About Dr. Hashimoto

Dr. Layne Hashimoto partnered with Dr. Timothy Lee when they opened the Eye Care Center of Kauai in 2007. Since then patients of all ages have come to rely on Dr. Hashimoto’s compassionate care and expertise in a range of medical and surgical eye care services, including refractive surgery and vision therapy.

Dr. Hashimoto was born and raised on Kauai, where he graduated from Kauai High School before temporarily leaving the island to attend Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. After graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Visual Science, he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree from Pacific University College of Optometry, then went on to complete externships in primary care, ocular disease, refractive surgery, vision therapy, and contact lenses.

Dr. Hashimoto worked for the Heritage Vision Center in Beaverton, Oregon, until he decided it was time to return home to Kauai. He joined Dr. Timothy Lee as part of the Kauai Medical Clinic in 2003, then they decided to go into private practice and opened the Eye Care Center of Kauai.

When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Hashimoto enjoys spending time with his wife, Lindsay, and their 3 children, Lauryn, Brooke, and Blake. He’s an avid sports fan who loves playing golf, basketball, and tennis.

Dr. Hashimoto is passionate about the success of the Eye Care Center of Kauai. He’s always excited to hear ideas on improvements or advancements that would make the patient experience even better. He can be reached by email at lhashimoto@ecckauai.com.
