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.
