We appreciate the connections with our patients and enjoy providing the best optometry services, from routine eye exams and medical eye care to help in selecting the perfect pair of glasses. Eye care is our passion, and we want every part of your experience to be wonderful, professional and informative.

“different and unique”

Best selection of frames in the Rogue Valley. Very different and unique. People stop me everyday to compliment me on my glasses. The service is awesome and the eye exam is very thorough. The Hoyts are great to work with.


Kim and Mike have been in charge of my vision for almost 10 years, and Kate has kept me stylish in great frames. Love their new office, and selection of frames is the best around!

“truly a gem in the valley”

Artisan Eyeworks a truly a gem in the valley. Their facility is gorgeous. You feel like you're in a fine art gallery. The staff is great. Michael and Kim are super nice, but also very professional. Great service—they get you in and out in a timely manner. They have the latest technology. They have a unique selection of frames. What more do you want?

“highly recommend”

We have been patients of Dr. Michael Hoyt for over 5 years,his thorough exams, education and support are excellent. Artisan Eyeworks has created a knowledgeable, competent and caring team. We would highly recommend Dr. Michael Hoyt to any family member or friend with the utmost confidence.

“Everyone at Artisan Eyeworks is wonderful”

Everyone at Artisan Eyeworks is wonderful—they are courteous, efficient, have a great selection of eye wear, and best of all they have Dr. Michael Hoyt. Dr. Hoyt is very personable and, once you meet him, you feel relaxed and comfortable. When he starts using his equipment, you realize it is state-of-the-art. I've never had an easy glaucoma test. I hardly knew he was doing this one. He found exactly the right lenses for me.  I have never before put on a pair of glasses at the store, walked out and not had to go back for an adjustment, and often worse. These fit beautifully before I ever left and the lenses are perfect.  I love them and have received many compliments. So glad Artisan has come to Ashland!

“best optical experience in Ashland”

This has been our best optical experience in Ashand. Dr. Hoyt and his staff are very professional and friendly with state of the art technology. We will see you guys next year.

“best optician anywhere”

It's always nice to see professional people take the chance on a new endeavor. The Hoyt's have certainly made their chance work. The usual competent eye care, plus a good staff, including the best optician anywhere around.

“professional, very competent and very honest”

I went back for some eye tests and other work and can honestly say they are professional, very competent and very honest. They deserve all the support they can get.

“I feel safe, cared for, and...well, stylish”

The Hoyts and their staff are amazing! I'm thrilled to have Artisan Eyeworks in the neighborhood. They are friendly, attentive, and fun... I feel safe, cared for, and…well, stylish!

“It’s all good!”

Happy Practitioners, Happy Place, Happy Customers...it's all good!!

“Best ever experience”

Best ever experience getting a thorough eye exam, accurate prescription and stylish eyeglasses frames plus comfy fitting from a great team, whose knowledge, caring, and great sense of humor ( did I mention those kick in' stylish shoes?). Tricky to get this much satisfaction for my detailed Rx and added prism.

“Visit Artisan, meet the people, expect the best.”

We moved to the Rogue Valley in 1993, the same year that the Hoyts established practice here, and except for a few years in between, we've been with them ever since. As an engineer, I can appreciate dispassionate, objective, efficient healthcare but as a *person* I appreciate personality, professional excellence with depth and richness, and a more personal and expressive experience. I feel like I receive the best of both worlds with these practitioners. Visit Artisan, meet the people, expect the best.

“I love your new practice setting; it’s beautiful”

Thank you for all your care for me throughout these years and especially the most recent exam—WOW! I love your new practice setting; it's beautiful. Glad to be connected with you there.
