What Is an Oculus?

The Latin word “oculus” means “eye.” However, when referring to architecture, the term is used to describe a circular window or a round opening at the top of a dome. These architectural structures have a circular or oval shape, similar to an eye.

Why Choose Oculus for a Name?

For Oculus Realty, LLC founder K. David Meit, CPM®, when it came to naming his property management company, he found his inspiration in his favorite space in the world: the Pantheon.

Almost two thousand years after being built as a temple to the gods of Ancient Rome, the Pantheon still has the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome. The structure’s dome has an oculus that opens to the sky.
