There is no board for Optometrists in Kenya. Anyone can open up an ‘Optical Shop’ and test your eyes. Please do not be afraid to ask your Optician/Optometrist for their qualifications.
Your eyes are important to us!
Muthaiga Eye Clinic was started in January 2008. It started purely as a pediatric eye clinic, but has grown to provide eye care in specialized areas of Optometric practice. These areas are low vision, specialized contact lenses for babies and those with irregular corneas such as keratoconus and orthoptics. We also conduct School Screening exercises. We offer comprehensive eye care services to both children and adults.
Optometric Services in Kenya mainly concentrate on the prescription and sale of spectacles. There are very few centers in Kenya that also incorporate eye health checks as well as specialized Optometric Care. We pride ourselves in the expertise that we provide to our patients.
