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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
