Eye exam

We provide an in-depth examination of your vision and eye health using up to date technology. We feel its important to take time to find the best solution for your lifestyle.

Diagnosis & monitoring

Your examination will involve accurate measurements of your vision and eye health so that we can monitor for dry eyes, glaucoma, macula degeneration and other eye diseases.

Red eyes & foreign body removal

We are trained to remove foreign bodies, and can prescribe medications for red eyes, infections and allergies. Call us if you have any concerns with eye pain or vision.

Children's vision

Don’t forget your child’s vision is very important when it comes to life long learning. If you have concerns over learning troubles, we advise an examination to rule out any vision difficulties.

Spectacle frames

Our staff are here to help and advise you on your prescription and choices. We can also offer repairs and ultrasonic cleaning for those hard to get to places on your frames.

Contact lenses

These offer a great alternative for all types of prescriptions. They offer freedom from glasses. Call us to see if they are right for you.

``Great service from KCO. They are a little more pricey than some large chain optometrists but you definitely get what you pay for. Bruce was a relaxed and knowledgeable guy who I felt comfortable with immediately. Recommend to all.``

``The Optometrists here are friendly and very professional, they offer reasonable pricing and provide good recommendations to suit your needs. Highly recommended!``
