Dr. Samantha Hamblet, owner and optometrist at Eye Love Optometry, is excited to continue to serve the greater Olympia and Dupont WA area.

The entire staff at Eye Love Optometry regularly take the time to truly get to know our patients as the unique person that they are and try to treat their situations with the same custom-tailored care. We strive to help you to see and look your best, look out for your eyes like they were our own, and get to know YOU as a person. We see, hear and pay attention to our patients, allowing them to feel comfortable and less stressed about their optical health.
