About Us

Hill Opticians has been a  Hanover tradition since 1947.  We offer a full range of optical services from exams and filling prescriptions to ordering contacts and selling non-prescription items such as sunglasses, Croakies, and more.  We also offer eye glasses repair free of charge!

Ranald Hill founded Hill Opticians in 1947. It was the first optical shop in Hanover.  Ranald was politically  active in New Hampshire,  fighting for laws for opticians and for consumers.  Among other things he worked to enact legislation to require prescriptions to be given to customers.  Ronald Hill took over from Ranald and continued with the Hill Opticians tradition of quality service.  Robert Musante, head optician, worked with Ranald for 12 years until his death in 1997.

Robert became the owner of Hill Opticians in 1996 and continues the commitment to the Upper Valley and the community begun in 1947.
