for you

Claris Vision was formed in 2011, bringing together three of New England’s top eye care practices to provide to the most comprehensive spectrum of vision care services available in our region. Claris Vision’s team of leading physicians provides personalized exams and guidance for every eye care need, combining the best in eye care treatment and management, with the latest advancements in technology available. Claris Vision sets the new standard for eye care in New England by providing the highest level of care with a personal touch.

The idea for developing a unified center of excellence in eye care in our region arose from the shared principles of the first three practices that make up Claris Vision; Koch Eye Associates and Seacoast Eye Associates in Rhode Island and Eye Health Vision Centers in Southeastern Massachusetts.
Koch Eye Associates
Koch Eye Associates was founded in 1981 in a small building on Tollgate Road in Warwick, Rhode Island. In the beginning, Drs. Paul and Patricia Koch were the only physicians in the practice, averaging four to five patients a day. Paul’s wife answered the phone and handled the front desk.

Over time, Koch Eye Associates grew into one of New England’s largest eye care practices and became a major regional Center of Excellence. Koch Eye Associates joined Claris Vision, bringing over 20 doctors from eight office locations, three laser vision centers, and a dedicated surgery center. The Koch Eye Associates locations serve as regional training centers for eye care professionals, as well as a clinical trial site for the New England College of Optometry.

Eye Health Vision Centers
Eye Health Vision was founded in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1978 by Dr. Stephen Sullivan as a solo ophthalmology practice. Eye Health Vision grew to be the leading eye care practice serving Southeastern Massachusetts and the surrounding Rhode Island communities. Eye Health Vision joined Claris with 24 eye care doctors, including 17 licensed opticians, and 165 employees at five locations, including the Eye Health Vision Surgical Center.
