Warwick, Rhode Island (October 10, 2017) – Koch Eye Associates, a CLARIS VISION® company, hosted a ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony for its new, 6,000 square-foot family eye care center, located at 615 Greenwich Ave, Warwick, RI.  Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian was on-hand to celebrate the occasion, as well as many local dignitaries and elected officials.

“Koch Eye Associates was established nearly 40 years ago, growing from a modest office on Toll Gate Road and a staff of three people, to a practice that today boasts more than 50 doctors in one of the largest eye care practices on the East Coast,” said Mayor Scott Avedisian. “Yet, even as they continued to expand their business and become leaders in the field, they have never forgotten their Warwick roots. They not only boast some of the most well-respected and knowledgeable doctors in the region, but, equally important, Koch Eye has been an active part of the community. From supporting mentoring programs, holiday drives and benefits, and sponsoring sports teams – not to mention the hours that employees give on an individual basis to local organizations – they have truly demonstrated that Warwick is not just a place of business, it’s a city they call home. I am thrilled to help them celebrate this newest milestone, and know that their patients will continue to receive the exceptional quality of care that Koch Eye has become known for. On behalf of the residents of Warwick, I offer my heartfelt congratulations to everyone at Koch.”

Dr. Paul Koch, a pioneer of vision care, believes that this center will enhance the patient experience: “Each time we open a new office we learn from our previous locations and make it better than the last one.  This newest office is more convenient, more versatile, and more technologically advanced than the one it replaced, all details that lead to improved patient care and outcomes.”

Focused entirely on the patient experience, this modern facility provides the best in eye care treatment and management, with convenient hours and walk-in appointments. The brand new Optical Shop will feature a wide array of products from favorite brands, including Maui Jim and Oakley. Additionally, a Surgical Counselor is always on-hand to provide expert advice and referrals for advanced, specialized treatment. The center includes a comfortable, family-friendly waiting area and a refreshment station.

Dr. Thandeka Myeni, Dr. Lionel Lemos, Dr. Stewart Rosenfeld, Dr. Jane Ireland, Dr. Patricia Koch, and Dr. Ronald Furman will be seeing patients at this new location.
