Thank you for choosing Opticare Vision Center Newport!  As a local small business in Northern Kentucky, we value each and every person that comes into our office. While other chains and “big box” glasses retailers focus on massive advertising campaigns to lure you into their office, we have stayed focused on the little details, like customer service, that we think makes our office stand apart.

Ohio Licensed Optician

I started as an optician’s helper in high school and worked my way through college as an optician. After graduating from college in a different field, I went back into the optical field because I loved it so much. After working for 20 years as an optician I became a full-time mom for 16 years. Now I’m thankful to be back in the optical field at Opticare where I have the opportunity to catch up on all the latest lens materials and high-tech lens making equipment. It is great to work with the pleasant staff and professional doctors here. Most of all, it is great to be able to help all the nice patients that come back to this well-established practice year after year.
