Dr. Candace (Paul) Hoff was born and raised in Dickinson and has been providing eyecare to her hometown since 2008. She graduated from Dickinson High School in 2001 and attended Jamestown College until she was awarded early acceptance at Pacific University’s College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon.
During her four years of optometry school, one of Dr. Hoff’s most rewarding experiences was providing eyecare at the Landstuhl Regional Army Medical Center in south central Germany for our brave men and women in uniform. Now back home in southwest North Dakota Dr. Hoff takes great pride in providing eyecare for the area’s military veterans.
Dr. Hoff sees patients of all ages, but especially enjoys caring for infants, children and young adults. Dr. Hoff knows that many vision and eye problems occur early in life, therefore she performs vision screenings on infants at no cost. Dr. Hoff also prides herself on making her eye exams very informative for her patients. During an exam with Dr. Hoff you will learn about your eyesight, the health of your eyes and how to protect your vision.
If you have questions about your vision, a health concern related to the eyes, or different options for eyeglasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery Dr. Hoff would be happy to visit with you and together determine the best option for you and your lifestyle.
When not talking about eyes or vision you can find Dr. Hoff at home feeding cows or tending to peppers and squash in her garden. Dr. Hoff and her husband, Casey, farm and raise cattle in the Richardton area. Dr. Hoff takes great pleasure in caring for their Hereford cows and F1 baldy calves and looks forward to raking hay each summer. Don’t be surprised if you see her in the office wearing cowboy boots on Fridays!
