Dr. Isaac Kaopua Jr. was born and raised in Waimanalo, Hawaii. He graduated from Kalani High School and later attended Pacific University where he earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in French and a Bachelors of Science degree in Visual Science. From Pacific University College of Optometry he earned a Doctorate of Optometry degree. He later attended University of Hawaii at Manoa where he earned a Masters of Human Resource Management degree.
Utilizing his Masters of Human Resource Management degree, Dr. Kaopua owned and operated his own thriving private practice. His years in private practice earned him his reputation as a business leader in the field and an efficient and compassionate eyecare provider to his patients. To the dismay of his loyal patients, after 31 years of owning, operating, and managing his own practice, Dr. Kaopua went into “retirement” and closed his private practice doors in late 2015. His “retirement” was short-lived. Dr. Kaopua joined Hawaii Vision Associates in early 2016.
Dr. Isaac Kaopua Jr. is a much loved and respected practitioner. Hawaii Vision Associates is honored to have Dr. Kaopua apart of our family. With over 30 years of expertise in the field, he has developed a comprehensive approach to eye and vision care.
In his free-time, Dr. Kaopua enjoys playing the guitar, singing and collecting sports memoribilia. When he’s not riding his motorcycle through Waimanalo or traveling the world, Dr. Kaopua can be found doing his most favorite actvity, spending time with his ohana.
