Get Personalized Care From a Local Optometrist
Primary Eye Care connects patients with a full spectrum of eye care and vision health services. Patients who have an appointment with an optometrist will see Dr. Gary Christianson or Dr. Matthew Hoppe.
Introducing Our Eye Care Doctors
Optometrists specialize in eye health, vision, and eye disease diagnosis and treatment. These doctors often work together with healthcare providers in other fields to deliver a full scope of services aimed at preserving health and safeguarding vision. We are pleased to have two outstanding professionals heading up our care team.
- Dr. Matthew Hoppe is a Primary Eye Care partner and works as a board certified optometrist in our Litchfield and Hutchinson locations. With a professional background including BS Visual Science and Doctor of Optometry at Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR and internships at the Mayo Health in Albert Lea and Rochester, MN, and the VA Medical Center in Portland, OR, Dr. Hoppe brings an exceptional standard of eye health care and management to our patients. His hobbies include golfing, running, and watching boys football, hockey and lacrosse.
- Dr. Abby Taffe is a Primary Eye Care associate and works as a board certified optometrist in our Litchfield and Hutchinson locations. She is new to the area and is excited to get involved and become part of the close-knit community. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, where she was on the women’s hockey team. She went on to complete her Doctor of Optometry degree at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. She takes a special interest in primary care, ocular disease, contact lenses, and sports vision.
Primary Eye Care Services
In addition to comprehensive eye exams, optical/contact lens evaluations, and contact lens fittings, our optometrists also provide Lasik consultation to patients considering this course of treatment. These consultations give patients the opportunity to get personalized answers to their questions. Since LASIK is not a perfect solution for every vision concern, an evaluation is typically required before surgery can be scheduled.
