Riley F. Nakatsu, O.D.
To all of the patients that I have served at Broadway Vision Source through the years:
After practicing optometry for the past 38+ years, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter in my life. The world seems to be constantly changing and I would like to take the time to enjoy some of it while I’m able. Many years ago I left Hilo, Hawaii to attend college on the West Coast and never returned. A slower pace of life like that I left behind in Hilo now seems to have greater appeal.
My career in optometry has been fulfilling. Helping patients with their visual solutions by discussing treatment options was always important to me since what works for some may not work for others. The most enjoyable part of my career has been the trust and friendships that have developed over the years through conversations during exams about things like work, life, and family. For some families, these children are now adults who are bringing in their own children!
Though I may be leaving the practice, Broadway Vision Source will remain as it has been, under the guidance of Dr. Matsunami, and the majority of eyecare provided by our extremely capable associate optometrists, Vinayak Ravuri, O.D., and Charles Srisatayasunton, O.D.
In conclusion, I would just like to thank all of my patients for having the trust in me to be their vision care provider. You’ve helped me have a wonderful career. Best wishes to all of you!
Riley Nakatsu, O.D.
