Care Philosophy

At Jenkins Eye Care we hold true to our mission: to provide quality eye care using state-of-the-art technology in an ‘ohana setting. From the day we opened our doors in 1990 our goal has been to offer our patients the finest eye care in Hawai‘i.

Dr. Tyrie Jenkins is a nationally recognized eye surgeon and is a pioneer in the refractive surgery field. In 1997, Dr. Jenkins became the first surgeon in Hawaii to perform LASIK and most recently to utilize LenSx technology to perform blade-free laser cataract surgery.

The science of vision care is constantly evolving. Led by Dr. Tyrie Jenkins, our expert team continually studies the latest discoveries and trends. We pride ourselves on consistently staying ahead of the curve especially when it comes to investing in state-of-the-art technology.

In order to maximize surgeries whilst providing the best possible care we utilize a team strategy. Our team is made up of a highly trained group of specialists led by ophthalmologist and surgeon Dr. Tyrie Jenkins. Optometrists Dr. Loretta Ng and Dr. Jacqueline Ueda round out our elite squad.

We're trying something new with Top Care Areas.Was it helpful for you?YesNo

Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.
