“This expansion allows us to better service the large increase in demand we have seen at our current Chatham location at 149 Grand Avenue,” says Dr. Richard Kniaziew, Founder and President of Kniaziew Optometry.

It is also another example of Kniaziew’s commitment to the Chatham-Kent community.

“Kniaziew Optometry is a perfect example of a business that has been welcomed with open arms in Chatham-Kent and demonstrates how collaboration between industry, Economic Development, and the community can lead to success for everyone,” said Stuart McFadden, Director of Chatham-Kent Economic Development. “Kniaziew Optometry is just one of many exciting developments in Downtown Chatham and I know my team is working hard to help support the businesses in all of the downtowns across Chatham-Kent.”

This will be Kniaziew Optometry’s third updated location in Chatham-Kent over the past 12 months. Which will complement their current location at 101 Ellen Street in Blenheim and 940 Dufferin Avenue in Wallaceburg.

 “It ensures that all of our Chatham patients receive our top-level eye health care treatment that we are known for over the last 40 years. We are overwhelmed with support for our team of Doctors,” said Dr. Kniaziew.

The new Chatham location will be a full-service office that includes pre-testing, eye exams, and the largest dispensing area in Chatham-Kent. Their on-site lab ensures patients get both timely and quality service.

Kniaziew Optometry offers a wide range of Optometry services and eye care products; including eyeglasses, specialty eyewear, frames, sunglasses and contact lenses. They also feature a variety of custom frame options such as environmentally sustainable wooden frames by “JORDAN” and their own exclusively designed local brand.

“Growing up in Chatham and attending Chatham-Kent Secondary School, I have been very proud to see how this community continues to grow,” said Dr. Alicia Kominek, part of the team of Optometrists at the Chatham location. “Many great things are still to come for this community, we are well positioned to handle the continued growth that is happening.”

Kniaziew Optometry has been serving patients’ eye health care needs in Southwestern Ontario for over four decades with practices in Leamington, Essex, Tecumseh, Wallaceburg, Blenheim, and Chatham.

Kniaziew Optometry will continue to operate at the 149 Grand Ave address until the new location is ready in Spring. Once ready, their team will notify all of their patients well in advance of the new location just over a kilometre from our current office.



 The new Kniaziew Optometry office will be located in the former JFK accounting building at 36 Fourth Street in Chatham, Ontario
