About Us

Dr. Langille and Dr. Tam first met when practicing together with a San Francisco eye surgeon. Since then, they have always respected each other’s professional and personal values. So, it was the most natural move for Dr. Tam to join Through the Hayes Optometry in June 2007. In May 2011, they made it official and are now business partners! After 10 years in solo practice, Dr. Langille is very grateful for the new-found energy and thoughtful input from Angela. With shared goals and like-minded focus on patient care, their partnership brings a great synergy to Through the Hayes Optometry.

Therese loves working with children and has performed thousands of screenings on children’s eyes across the entire Bay Area. She has traveled to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines and Guatemala to do volunteer eyecare work with several organizations. She also believes strongly in giving back to the local community. Her latest passion is working with Project Homeless Connect in San Francisco. Therese’s green initiatives include sourcing local vendors and creating a paper-less office.

Dr. Angela Tam

Every September, you will find her running (or walking) at Race For The Cure, a cause near and dear to her family.


Greg Oldham

After graduating from Pacific University near Portland, OR with a B.S. in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, Greg landed in the world of optics and lens manufacturing. The optical lab taught him the nuts and bolts of lenses and progressive designs. When he’s not digging deeper into optics, Greg is always traveling and looking for his new favorite beer, band or podcast-now, with his new wife, Heather!

With an interest in personal, intuitive healthcare and a fascination with optics, he has found a niche at Through The Hayes. Erwin plans to pursue a career in optometry and turn from optician to O.D. When he’s not in Hayes Valley fitting designer eyewear, Erwin is exploring the city either by foot or on two wheels.
