After obtaining his O.D., he served as an optometrist for the U.S. Air Force, during which time he was also an adjunct clinical professor for Indiana University and the University of Houston.
Dr. Hamann makes productive use of his time away from his practice. He enjoys sharing his talents with those less fortunate, traveling on eye care mission trips with his wife to remote, underserved locations. Their work has taken them to many different parts of the world. He also enjoys mentoring young men at church, coaching his son’s baseball team, playing drums, and rollerblading and biking with his wife and their three children.
Dr. Hamann’s eye care experience as a child inspired him to pursue his career in optometry. He enjoyed going to the optometrist and having his prescription updated so that his vision was sharp again. In his words, “Sight is an amazing gift. It is a pleasure to be able to help others obtain and maintain good vision and eye health throughout their lives.” Helping others see more comfortably and clearly is the most rewarding part of his career at Northwest Eye.
