Like you, we’ve been to big corporate eyewear chains. We know they promise great service and tend to fall short. That’s why we’ve dedicated Marin Optometry to delivering a different sort of experience. Anyone can sell you glasses; we’re here to give you your absolute best vision. At Marin Optometry, you’ll have the sort of relationship that means you know we won’t rest until you’re 100 percent satisfied.

We’ve had lots of practice at it. Dr. John Hoag first opened our office in 1937; as the first optometrist in Mill Valley, he personally saw to everyone in town who needed eye care, and he was a founding member of the town‘s chamber of commerce. From the 1960s through the ’90s, Dr. Gerald Belanger carried that legacy forward, modernizing Marin Optometry’s technology and investing deeply in the local community.

Since 2000, Dr. Channie Duhn and our chief optician, Sharon Segal, have kept Marin Optometry on the cutting edge of customer satisfaction. All our patients receive a full, comprehensive eye exam — and we‘re happy to serve you in English, Spanish, or Chinese. And we keep our customers in touch with the latest fashions and advances in eyewear, helping you find the glasses or lenses that most perfectly fit your eyes and your look.

We love our Bay Area home and our Mill Valley community. That’s why Marin Optometry supports many local social and cultural causes, including Kiddo, the Mill Valley Schools Community Foundation; the Mill Valley Film Festival; the Mill Valley Rotary Club; the Tam High Foundation; the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; the Mill Valley Chamber Music Society; and Rally for the Cure.
