Kniaziew Optometry Will Open New Location in Wallaceburg

Following a successful launch of their new location in Blenheim earlier this year, Kniaziew Optometry is expanding again with a new eye care location in Wallaceburg at 940 Dufferin Avenue. The location, which is set to open October 1, 2019, will include a full-service office and include pre-testing, eye exam, dispensing and an on-location lab to ensure patients get both timely and quality service.

“This expansion allows us to extend our professional eye care by adding this third location in Chatham-Kent and brings to six as the total for all our offices,” said Dr. Richard Kniaziew, Founder and President of Kniaziew Optometry. “It also ensures that all of our Chatham-Kent patients can receive the top-level eye health care treatment that we are known for over the last four decades. We are so thankful to the community and have been overwhelmed with the support for our team of Doctors”.

Stuart McFadden, Director of Chatham-Kent Economic Development, says the new office is testament to the growth of the area.

“Kniaziew Optometry continues to invest in, and believe in, Chatham-Kent’s growth with their third location,” said McFadden. “We are proud of the continued success of Kniaziew Optometry for giving the great community of Chatham-Kent a high level of professional eye health care.“

The new office at 940 Dufferin Ave is the former location of Chuck’s on Dufferin.  Janice Conway, Chuck’s owner, says, “We are excited to pass on the tradition of this building to such a great company like Kniaziew Optometry.”

The new office will be Kniaziew Optometry’s third location in Chatham-Kent and will complement their current location in Chatham at 149 Grand Avenue and Blenheim at 101 Ellen Street.

Kniaziew Optometry has been serving patients’ eye health care needs in Southwestern Ontario for over 40 years with practices in Leamington, Essex, Tecumseh, Chatham, Blenheim and next Wallaceburg. Kniaziew Optometry offers a wide range of optometry services and eye care products; including eyeglasses, specialty eyewear, frames and contact lenses.

“We have staff willing to help in any way they can,” says Kniaziew, “and we are excited to be a part of such a welcoming community like Wallaceburg.”
