King Country Optometrists.

Your trusted local optometrists.

Our aim is to give you the best solutions for your lifestyle along with extensive checks of your eye health with a comprehensive eye examination.

Bruce set up the practice late 2007 and his wife Nicola has joined him in Te Kuiti. You will also find Bruce in Taumarunui once a week. They have extensive experience in Optometry starting their practicing life in Christchurch followed by Hamilton and now serving the King Country. When not working you may see them on their bikes or tramping particularly now that both kids have flown the coop. 


What our customers say
about our clinic.

Great service from KCO when they visited Taumarunui. 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!
