About Us

Optikus understands the power of sight and how the quality of your vision directly affects your ability to live, enjoy and succeed in all aspects of life. With our dedicated team of eye experts, we strive to educate our patients, their families and the wider community about the importance of eye health, clear and comfortable vision and its relatedness to the quality of life. As a member of the ProVision optometrists network, Optikus has the benefits of an independent practice with the resources and support of a national network.

Knowledge is power. We believe that an educated patient is an empowered patient and seek to ensure that you have a complete and comprehensive understanding of your eye health and visual function at all times.
Optikus proudly offers every patient a clear and focused future with functional, affordable and fashionable eyewear for every occasion!
