year.
Dr. Kanksy is very thorough, personable and very knowlegable!
Dr. Kansky is the best. Gives each patient his undivided attention. Very thorough exam. New office is very nice and much easier to find parking. That is saying a lot in Hoboken!
A very thorough examination and really shows concern for his patient. Answered all questions and explained conditions in great detail that allows his patient to comprehend their eye health status. Highly recommended!
He was professional, personal, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.
He is always thorough and asks questions. He also answers any that you might have. I will keep using him and his office. In addition, the staff is friendly and efficient.
Dr. Kansky is the best. The staff is great, the wait is never long. This is a very well run office and it shows! Highly Recommend!
A great visit, excellent doctor and would highly recommend him.
Super nice and honest. I've been told I needed glasses for my stigmatism for years and wore glasses that never seemed to help. Dr. Kansky volunteered the facts: I don't need glasses. Whoever told me I did just wanted me to buy expesnive lenses/frames. I appreciated his honesty as glasses NEVER helped me. Now I know why!
The best eye doctor ! Wonderful service and knowledge
I really appreciated that he listened to me, gave me several options and still convinced me to try lenses that I haven't had great luck with in the past. He had very reasoned arguments and did not make me feel like I was at fault for disliking the lenses in the past. He checked and double checked all the things that have been a concern with my sight in the past and made me feel like we were doing all the right things for my eye health. It was probably the best visit I've had in ten years.
Dr Kansky was great! I was about 10 minutes late and he still took me right in - did a thorough job and let me know of any potential issues that I might be on the look out for in the future. They also helped me to find the best options for glasses in my price range as I didn't have any insurance.
Very great thorough doctor . Very hands on and helpful ! Would go back again!
Very knowledgeable doctor. Staff is very friendly and helpful, I would definitely recommend Dr Kanasky to everyone!
Been going to Dr. Kansky for almost 2 years and would recommend him to anyone. Always a great experience and his staff is very friendly!
Been going here for a long time. I also get a very thorough eye examine and he takes the time to answer any questions I might have. The only negative I have to say is that I usually end up waiting at least 30 minutes before he sees me.
Great visit, he was extremely informative and easy to talk to. Would highly recommend
I thought they were great! Dr. Kansky was very informative and made me feel very welcome. I will definitely be a loyal patient for future visits to come!
Dr. Kansky was great - he explained each step of the exam and I felt that his recommendations for my vision correction were really tailored to my needs, and not some generic patient.
I met with Dr. Beverly Kansky, who was wonderful!! She was thorough, and provided thoughtful care during all aspects of my exam... even helping me with selecting stylish eye glasses. I would definitely see her again!
He was so patient and thorough with my ten year old daughter's exam - we will be going back again.
friendly staff doctor was knowlegable and no wait time! would definitely recomend
Always attentive, very nice. Both the staff and Dr.'s are really pleasant and very professional.
This office is very professional, clean and efficient. I was in and out rather quickly for my appointment with minimal wait times. The doctor explained everything he was doing and why, which I appreciated. This was my first visit to this office as I just relocated to the area. I have been going to the eye doctor for over 18 years, and have seen at least 7 different doctors during that time - this is one of the best experiences I have ever had.
Very professional and personable. Staff was easy going and friendly. The Dr. broke down information on the different tests and what they did, which I thought was good.
My wife and I went in for contacts, and they prescribed us the perfect fits. They are knowledgeable and have the experience and tech to make sure you get the right strength and fit for your eyes.
Great first experience with Dr. Kansky. Staff was also very helpful at check-in and during frames selection.
Not a bad wait time given that I came on a Saturday afternoon. Excellent service overall. Everything explained in detail.
Dr. Kansky is extremely knowledgable and friendly. He took the time to go over everything he was doing during my exam and was able to answer all of my questions. It was refreshing to have a doctor treat me as an equal rather than just another appointment he was trying to push out the door. I highly recommend him for all of your vision needs :)
Doctor Kansky is great, he takes his time with you and is thorough. I continue to make the trip to Hoboken because of the good care him and his wife provide.
I have multifocal lenses. Had visited Dr. Randy for a general check up to confirm my change in vision. He did a very thorough and accurate eye exam. Will definitely recommend him.
Dr. Kansky was extremely helpful, listening attentively to everything I said and providing superb explanations and advice during the entirety of my visit. Highly, highly recommend.
Dr Kansky is great. He spends time, is very thorough, professional and friendly. I would not use any other OD in Hoboken, he is the best.
Very pleasant visit, Randy was especially helpful with advice concerning eye care insurance and how to get the best deal on contact lenses and glasses. Will definitely recommend
He evaluated things that I have never seen on eye exams but are absolutely necessary. He took my needs into account before his and those of the manufacturers pushing product. Will most definitely return and highly recommend!
Dr Kansky was very friendly and personable. He explained everything thoroughly and was I felt he really cares about his patients.
Excellent! I was able to make an appointment same day. He took the time to explain everything. I can see great! I would recommend him to anyone!
Loved my visit with Dr Kansky. Very thorough exam and recommendations provided. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family.
Very nice and knowledgable. Explained things clearly and made sure I was comfortable.
Best eye doctors in NJ!! I've been going for years and now drive 40 minutes as the experience is worth it.
Everyone in the office is really nice and helpful. Not having to wait long for a doctors appointment in Hoboken is a rare thing but they manage to do it here.
Very personable and helpful when responding to questions and concerns I had.
Absolutely loved everything about Dr. Kansky & his staff!! Best eye doctor I think I've ever been to. He took time with me and I really felt he cared; he was thorough and didn't rush me through, but I also didn't feel he took too much time. I highly recommend them.
I was very happy with the quality of care. Dr. Kansky seems genuinely interested in his patients and takes his time to do a thorough job. The only negative feedback I have is that I had to wait for 30+ minutes before I was seen.
Perfect- pleasant staff and great dr.
Very professional and knowledgeable. Explained everything very well. Great choice of designer glasses.
An awesome doctor who does his job because he genuinely cares. I asked a million questions and he answered them all; great guy.
Always a positive experience with Dr. Kansky. After years as a glasses/contact patient, he later walked me through my Lasik procedure.
Great optometrist: works carefully, and his prescriptions are always excellent. A pleasure to visit.
He gave me the most thorough eye exam I've had in years! Great doctor and staff as well! Very glad I came across Dr. Kansky!
A true professional! Would recommend to anyone.
Dr. Kansky was GREAT! Both him and his office staff are very inviting in a warm office space. He's knowledgable, with some of the most high-tech equipment I've seen, and is truly a master at his craft. I've found my new eye doctor!
He was amazing! Broke everything down to me in a way that made sense. Very polite, kind and considerate. I look forward to going back
She was great! I was struggling to find the right prescription at another doctor and she took the time and was very through to make sure that it was correct and comfortable for me! The other staff members were very helpful and recommended lens thst were best for me and cheapest with my plan! I will definetially recommend to friends!
He was very knowledgable, thorough and informative. He listened. I never felt rushed. He made sure that all my concerns were addressed and my questions answered. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Kansky was very pleasant and gave a thorough but quick exam and got me a great deal on contacts.
Dr Randy Kansky is very patient and is knowledgable as he did thorough testing although it was my first eye consultation.
Great doctor. Very helpful with all of my questions.
Great Eye Doctor...have been going to Family Eye Care for years now and even when I skip a year, he always remembers me and my eyes and issues. He is a genuine person who really takes an interest in you (the patient). Highly recommend Randy and his wife, both are professional, current with the latest that is going on in the field. caring and never rush your appointment.
Very good optometrist. Knew what he was talking about and explained it all to me in a manner I understood.
He was fabulous and very knowledgeable!!
The staff, including the doctor, was super friendly and personable. The doctor was very pleasant and took the time to answer a couple of questions I had. I will definitely return to their office. I just wish they had a bigger inventory of designer frames. It seemed like I was only being directed to the non-designer brands.
Very knowledgeable, personable and professional. Highly recommend.
The picture on here is of a guy. Randy was a woman. So sweet, nice, and very good at her job!
Have been a patient of Dr. Kansky for nearly twenty years and would not trust anyone else with my eyes and as a lawyer I read for a living. I got my first prescription with him when I was in law school and would not go to another eye doctor. His professionalism and accurate diagnosis comforts any concerns I have had with my eyes over the years. His demeanor makes you feel as if you are seeing a friend once a year and relaxed rather than having to go to a doctor. Have recommended him to friends and they thank me for the introduction.
I've been going to Dr. Kansky's for years. Always professional. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
Dr. Kansky was fantastic. My fiance saw him first and thought he was great, so I went the next day and felt the same. He is incredibly thorough and makes good recommendations on products (contact lenses), without trying to sell you on the most expensive item out there. His office staff was great. I look forward to becoming a regular patient.
Super nice guy - would definitely use him again!
very thorough. he explained everything in a manner i would understand. very good experience
Friendly and professional , addressed all concerns and questions with through detail and empathy.
I thought Dr.Kansky was extremely nice when I went in for my appointment. He was friendly, thorough, the office was nice and clean, and he saw me immediately. Unfortunately I got a pair of glasses with the Rx Dr. Kansky gave me and they did not appropriately correct my vision. I needed to return the glasses, get a new Rx from another Dr. and get a whole other pair of glasses.
Everything about it was professional, and yet very laid back! Highly recommended!
I highly recommend Dr. Kansky! I only had to wait a few minutes, and then he took his time with me and was very thorough. He was also a very kind and sincere doctor.
Dr. Kansky was fantastic!!! Very thourough in explanations, in an understandable way!
The doctor was very professional but refreshingly pleasant. He had a positive vibe about him and made the appointment fly by. His employees were friendly and efficient!
Great doctor! He is very nice and friendly and also seemed very knowledgable. I was in and out within half an hour of getting there!
Very professional and helpful.
