MY MOTTO: EYECARE IS PERSONAL.
“When someone experiences changes in vision, or struggles with glasses or contact lenses, it is not uncommon for them to feel frustrated or overwhelmed. My passion is vision without boundaries. Meaning I know that no single approach is the right one for every patient, and I've been trained in a range of modalities and approaches to treatment. I help my patients by providing thorough examinations and assessments, followed by thoughtful discussions about treatment options and the right solution for them. I can't imagine eyecare any other way – precise, professional, personal.”
Dr. Hargrove grew up in Reno, Nevada. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada. Dr. Hargrove continued his education at Pacific University, College of Optometry where he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree, graduating with distinction.
EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
Dr. Hargrove's passion for optometry began early in his career. During his undergraduate education, Dr. Hargrove took his first step into the world of optometry by working at a private practice in Sparks, NV, and earning his Certified Paraoptometric (CPO) certification. Later on, with the desire to broaden his experience, he worked as an optician. This experience serves him well in the exam room today. He has a unique understanding and appreciation of the technical aspects and practical application of lenses – for both glasses and contact lenses, allowing him to prescribe effective solutions for any visual tasks that his patients may have.
In addition, Dr. Hargrove has training specific to primary care, diagnosis, and management of ocular disease, as well as specialty contact lenses.
Dr. Hargrove has been a regular visitor to Boise for most of his life, falling more in love with the area each time he found himself here. Following graduation from Pacific University, College of Optometry Dr. Hargrove decided he wanted Boise to be his forever home. In his spare time Dr. Hargrove enjoys all that our foothills have to offer – from hiking, to golfing, to skiing. When summer heats up you'll find him floating the river, out on the links, or taking in all of the wonderful restaurants and activities that Boise has to offer.
